This is case is my everyday iPad carry. It has enough room and padding to handle my 12.9 Pro iPad along with the magic keyboard. The case is also big enough to handle the extra little stuff you end up grabbing on a daily basis. The quality of build and the quality of materials is amazing. I get complements almost daily.

Tech folio for my new iPad Pro 11inch

I feel the bag does not really fit the new iPad Pro 11” properly….. i also feel that the back of the bag is not padded enough, as that is the slot where the iPad is inserted. Otherwise I like the material, contruction and look.

Alston G. (Colorado, United States)
Great products and service!

I’ve been looking for the perfect work bag for years and finally found it at Waterfield. Very high quality, highly functional products. Perfect customer service.

Gregg (Colorado, United States)
Now every member of my family has a Tech Folio

My wife was the last to get one, but already she just LOVES it! She and I both use them much like a portfolio on steroids; holding iPads, business essentials, extra tech goodies, snacks (esp if we’re flying), and she packs her concealed. carry in there too. Great bag, SO versatile!!

Gordon G. (California, United States)
Excellent organizer

The first Waterfield products I bought were gear cases to hold my flash drives, adapters, and other odds and ends. As I got more and more adapters and dongles, the cases got more stuffed and I had to dig for what I needed. The Tech Folio has allowed me to consolidate the contents of two gear cases so they are easily accessible and visible. Another well designed Waterfield product.

Tech Folio Plus can be crammed full of tech gadgets — and look good while protecting ‘em

Apple World Today - September 27, 2018

“I use the Tech Folio Plus as an accessory to my laptop case. However, if you use an iPad Pro in lieu of a Mac laptop, the WaterField Design case may be the only one you need for your tech equipment.”

The Tech Folio Collection was developed as part of the Next Generation Gear Case community design project.



These cases are designed for organizing tech accessories in a compact case so you'll always have what you need when you need them. Save time and reduce stress by having the right adapter, cable, or SD card available at any critical time. This Collection is a result of the Next Generation Gear Case community design project. 


There are three sizes based on capacity and laptop size requirements. The smaller Tech Folio is ideal for those who carry a lot of gadgets, and fits an 11" tablet.  The middle-sized Tech Folio Plus is for the IT consultant or designated home expert who rely on having the right tools at hand to fix a variety of issues. It can fit laptops up to 13 inches. The larger capacity Tech Folio 16-inch holds more gear, and fits laptops up to 16 inches. The Tech Folios can also serve as a minimalist laptop bag.  


The small-capacity Tech Folio is ideal for gadgeteers who tend to carry along electronic gadgets. The mid-capacity Tech Folio Plus holds a lot more gear and works well for Pros and IT consultants who carry more tech with them. 


Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 



If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Tech Folio, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.


Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
