Overall the build quality, style, and materials are all superb. I was surprised, however, that the bag does not open flat. The computer compartment does, because the zipper extends further around, but the larger compartment is sort of awkward to fill because it doesn't open flat in the same way. You obviously took great care in design, so I'm wondering why this is the case.

Misleading Representation

In the universe of choices, the Air Porter was the only case I wanted. Disappointed to open box and find a very dark brown canvas, completely different from Waterfield (and Wirecutter) lovely tan on tan representation. SFD rep told me to return it at my expense.

Well built and strong. Looking forward to taking this carry on airporter bag on my next flight.

HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR CANVAS

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER AND WAXED CANVAS

 

If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Air Porter Carry-On Bag, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.

 

Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
