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."

perfect portable work companion

Recently moved to an iPad Pro 11" w/ Apple folio keyboard and pencil for portable productivity (email, notes, basic docs and presos during meetings, travel, any time away from desktop). Wanted some extra protection, to keep pencil from getting lost, plus room for small accessories (lens cloth, pen, USB-C multiport adapter). The AirCaddy hit all the 'must have's and then some ( love the thin slot pocket with super soft fabric one side if I ever need to carry the ipad without cover/screen protector, or larger main slot with full case/keyboard). Canvas design looks awesome, feels sturdy, gets lots of comments.

Thoughtful design, durable construction with craftmanship

I purchased the Air Caddy as an organizer for travel, especially during long flights. The organizer pockets inside are thoughtfully sized and arranged. The signature "golden" liner inside makes things easy to spot. The main exterior zipper covers two sides of the pouch, so it is convenient to access. Unlike the video with the waxed canvas, I opted to get the durable, ballistic heavy duty nylon to match the ballistic nylon that I get for the rest of my Waterfield gear. The best part of this and all my Waterfield gear is the quality of the stitching and quality control.

Best Thing For Travel

I Travel quite often and I always put my backpack under my seat. The first thing I do is throw my iPad, iPad stand, head phones and snacks. They all go into the pocket in the seat in front of me. It is so nice to remove this pouch from my backpack and throw it the pocket in front of me. I don't have to worry about losing anything. Why didn't I buy this years ago? Good news I have it now makes my life much easier. Will be buying more products from WaterField.

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.
