Perfect travel companion

I bought this bag for my trips back and forth to the office, and travel to our remote clients. I needed a bag that would let me carry/organize my small bits, my computer, and be small enough that I would be inclined to take it with me, and still have everything I need, all in its place. I leave tomorrow for a flight across the country, and while I have only had the bag for 2 weeks, it has become everything I wanted a bag to be. The colours inside are beautiful, the pockets the perfect size, and it feels right at home on my shoulder, I couldn’t image using anything else. And besides that, everyone at the office loves it, it is beautiful and very well made. I would have no problems recommending this bag to anyone. Absolutely get the optional sleeve, I thought I would be useful, but it is perfect beyond words, and works very well with the bag. Very happy customer!!

Well designed bag

I waited to write this review until after the Air-Porter and I endured our first long haul trip together. It passed this test with flying colors! The care taken in designing inside storage worked beautifully for me. I had easy access to all the items I needed on my flights. No digging around and planting your elbow in your seat mate's ribs since it can sit on your lap with all accessible when needed. Was able to pack all electronics, iPad and support gear, headphones, scarf, sweater, prescriptions & more without overloading. I also think it looks good! Expect to happily use it for many years

Fabulous quality and service

In his videos, Gary talks about product and customer service quality. I have to say, he really means it. I purchased an Air Porter bag and loved it. I immediately purchased a sling bag to go with it. From start to finish, the service has been impeccable. Thank you so much.

Beautiful Bag

I have been trying to find the right bag for years and it looks like I finally found it. The design is the right combination of rugged and professional look. The space is amazing when I compare it to bags that I have owned of similar footprint in the past. I have a couple of longer business trips coming up to put it through its paces.

Just a lovely bag

Always exciting to get a new delivery from SF Bags. This doesn't disappoint and will perfectly replace the travel back pack I've been using for years. Not big, not small, but just the right size for overnights and perfect as a carry on addition on longer trips. I travel with a 13" mac book pro and 10.5" ipad pro plus sundry stuff. Better still this doesn't just come with me for travel, its a great briefcase when there's not enough room in my Field Muzetto.

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."
