A modern take on the European military backpack


Ballistic Nylon Tuck Backpack with Premium Full Grain Leather

“The versatility of the Tuck backpack is essential; use it as a professional work bag, pack it up for the weekend or go straight from one to the other, ”said company owner Gary Waterfield.

WaterField Designs kicks off the new year with the Tuck Backpack, a modern and versatile backpack that eliminates the need for separate bags for work and play. Meticulous craftsmanship shines in every seam and carefully crafted detail. A streamlined version of a European military backpack, the new backpack combines traditional and modern styles with technical features and ergonomic shoulder straps, making it ideal for a busy day of activity on those days of work or weekends.

“A key feature of the Tuck is its flexibility to hold a little or a lot while looking relatively compact on the back. The secret is the side panel, which folds up when the backpack isn’t full, forming a natural crease to keep the bag thin, ”explained business owner Gary WaterField. “When you have more to carry, the bag expands and your items stay tidy under the flap. Hence the name ‘Tuck’.

The backpack’s spacious, gold-lined main compartment adapts perfectly to bulky and thin items, and firm foam inserts reinforce the front, back and bottom panels to help maintain its upright shape. Storage under a desk at work, the laptop backpack acts as a tech locker with padded laptop and tablet pockets (fits up to a 16-inch MacBook Pro M1 and 12.9-inch iPad) and a large space for files and accessories. When on the go, the ballistic nylon or waxed canvas sides crinkle and then tighten securely with one-way magnetic clasps under a full-grain leather or waxed canvas flap, which helps maintain a slim profile for the agility.

A zippered flap pocket relieves the trouser pockets of frequently accessed items and helps compress the bag further. Stretch and breathable side pockets expand to accommodate a water bottle and umbrella while preventing moisture from building up inside. Magnets keep the pockets flush with the bag when empty. Whether worn to the office followed by a night out with friends or from dawn to dusk while visiting a bustling city, ergonomic neoprene padded shoulder straps and moisture-wicking backpack liner keep shoulders and shirts comfortable. dry.
