My shoulder was getting sore carrying an overloaded messenger bag, and the crossbody strap did not work very well. I was looking for a backpack that did not look like a school bag, something to go camping with or a survivalist/prepper style.
The Mezzo carries everything I need, including personal PPE supplies, comfortably over one shoulder, or worn as a true backpack. The finish will only look better with age, and I look forward to using it for a long time.
Selected this as a gift for a recent HS grad and she's super happy with it. Will be up to the task of hauling her stuff around NYC through ugly weather, crowded streets, and all over campus.
This is the second Waterfield backpack I've given. My oldest son loves his, but it looks like it was discontinued. Dont remember the name, but it has an extended main compartment for bigger loads, rolls down for regular use. Bring that back, my youngest graduates next May!
This is a beautifully made bag. Bought to replace a shoulder bag that was used to carry a book, papers, music player, earphones, spectacles etc., I find the size just about right. Personally I would have preferred a couple more small (mobile phone, music player) pockets in the main compartment either instead of or as well as the tablet compartment but that is my only gripe. Very comfortable to wear. I am delighted with the black version and would definitely buy again.
I requested a small addition to the Mezzo, and without even a hesitation, Chris made it happen - all in one week! I took the bag on a recent trip, absolutely perfect performance!
I was waiting to write a review because I wanted to put the bag to work here in Berlin. It is the perfect backpack for camera gear and tech gear. Most importantly just daily commuting through the city. The Sutter Slim Laptop Backpack is a sexier bag but the decision to bring to Mezzo was because it held a bit more. Great for movie camera equipment. The magnetic lock makes is easy to get into the pocket and easy too close. It is the perfect backpack. Also people do notice it.
The Mezzo Laptop Backpack is all I need to take my 16-inch MacBook Pro, iPad, accessories on the road
