"The Waterfield Air Porter carry-on bag is a perfect bag for traveling. It’s large enough for just about anything you want to carry, yet small enough to fit under airline seats for easy reach."

The WaterField Air Porter and Air Caddy Are Great… but Is WaterField Making a Mistake?

GearDiary - November 13, 2017

"Waterfield set out to make a great travel bag and … mission accomplished. Whether you only get the Air Porter or you get the Air Porter in combination with the Air Caddy, you are sure to appreciate the design, the craftsmanship and, most importantly, the functionality of this Waterfield offering; both are great for travel."

The Air Porter from Waterfield Designs

Joe Cieplinski - October 26, 2017

"If you’re in the market for a travel carry-on that’s designed with a ton of thought and attention to detail, that’s made in America by people who are paid decent wages, and that will last for many years to come (I’m about to enter year 8 for my Muzetto) the Air Porter is certainly worth a look."

Fantastic iPad Pro bag from SFBags!

The Air Caddy is a perfect bag to use for a flight or to carry your iPad Pro 11 around with you during the day with space for a few cables, AirPods, a charger and the pencil. And it’s well made with top quality material!

Waterfield Air Caddy

The concept for this small bag is not new, but it is well executed here. Space for an iPad and a few accessories. Well built and it fits easily within the sleeve with my MacBook in the Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall. Great job!


Air Caddy

Perfect Carry-aAll Type Pouch For iPad & Other Accessories

When I travel, it is super helpful to have my iPad, Airpods, and a couple of other items in one spot that I can pull out of my main bag. I also often carry my iPad and those same peripherals on their own. This was a perfect solution - helps you to stay organized. The quality of the pouch is great, with the orange/gold lining - makes it easy to find everything. When I'm not moving around, it's nice to also keep those items in one place while I'm at home - I keep the pouch on a counter. Enjoying the organization!

Just what the doctor ordered

The Air Caddy suits my needs perfectly. I fly often for business and use an iPad rather than laptop for inflight work. The Air Caddy allows me to keep my iPad Air, iPhone, cables, reading glasses and Bose noise-cancelling earbuds all handy in the seat-back pocket while my briefcase is either under the seat in front of me or in the overhead storage bin. It makes retrieving items I need a breeze. The quality and utility inspired me to also purchase the Dopp Kit and the Tech Pocket. Waterfielding my life has been good.

How do you suggest I clean the ballistic nylon?

The ballistic nylon is *very* durable and will take scrubbing with a stiff brush and mild soap. Blot with towels/rags and let the case dry out. This should have the case looking good as new.

How do you suggest I clean the waxed canvas?

Waxed Canvas isn’t the easiest item on the planet to clean - part of the character-building process with Waxed Canvas is how it ages with scuffs, dirt, stains and all. Still, there are things you can do. This article gives you a good idea of how to clean and re-wax if and when you are ready. They suggest using dish soap and soft brush to clean, then drip dry, then take a hot hairdryer to heat up the wax and redistribute it. This will soften any blemishes and help with the dirt. The lines and crinkles on the waxed canvas are actually normal, and happens in shipping sometimes. All you have to do is use a hair dryer and you can flatten out the wax with your hand.
