Great EDC pouch!

Another great product from Waterfield (I have a couple of bags and Finn wallets) USA-made (big plus). The Essentials pouch is just that. I carry a slim folder and pen in the outer pocket. Nite-Ize S-Biner on the outer loop for keys with attached AA light. Inner pockets holds my iPhone, compact Finn wallet, card wallet and either a multi-tool or SAK.

Essential iPhone pouch

Perfect for me!!! I have my keys, iPhone, and wallet zipped in - all in one place securely attached cross body under my coat when I go out. When I come home, I place the pouch (with its contents) on a hook inside the front door. I will never misplace any of the contents of my pouch again!

Waterfield iPhone Pouch review: unassuming functionality

AppleInsider - January 12, 2023

“The Waterfield Essential iPhone Crossbody Pouch is for the tech-savvy minimalist — but it's also for those who want to roam the town in style.”

Rating: 4 out of 5


The Essential iPhone Pouch is ideal for an iPhone, iPhone Pro, or iPhone Pro Max or similar device and for carrying essentials like a wallet, keys, passport, and earbuds.


*Similarly-sized Android phones like Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy, etc. may also fit.



The three sizes of the  Essential Crossbody Collection each fit a different device you carry with you. The Crossbody for 11-inch iPad Pro fits Apple's 11-inch iPad and similarly-sized tablets, the Crossbody Pouch fits an iPad Mini and similarly-sized devices, and the smallest of them all, the Phone Pouch, fits the iPhone and other similarly-sized phones.




The Essentials Collection uses smart detailing, quality components, and rugged construction to achieve our “less is more” design philosophy. 


All Essential Bags are made from WaterField's custom ballistic nylon that's abrasion- and water-resistant. It withstands prolonged sun exposure so your bag will stay looking fresh and new, even years from now.  For a pop of color, we use our Forza textile which has a unique basketweave pattern. 




This line of lightweight bags with a streamlined design focus on each bag's functional essence. 


These multi-functional, everyday bags are available as a Duffel, Messenger Bag, Backpack, and a family of Crossbody bags for the 11-inch iPad Pro, iPad Mini, and iPhone.
