Well designed!

This bag is durable, with just the right amount of depth and pockets. I’ve used it twice in two weeks for fall cycling tours in cool weather, and it’s kept my gear straight.

We bought this bag as a birthday gift for our son. Your bag is genius, keeping that cycling gear organized. You make us look like gift-giving geniuses! We also gave him a Jersey Pocket Tool Case, again kudos to the best gift-giving parents, thanks to Waterfield.

Gary hits another home room!

I've been a fan of Waterfield Designs for a long time, going back to 2012 when I made my first purchase. Everything that I've ever purchased from them (Muzetto, laptop/tablet sleeves, bags) exudes quality, workmanship, durability, utility, and timeless/practical design - and they all still get frequent use, up to 10 years later! My last purchase from Waterfield was in 2016, so it's been a few years. Gotta love the consistency - unsurprisingly the cycling tote fits all the above descriptors.

Like Gary, I'm a cyclist (roadie), ride 4-5 times per week, with destination rides a couple times per week. When Waterfield introduced the cycling tote, it was a no-brainer. It's PERFECT for transporting all my gear, and filling each tote compartment serves as a practical check-list to prevent forgetting essentials. The side pockets are plenty deep, minimizing the risk of items falling out during transport, and the front zippered compartment is perfect for security and quick access to things like your keys, phone, watch, wallet, etc. The handles are a great length - long enough to sling over your shoulder, but short enough that it won't drag on the ground when carrying with your hand.

My only suggestion would be to make it available in more color choices. Quite a few of my cycling community are planning to purchase their own Waterfield Cycling Tote!

so far, so useful

I've only had the chance to use the tote once so far. I like the following things about it: water bottle and shoe slots -- less chance of forgetting shoes, no chance of tipped over water bottle. My helmet fits! My changing towel fits! my change of clothes fits! And, I can put the handles over my shoulders and ride my bike with it down to my ride to the ride. Note: this probably wouldn't work that well if you needed to ride more than a short distance, but in a pinch...


The Cycling Tote is sized to keep all your cycling gear organized and easy to transport.

The Cycling Tote has 4 internal pockets —  two on each side of the bag. They are tall enough to keep a pair of cycling shoes and two water bottles upright.  The main compartment  holds everything else plus your helmet. Two exterior side pockets are for energy bars and cycling tool kit. The front zipper pocket secures keys, a wallet, and other valuables.


Check out our Jersey Pocket Tool Case to hold a mini pump, spare tube, CO2 cartridge, tire levers, and a phone. See the rest of our cycling products in the Cycling Accessories Collection.



When you have to drive to start your ride, you want to make sure you're well-prepared and haven't forgotten anything. This is where the Cycling Tote comes in handy. Its open design lets you carry all the items you'll need for your ride and for just-in-case situations. It's always a good idea to take along extra gear in case it rains or gets too cold or too hot.  If you're dressed comfortably, your ride will be more enjoyable. 


The four side pockets for shoes and water bottles ensure these items won't be left behind; they shouldn't be empty when you head out. The pockets are tall so water bottles stay upright, preventing accidental leakage.  Your helmet and everything else goes in the main, spacious compartment.  Store energy bars in the side pockets and valuables in the front zippered pocket. 


Heavy Duty 15 oz. Waxed Canvas

Not all canvas totes are created equal. Lower quality totes use 6 oz. canvas. Totes designated as “durable” use 12 oz. canvas. At 15 ounces, our waxed canvas exceeds the industry standard, yet still feels lightweight. It has a naturally rugged, distressed look and can be re-waxed any time you want to freshen it up. 

Our canvas comes from a reputable mill that has produced these waxed fabrics since 1930. This specialized textile is coated with Martexin™ Original Wax and won't require much cleaning. Stains can usually be wiped off with a damp cloth. 


Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax, which is the original wax used to coat your canvas bag.
