My husband asked me to find him the impossible laptop bag as a birthday gift for him as he two-steps-forward-one-step-backs his way through "return to office." He knew it was a challenge, and knew if one of us could find it, it would be me. Something effortlessly cool, nothing too serious, but also not like everyone else's and no "tech bro" vibes. I wanted to make sure it was something well made, and preferably made in the US. I think I nailed it?! So far so good. He's only had it a couple of weeks and that means he's only used a few times. I like how the magnets keep things looking streamlined when the bag is not too full, like it will mostly be, but there is some great room to fit things in when needed. A very happy find and made me look like a the perfect gift giver!
This bag really screams quality: all materials are well designed and feel good to the touch. The leather smells like real quality leather and the shoulder straps are soft. Also, I like that the bag stands up on its own.
However, I have one major problem with this bag: when I put in my 16” M1 Max MacBook Pro with the Waterfield Neo Sleeve, the MacBook is protruding quite a bit out of its compartment. This wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t for the leather flap. When I slide my finger under the flap from the side I can feel the aluminum from the MacBook - and when there’s room for my finger, there’s definitely a chance of rain entering the backpack and ruining your 4000$ purchase.
All in all, I really like the look but I’m worried going into the winter season here in Germany, where it can rain heavily. The bag is just too expensive for only being a “summer backpack” in my opinion. Cannot recommend.
The Tuck Backpack is an excellent bag and especially good when traveling to conferences. Highly recommend.
Just got my Tuck backpack. It's truly excellent quality. Thanks Gary!
This backpack is seriously the best I've ever owned; it fits so much and yet feels so compact. It comfortably fits my 14' HP Spectre, iPad Mini, Switch, a change of clothes, a pair of shoes, and honestly looks like it could fit more. I always loved bags that have the big flap on top but was always put off by the fiddly buckles/flimsy magnets, but the Fidlock buckles are a godsend. Thank you for such an amazing product!
