I ordered/purchased the Air Caddy and the travel wallet (large) in canvas and picked up both at Waterfield brick and mortar location in San Francisco. Originally I wanted the Air Caddy in leather but seeing the fabric of both Air Caddy and the travel wallet changed my mind! The canvas has immediate character and gorgeous! I am currently in Kyoto and have incorporated the use of both in my outings each day. They are performing beyond expectation and so glad I purchased for trip. Thank you!!

I wanted something simple and small for air travel that I could just pull out of my bag and have all the things I need with me at my seat.

This is it. Everything I need, nothing I don’t. It’s well thought out and the quality is great.

It holds my iPad mini, Kindle, phone, battery pack, AirPods and cables, all while staying low profile.

needed (another) Waterfield Bag- no - seriously

Had just come back from a cross country flight and realized i had a need that required filling - and since it was luggage related, there's only one place to go.

So I have a laptop backpack that I usually put my iPad mini, earbuds etc in. but in such a small plane, it was horribly impossible to retrieve my bag from under the seat in front of me, once the plane was goin'

What was needed was, i know, ANOTHER BAG- small enough to stash INSIDE the laptop bag, to not anger the "One Personal Item" gods, but big enough to hold my iPad mini, iPhone, ear buds, and maybe a health food bar (snickers)

this bag fits the bill perfectly - I put a carabiner on it, and it clips to the seat pocket in front of me, and i don't lose anything.

a place for everything, and everything in its place.

Gavin H. (Victoria, Australia)
Fantastic product

Exactly what I needed - fits in the back seat pocket of an airplane, fits my ipad, wallet, keys, headphones etc, and looks fantastic (I got the Blue Leather one)

Air Caddy is a perfect fit!

Three nights each week, I travel from my day job at the high school to teach at a community college. Traveling with a MacBook Air and iPad Pro, along with all of the cables needed to hook everything into the classroom technology was becoming a bother. The air caddy makes everything easier. This one bag keeps the iPad and accessories into one kit. Power, HDMI, USB C cables, dock, magic keyboard and pencil all have there place. This organization is appreciated when packing up after a long day. No more worries about leaving something behind. Everything that I need to to work is with me whenever I have this bag.

Like all of the Waterfield products purchased, the air caddies (I bought two, ballistic nylon and waxed canvas for my old iPad Air) are finely built. The way they look and feel is a statement of quality workmanship and careful and thoughtful design.

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."
