A Fabulous Bag

It was fun to be a customer that was allowed to give feed back on design process for the Air Porter. I especially enjoyed that background music on the videos. I have about 6 SF Bags. So it is the only thing I use. It is perfect for airline travel. The small bag in the back of the seat is wonderful. ( Doesn’t fit on Frontier Airlines) but all others it is great. There is so much room that I can include things I don’t normally bring on business trips.

This bag is AMAZING!

I love this bag but even more I love WaterField! Their attention to detail, quality materials, expert craftsmanship, and great customer care is unmatched and it is all shown in this bag. I highly recommend this to anybody who travels a lot and needs something not only very good looking, but very practical as well. Thanks WaterField!

Love the bag, great organization ... missing the pen pockets though.

This is my first WaterField and I love it. I’ve seen their other bags with my friends, colleagues and always loved them. But they never had anything that met what I needed for my travels.
And then came Airporter. This is “one bag to rule them all”. I got the bag, caddy and just to have it all matching, picked up the canvas wallet too.
The bag has everything that you may need. I am a sucker for bags and have tried many brands - including some high end ones. In fact I have about 9 bags in my attic. Airporter is newest and my favorite bag.
From organization, it has enough pockets, and if you buy a caddy, you will love having you iPad in a separate removable bag.
The main compartment has 6 small pockets and 2 medium size ones. The laptop compartment has 2 large ones. And then there is front area for caddy and a smaller zippered pocket for travel documents/ wallet etc. As usual, bright lining makes it easy to find stuff and the bag is going to age with time.

I use it for my 12.5” Dell machine and it fits perfect; even the power charging port lines up with the cut outs. The main compartment is large enough to place your Bose Noise Canceling headset with carry case, a large book, a novel and a large size Moleskine notebook.

As i said, it is almost perfect. The bag is missing pen pockets.
The caddy has a vertical stiching that serves as the Apple Pencoil pocket, but the main bag has none. I can clip the pens on the large pockets but they move around (and I have just used it for one day). Just like the caddy, there should have been two vertical stiching lines that would be ideal for two pens. A travel bag for international travelers,needs a pen pocket to fill forms in various countries; and you need to know where the pen is. That’s all this bag is missing.

Overall very happy with the bag, and yes, this is more than a travel bag, it is perfect for daily use bag. I’m looking forward to taking it with me ... everywhere.

Everyday Carry

Went from a messenger bag to the Air Porter for everyday carry. Better organization of the stuff I want to have with me.

Another great bag from Waterfield

My first outing with the Air Porter was a recent transcontinental trip, and it was great. It's not bulky, but it's big enough for all of the necessities (noise-cancelling headphones, laptop, food, book, etc.). Note: with my Surface Book inside, it only barely fit under the seat in front of me. So be sure to check the size of your laptop.
