I love the look and size of the bag. I needed the flexibility of a bag that handled different sized devices from time to time but still remained slim for commuting. It comfortably fits my 13" laptop and an iPad with cords and room for extras.
I originally considered the Bolt Briefcase before I settled on the Air Porter bag which has, so far, proved more than capable of handling the stuff I need for daily use with room left over for those times when I will need to travel further afield. It's also satisfyingly compact compared with its capacity and takes up hardly any more space than my previous bag.
I'm still finding uses for all the internal compartments and pockets but the sizes provided are more than adequate for organising my smaller, and more easily lost, items; the colour of the lining does indeed make it easier to find things inside. It remains to be seen whether I can cram in an A3 pad of layout paper but this, if I'm honest, is not that much of a priority these days.
I was initially drawn to the waxed canvas version but eventually opted for the black Nylon if only for the sake of matching other black Nylon bags I use for business travel.
Black leather trim would, for the sake of consistency, have been the more appropriate choice but the chocolate leather looks so much better. I had wondered whether the leather front flap would have looked more integral if it also covered the top of the bag but this would probably have resulted in a more complicated flap requiring cut-outs for the carry handles (see attached sketch) which is probably contrary to the original design intent.
The leather front pocket flap, however, improves the look of the bag beyond just another black Nylon briefcase and the leather base is a very nice touch (if a little impractical for certain surfaces).
My initial impression of the leather trim on the carry handles was that they were too small but their size is exactly right and feels good in the hand. Whilst the shoulder pad is an excellent addition, the shoulder strap itself should be upgraded to a heavier gauge as it doesn't currently match the quality of the bag fabric. Also, enclosing the strap length adjustment buckle within the shoulder strap can be uncomfortable and this slightly limits the extent of strap adjustability.
Overall, the Air Porter is a good, practical bag which delivers what it was designed to do and the build quality, to a certain extent, justifies the price tag. Time, and travel, will test the durability of the ballistic Nylon but, with proper TLC, I can see this bag being a work and travel companion for many years to come.
Exactly what I was looking for. They thought of everything. Soft materials where they need to be coupled with supportive design in the critical areas make for the perfect case. Love this thing!!
The backpack is the perfect size and design for what I need for commute between home and work everyday. The bag is well-built with stylish, sturdy fabric. I like the side pockets and the panel to attach it to roller board handles.
I love my Sleeve. It’s stylish and sleek and keeps my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil nice and cozy! I love that it fits the new Magic Keyboard. The best case I’ve owned so far. I’d highly recommend the dash if you’re looking for something slim, yet protective.
Crossbody bag is my new go to everyday carry, nothing in my pockets! Super comfortable, great for South Florida when in swim trunks everyday! Thanks again to Gary & crew!! Stay healthy & safe
I like it and the space is great. The quality as always is fabulous. I have several other SF Bags. Just debating on mobile carrying in backpack.
it is soft and more protective than expected. It can even fit my mumba blade case.
Love how I can put IPhone in side zippered pocket, and inside of bag is spacious enough for keys, wallet, and a few makeup articles. Looks sleek too!
Just passed my old iPad Pro onto my son and upgraded to a new 12.9 inch iPad Pro with the magic keyboard. It fits perfectly in my new Air Caddy. The Air Caddy provides excellent protection and has just the right amount of space for accessories like Apple Pencil, charger and cables. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase. I am a big fan of WaterField and own many of their products.
You would never think that a cord clip could be a conversation piece, but then, you’ve never owned these cord clips. Simple. Quality. Class. Three words to describe this product. I am glad I made this purchase.
I was a little bit worried at first with the size, as I thought wouldn't have space for my travel stuff, not even for my passport. However, it has just enough space. The pen wasn't send in my order, but I received a good client support and some options to correct that issue.
I am very satisfied with my Sutter Tech Sling. It surpasses my expectations by far! – You can see that it was really made with passion.
I love it !!!
Thank you very much!
This bag is beautiful. I ordered the blue version (blue is my favorite color), and I was blown away with the color. The fabric has a fantastic look and feel. It's definitely high quality. The workmanship on the bag was first-rate. I ended up returning it because it wasn't exactly what I wanted. I did order another quality bag from Waterfield. I was too small. I'm planning on ordering a third bag from the company because of the quality of the materials and the workmanship. My only complaint is that more bags do not come in that beautiful blue color.
This is a beautiful, thin backpack for “use the essentials.” Pockets are handy and well thought out.
Really love how soft the compartment is for the switch and great for carrying the switch around in it.
I really like it, it’s comfortable to use it, practical and has the enough space for my stuff when I go for a walk o when a ride a bike. Most time I bring with me my sunglasses, wipes (to clean everything I may need to touch you know because of COVID ) hand sanitizer, a book, a manga, AirPods, my phone, wallet, a bottle of water and everything fits well.
This is my second bag from Waterfield, the bolt exceeded my expectations, customer service is also outstanding, there was a problem with shipping and even though it was not any issue on their side they helped every step of the way until I received my bag, definitely will recommend and continue buying their bags.
I've been hoping to find a bag for may iPad and rMarkable Tablet for a long time. I should have know Waterfield would make it. A beautiful bag that holds what I need - and a lot more. Could not be more pleased. Thanks, Gary and all your crew.
Has a very nice look externally and feels very well made. Comfortable to carry and has plenty of space. Went for the larger version.
Great quality products and super fast delivery to my village in Switzerland (just 4 days - awesome!)
Fits perfectly with or without the Smart Keyboard, slips easily into whatever bag I'm taking, and comfortable to grab if it’s all I need. I love the style and the material, a combination of tough on the outside and tender on the inside!
I needed a bag for work that could hold a tablet, a reference book, some notebooks and magazines, a water bottle, along with some odds and ends. While I already have a couple of Waterfield Design messenger bags that I use, I wanted to get one that would still hold all that, but be smaller and lighter. This does the job perfectly. It balances the form factor of a backpack with the accessibility of a messenger bag.
I ordered the Air Caddy for iPad Pro 12.9 inch in blue leather. I was truly blown away when I received it. The materials and execution exceeded my already high expectations for a product from Waterfield Designs. Truly outstanding with a terrific price. Thank you!
As always, this is a wonderfully crafted sleeve with handy pockets for accessories. I purchased this sleeve for the new iPad Pro 2020. The leather of this air caddy for the iPad Pro is smooth and beautiful. I do like the blue color. And the customer service is great!
Excellent materials, design, construction, sizing, and aesthetics. And all at a reasonable price. Thank you!
Fits like a perfectly but with enough room to slide out the Macbook.
Good protection for naked switch lite. Easy access and classy look, cannot go wrong!
This bag is just what I needed for site visits, client meetings, travel, and the current balance of working remotely. There is enough space for my computer, accessories, camera, lens, paperwork, and even room to spare.
I've had my own Waterfield canvas laptop sleeve for a couple years and it's as good as new. I purchased this one for my Mom for her new laptop and she loves it as well. The quality is great and the canvas and leather look awesome.
Absolutely love it. It feels smooth and well constructed sleeve. Use it daily and I love it.
the sleeve is well made and the Forza material has nice feel to it. The sleeve has soft padded interior. The ipad fits snuggly in the sleeve. As with all Waterfield products it is well made and functional.
WaterField is quality products.
Gary and his teams rock
Very nice leather case for the Apple Pencil. Having a case with a clip keeps it from getting lost in my bag.
