I like my Air Caddy

I’m using my waxed canvas Air Caddy to hold a 12.9” iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard, along with a standard 8 1/2” x 11 5/8” legal pad of lined paper, an Apple Pencil, and a ballpoint pen. I’m very happy with the overall look and utility of the Air Caddy. I would have preferred a more subtle logo than the leather WaterField patch that came sewn onto the Air Caddy (and sewn on slightly crooked, unfortunately). I ended up removing the leather logo patch with a seam ripper. This left a mark on the Air Caddy, but to my eyes it fits in with the distressed look of the waxed canvas. My only other recommendation for future versions of Air Caddy is that one of the two interior pockets in the main compartment be enlarged slightly to hold a standard 5” x 8” lined notepad. Overall, the Air Caddy is a great way to carry my iPad when I need to take it somewhere, and I like the look of the waxed canvas.

Gadgeteer - December 16, 2017

"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."

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."

Keep frequently-accessed items in the seat pocket in front of you

"There aren’t many seat pocket organizers out there and this one is perfect. The gold lining makes everything easy to see and the size fits everything I need in-flight." - Linfa



The Air Caddy was originally designed to go with the Air Porter Carry-on as part of the Community Design for a Next Generation Inflight Carry. Its purpose: store the items one would needs during the flight so they are readily accessible. It had to fit in the seat back pocket and store an iPad for inflight entertainment. 


The product has evolved to be more multi-purpose. However, for frequent flyers, the combination of Air Caddy + Air Porter is a preferred choice.
