WaterField Designs Launches Leather AirTag Keychain and Luggage Tag

WaterField Designs has launched a new Leather AirTag Keychain and an ‌AirTag‌ Luggage Tag for Apple's popular item tracker.

The ‌AirTag‌ Luggage Tag consists of two layers of bonded rugged leather that form a pocket in which the ‌AirTag‌ is secured. The Tag attaches with a strong 1.5 mm stainless steel wire that threads through a metal grommet, while perforated holes in a diamond pattern allow sound to travel from the ‌AirTag‌'s built-in speakers.

An included address card or a business card can be slid behind a clear window that's covered by a secure leather flap.

Meanwhile, offering something different to the typical polycarbonate ‌AirTag‌ holders, WaterField Design's more traditional-looking Keychain accessories house the ‌AirTag‌ within a layer of full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather, which protects the tracker while also concealing it from view.

Key Chain All Colors 1800x1800
The ‌AirTag‌ Keychain has nine small perforations in the raindrop-shaped leather pouch that allow ‌AirTag‌ sound alerts to pass through, and a heavy-duty matte black ring that can hold multiple keys. The accessory can be attached to items with a metal screw fastener.

A Matte black metal screw stud closes the pouch but allows access for battery replacement, and WaterField Design offers the Keychain with a choice of carabiner or 1.5mm stainless-steel cable, with a barrel closure, that threads through a metal grommet to attach to bags, belt hooks, and so on.

The Leather AirTag Keychain is available from May 28 for $25 in Acorn, Black, Blue, and Red, while the Leather AirTag Luggage Tag is available from June 9 for $49 in a Black exterior/Black interior, Blue/Black, Crimson/Black, and Grizzly Brown/Black.

Question, why hang an AirTag on the outside of your bag?
Use-case one, you lose your bag, the luggage tag might get snagged/ripped off.
Use-case two, your bag gets stolen, ‘oh there’s an AirTag, what should I do with it? ?’

Putting an AirTag in an inside pocket likely solves both issues, decreases the chances of a thief finding it/tossing it, and the tag getting snagged/pulled off. Unless your bag happens to be a faraday cage.
Just makes more sense to me.
Thoughts?

The luggage tag looks good, but whether it's worth $49 depends a lot on quality…
Waterfield is nothing but quality. I’ve owned their Muzetto bag for years and recently picked up a few of their gear pouches.

EDIT: looking at those four tags though, I’m surprised to see such a lack of attention to detail.

The amount of luggage tags that I've had go 'missing' - I'll keep the AirTag safely in the bag and save the $49 thanks.

For what it's worth, WaterField makes some really top-notch gear, all hand-made in San Francisco. I've had a number of bags/cases from them, over the years, and they've all been uniformly great (them and Tom Bihn are my go-to for bags).
