MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Air Duffel Carry-On Bag for Mac From WaterField Designs

Friday February 14, 2020 10:04 AM PST by Juli Clover

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with WaterField Designs to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a pocket-laden Air Duffel Carry-On Bag for carrying your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and other related accessories.


WaterField Designs created the Air Duffel as the perfect bag to use for air travel. It was designed in collaboration with more than 1,200 WaterField Designs customers and seasoned travelers with the aim of optimizing for space and convenience.


Priced starting at $399, the Air Duffel is available in brown waxed canvas or black ballistic nylon with a full-grain leather flap and detailing.


The Air Duffel is equipped with a padded laptop compartment that can fit Mac notebooks ranging in size from the 12-inch MacBook to the 16-inch MacBook Pro, plus there's a main compartment that was designed for maximum carry-on capacity.


The main compartment can hold one to two days of clothing, headphones, toiletries, and other items. Two mesh pockets inside the compartment are available for organizing small items, a key fob makes it easy to keep track of keys, and three open-top pockets offer up additional organizational space.


The laptop compartment also includes a wide pocket with soft foam for papers or a tablet, two open-top pockets for chargers and cords, three pen slots, and a central slot for files or magazines. A front pocket has interior organizational pockets secured with a leather flap equipped with magnets.


At the sides, there are two arced zippers for the expandable end pockets. The end pockets are designed to remain flat to utilize interior bag space when available and are positioned for quick access to travel documents, a water bottle, and other necessities when the bag is positioned under a seat or on top of luggage.


Inside, a gold liner makes it easy to find what you're looking for, and there are four D-rings for attaching a comfortable shoulder strap or a carabiner to hold pouches and accessories. It can also be fitted over the handle of a suitcase.


WaterField Designs also sells an optional Air Caddy, which is custom fitted for the front pocket of the Air Duffel and is sized to fit devices like the iPad Pro. The Air Duffel measures in at 10.25 x 16 x 8.25 inches and is sized to fit perfectly under an airplane seat.

So, the contest goes from the 14th to the 21st, but the winner will be chosen on the 14th? Unless that’s a typo, it sucks for those we don’t see it today.

Yes, it's a typo. I've fixed it.
