Highly versatile!!

I have only had a couple of trips overseas so far one long haul and one short. Also used as a everyday carry. Great quality and just the right amount of organisation. Whether I’m heading to the coffee shop or office to work or travelling I can easily adapt with the pouches I bought making it extremely easy to match my ‘journey’.... will be buying more just because they are good not because I need them :-)

Great bag for travel

I recently got this bag and took it on a Thanksgiving trip to Cabo. I could've packed my entire week in this bag I think. Very roomy, lots and lots of pockets. Great looking bag. I also added the little bag that goes with it for my personal items on the airplane. I felt very organized the entire trip. This is the bag I have been looking for, and will use for many years to come. Great design folks.

Perfect Travel Bag

I'm on the road a lot. 75k+ air miles annually. I've been searching for the perfect travel bag for my 1-2 night trips each week. This bag is perfect for these types of trips. Fits everything I need with room to spare. The best part is that you can quickly tell each piece of the bag is designed with purpose. No feature, pocket, or zipper (or magnetic closure) is put in place without being meant to be useful. It all looks very professional as well. It's the prefect bag for me.

Another fantastic bag

This is actually my second Air Duffle - my spouse 'borrowed' my first one and uses it every time we get on a flight. As with last review, great quality, excellent organization and just the right size for what I usually need to carry on for most any business trip.

exactly what I wanted...

I purchased the Air Porter when it was released , have traveled with it ever since.Wonderful product. Yet I had to admit to myself it is a tad too small for what i want in a carry on bag.IF I loaded the Porter with my laptop, iPad, wallet, etc I had to put the book(s) I wanted to read into a coat pocket.. A few weeks ago I saw the picture and web site description of the Air Duffle and I knew "This is it" and , indeed, upon receiving it I said "This is it, this is what I wanted and needed". Its like a Tardis, trim on the outside but so very capacious on the inside. Pockets, divided compartments, Key strap, sturdy handles, comfy shoulder strap. And a large internal area for my books, carryon quart bag, some clothing etc etc.
The side zippered pocket-pouches are just right to handily albeit safely carry passport, boarding pass (I always print one in addition to loading on my iPhone, just in case). I love the brown waxed canvas - my closet is awash with Waterfield items with that material.THIS time I chose the black ballistic nylon to shave a bit of weight. When Duffle arrived , I realized it matches may Waterfield backpack perfectly as well as coordinates with my black roller bag. So,short trip or long, I am wonderfully, Waterfield-ly,equipped
