I just received and unboxed the Travel Express-iPad. I am absolutely thrilled. I placed my iPad 2 with SmartCover, Apple wireless keyboard, cables, and charger into the Travel Express. I still have room for my iPhone, Bose earbuds, and probably something else. This case is very well designed and this includes high-quality construction. I would not hesitate to recommend this case to anyone who is looking for a case to carry their iPad and accessories in. OUtstanding customer service. I was kept informed throughout the process and received tracking information once the Travel Express was shipped. Response to any questions or comments was prompt and courteous. When I have a need for a case, I will contact WaterField Design first. Please feel free to use as a testimony for other customers.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! My two bags arrived Saturday. They are awesome!! They are so beautifully made. I'm so impressed with the large iPhone travel case. I originally purchased it to pack all my electronics gear when I travel but it's so good looking that I may pull it out and use it as a clutch purse! The iPad Travel Express is just perfect for toting my iPad II and keyboard back and forth to court. I'm going to be the envy of everyone in the courtroom when I walk in with that slim case! Thanks again for such quality products and such quick service!


As usual, your company continues to provide exemplary customer service. You keep your customers updated if items they've ordered are out of stock and then again when new stock has been received. You even make sure the customer still is interested in the original order. I do most of my purchasing on-line and WaterField Designs honestly has, by far, the best customer service of any and also provides an elegant, well-made product. I wish all companies and businesses were as caring and customer-oriented as WaterField.

Hey Gary, Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and your company, I ordered a Travel Express Bag for my new Macbook Air only last week the 6th March and I have already received this item, considering I live in Belfast I was very impressed at both the service I received and the quality and excellent design of the case itself. I just wanted to say Bravo, if only other companies were as efficient, I will definitely be keeping your company in mind for additional products in the future.

"Despite all its features, the Travel Express is relatively svelte though sturdy. And the case/bag has the usual top-notch stitching that Waterfield Designs is known for."

iPad Travel Express from WaterField Designs – Accessory Review

PadGadget - March 30, 2011

"What we liked: The iPad Travel Express screams quality. It's very lightweight, which makes it easy to carry around wherever you take your iPad, and allows you to all your accessories as well. It fits the first generation iPad and the iPad 2, with or without its Smart Cover. The case combines sleek design with great portability, and will fit in backpacks, bags and carry-on luggages."

"What we didn't like: Nothing!"
