"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."

"This is the ultimate carry on bag for frequent fliers. No more choosing between legroom and a laptop bag when you fly."

"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."

"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."

"The WaterField Designs Air Porter was created in collaboration with customers who travel and is perfect for those who find themselves on airplanes to get work done."
I got my Air Caddy the day before I left on vacation, and used it on six different flights in the last month. My favorite part was how well it performed even when over-stuffed and shoved into seat-back pockets that were a little too small. At one point it it held all of these things at once: my iphone 10x and its external battery case; my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil in a case; an external battery, a power plug, a 3-way retractable charging cable, kleenex, aspirin, chapstick, eyedrops, Stevia (sweetener) packets, pen, small Moleskin notebook, Apple AirPods, and Bose earbuds in their spongy case. I couldn’t zip the Air Caddy closed with all that stuff in it, and I could only get it about halfway into some of the smaller seat-back pockets, but it still worked perfectly to keep things at hand and out of the germy pocket that probably held used kleenex and pretzel crumbs. Plus, it looked way cool. :-D My only wish is that the Air Caddy was about 1/4 inch taller to better hold my iPad Pro in a case that also holds the Apple Pencil (and is therefore larger than usual).
My daughter has lost more things that I care to count on airlines, gave her this piece of gear on her last trans-pacific flight and it was perfect for keeping all her little items and phone. Well made and will be getting one for my other daughter.
My new iPad Mini 5 has become part of my EDC, so I wanted something both protective and stylish. Waterfield was my first stop and, as usual, did not disappoint. For traveling, I bought the Air Caddy, which can hold the Mini, a Magic keyboard, a power bank, power brick, Logitech Crayon, small notepad, and charging cables. A perfect fit in my backpack’s laptop pocket. And for everyday use, I bought the Mini travel case. It’s smaller version of the Air Caddy, with just enough room for my tablet, Crayon, power bank and lightning cable. (It’s a little snug but at the curved corner, likely due to my iPad mini’s folio case.)
Both look great, keep everything secure, and I couldn’t be more please
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.
