San Francisco, California - WaterField Designs announces the Air Duffel, a handsome and convenient travel bag that maximizes allowable airline personal item space so travelers can carry more gear on board and avoid checked-bag fees and lost luggage headaches. The feature-rich Air Duffel was designed in collaboration with over 1,200 customers and seasoned travelers with every detail conceived to maximize carry on space and to optimize air-travel convenience.
"We designed the Air Duffel for maximum capacity to help you avoid having to check luggage, and to look professional whether you're boarding business class or heading straight to a meeting after you land," explained Gary Waterfield, company founder. "The Air Duffel stands upright leaving room to stretch your legs, and it's soft enough to stuff into a crowded overhead bin. A separate TSA-friendly mobile office compartment keeps your MacBook safe inside a padded sleeve while you whisk through airport security."
The Air Duffel's TSA-friendly office compartment stores a MacBook, iPad, cords and more. It unzips to lie flat so the laptop can remain protected through airport security. A separate spacious main compartment holds clothing and personal gear. A myriad of intentionally-placed pockets grant access to critical items along the journey: to ID, iPhone, and passport during check-in; to MacBook Pro and accessories while waiting to board; and to water and in-flight comfort items at 35,000 feet. A premium leather flap seals a pleated front pocket, custom-sized for the optional Air Caddy"a pouch that fits into an airline seat-back pocket to keep an iPad, pens, snacks, and other in-flight essentials handy. A wheeled suitcase handle passthrough, two leather-lined handles, and a removable shoulder strap provide flexible carry options.
* Main compartment: opens with a half-moon zipper into arge chamber for clothing, headphones, toiletries, and other personal items. Two mesh zippered pockets on underside of flap keep small items organized and easy to spot; three open-topped pockets offer additional organization; a key fob makes finding keys a cinch.
* Office compartment: includes a padded laptop area that lies flat for easy TSA screening, a wide pocket backed by soft foam for papers and/or an iPad, two open-topped pockets for chargers and cords, three pen slots, and a central area for magazines, files, etc.
* Additional organization: arced zippers access two expandable end pockets that remain relatively flat by utilizing interior bag space when available; they are placed for quick access to travel documents, water bottles, and other frequently-used items from atop a wheeled suitcase or under an airline seat. Front pleated pocket with interior organizational pockets closes with premium leather flap secured by strong N35 rare-earth magnets.
* More thoughtful details: a gold liner lights up interior making contents easy to find. Four external D-rings for attaching to comfortable shoulder strap or with a carabiner to pouches and accessories. Three convenient carry options. Slim rear slots for quickly hooking glasses or pens.
Available in brown waxed canvas or black ballistic nylon, with a full-grain leather flap and details, the new Air Duffel airline personal item combines practicality, ease-of-access, and professional style to help ensure a streamlined, comfortable travel experience from departure to destination.
