Welcome to our San Francisco workshop
To put it short, this high-end Air Pods Max case cradles your head phones in luxury. The craftsmanship is second to none!! This bag maximizes functionality without compromising the beautiful appearance of it! You will definitely be a “BOSS” if you own this leather case!
Case is made from premium materials and has a lot of pockets for extra accessories.
I was, at first, very skeptical about spending $100 on a case for an already very expensive set of headphones. But truth be told, I just needed the case’s functionality that shuts off the AirPods Max. Yet I was so pleasantly surprised at the superior craftsmanship of this case - it’s been a while since I have seen and felt something so impressive. Bravo to the Waterfield team!
Light weight convenient everyday carry bag. Take my Apple 12.9 iPad Pro everyday back and forth to work with the extra pocket used for my wallet, cable and charger and miscellaneous stuff. Do wish they gave you the option for a small carrying handle. The supreme shoulder strap is a very good option to add.
Beautiful, very well made case. I use it exclusively over the original now.
Cycling Ride Pouch
Absolutely over the moon with this case.
Craftsmanship and workmanship are absolutely A1, totally faultless. You can certainly tell they take great pride in their work. The leather smells just like a nice pair of leather shoes. Admittedly the Waterfield case is not as cheap as others on the market, but once you see this Waterfield case in the flesh, you can see where the cost has gone, from its top quality real leather (and yes it is REAL leather), absolutely faultless craftsmanship and finish, and very well thought out design and features.
I find it’s been really well thought out, with all the little pockets and compartments, which means you have everything with you in the case for to charge them up. For example, I have in the front zipped pocket, the Lightning cable, in the back mesh pocket I have a cleaning cloth, and inside where the headphones live, is a little mesh pocket which has a little velcro strap which is for to keep a USB charging plug in. The mesh back pocket, and the front zipped pocket are very roomy, so you can certainly put other things in them, from what I have mentioned.
The lining inside is insanely soft and there is no way that it would scratch the AirPods Max. The magnetic butterflies work perfectly and put the AirPods Max into ultra low power mode instantly (which I’ve confirmed by seeing the AirPods Max disappearing from the battery widget and also showing disconnected in the Bluetooth settings on the iPhone).
Also with the AirPods Max in the case, I’ve shook the case around (to represent them been carried around in a backpack for example) to see if they would move away from the butterfly magnets and reconnect and they DID NOT reconnect, so they definitely stay put.
All in all, well worth the month wait and they only took three days to arrive here in the UK from San Francisco (they would’ve arrived in two days but FedEx messed up somewhere along the way, once it arrived in the UK and it was delivered a day later than it should have been).
So to sum up:
If you are wanting an exceptionally well made, faultless craftsmanship, and top quality materials case for your AirPods Max and also one that will work like the Apple Smart Case (i.e. it putting the AirPods Max into their "ultra low power mode") then this Waterfield case should be at the top of your list.
Double-Take Sleeve for iPad and MacBook
As usual a flawless product
Finn Access Wallet
Use this for office and general everyday use.
Main pocket is full carrying MacBook, iPad, folded medium cotton shopping bag, larger Bluetooth headphones in a case and a light hoodie. Wallet and knife and some sanitizer fit nicely in the inner zipper pocket as well. Bulky items need to be stored on the bottom as the bag tapers starting from about halfway down from the top of the bag.
In the front pocket, the inner middle pocket is great for my phone and my glasses case barely fits into the slightly smaller inner pocket on the same side as the key hook. Waterfields small tech pocket holding tech gear fills up the rest of the front pocket.
Worth noting that due to the tapered design of the bag and the expansive front pocket, if the front pocket has heavier items it can keep the bad from standing upright. Not 100% ideal but it comes with the essential design of the bag.
The top 15% of my 24oz hydroflask barely pops out of the top of the side beverage pockets and it is snug but durable holding a 26oz yeti rambler.
Everything about the construction is great per usual, same great materials found in most WaterField bags. The top handle feels amazing and the straps and back padding are comfortable.
I’ve purchased this bag in black ballistic and brown leather as well as canvas -the black wasn’t for me. Great bag but doesn’t have as much character as the waxed canvas IMO.
Overall I love the bag and use it daily. It would be nice if the top of the bag was slightly less tapered, it would allow room for not only bulkier items but perhaps some easy access inner pockets similar to the bolt backpack. But as a general use every day backpack this is close to perfect and I don’t wish I chose another bag (except MAYBE WaterField’s bolt backpack..)
Very versatile sling bag for the go
The Airpods Max Shield case has great build quality, lots of neat built in storage pockets and feels premium. I particularly like the plush lining, quality of the leather for the case I chose and the case is smaller than it looks online which is great for placing inside of a book bag.
Got the “woolie” version and like it a lot. Fits my iPad with Smart Keyboard perfectly. Open top allows charging with in the sleeve, and safety elastic strap secures it. Great product and well made!
"If you’re interested in their products, just go for what looks like would work for you. I have wasted so much money on buying cheap bags, never being satisfied, when I should’ve just gone with this company.This won’t be my last purchase from them either." - Casey C., Arkansas, USA
"I have purchased in excess of 10 items from this company. It’s one of those situations where I enjoy paying the bill." - James S., Florida, USA
"I have been buying from Waterfield since my first Titanium PowerBook way back in 2001. I have purchased new bags as new designs were created, not because the old bags wore out, but because they kept getting more clever and unique. I still have 6 bags I can’t part with, but I have given many to friends and relatives who are still enjoying the quality and thoughtful design." - Troy S., Illinois, USA
Outback Duo Laptop Brief

"The Zoom is perhaps the best bag for Apple's compact MacBooks and iPad Pros that we've seen. The quality of manufacture is typical of what we expect from WaterField."Apple World Today, February 9, 2021
AirPods Max Shield Case
4.5 out 5 stars
"The case that Apple should have included. It's uncomplicated but thoughtfully designed. It's relatively soft leather but rigid to offer some crush protection. There's lots of padding and an absurdly soft and fluffy material inside."MacWorld, January 15, 2021
