WaterField Transit Travel Case | Keep Your Essentials Organized & Accessible


Hey, it’s Ernest from Trip Astute. In this video, we’re doing a gear review
on the WaterField Transit Travel Case, a versatile case to keep your important travel items closeby
when traveling, whether it’s on a plane or in your car. (light chiming music) As you all know, I love travel bags and cases. Basically, anything that helps me organize
my stuff while traveling always seems to interest me, especially since I’ll often use it in
my daily life too. I think it’s like packing cubes … once
you start using them, you realize the benefits of keeping everything organized and in place. Such in the case with today’s gear review
of the WaterField Transit Travel Case. Before we get started, if you’re new here,
I want to welcome you to our channel. Trip Astute is a travel channel that is focused
on sharing ways to make travel easier, affordable, and more enjoyable. Traveling can be stressful and expensive,
so we’re looking for ways to help you maximize your experience through travel tips, points
and miles, and innovative gear. If that sounds interesting to you, please
consider subscribing. You all know that I am big fan of WaterField
Designs. They produce some very high-quality gear,
and I’ve purchased several of their bags, wallets, and pouches over the years. The reason I keep coming back to them is that
their stuff is very high-quality. Though their bags and pouches are pricey,
there is obviously a lot of design and thought that goes into their products, and their customer
service is top notch. On top of that, all their bags are manufactured
in the US, which is very rare nowadays. WaterField markets this case for those looking
to organize the glove compartment of their car. Even though I’m not a car guy, I can totally
relate to this situation. The last time I got pulled over by the police,
it took me a few minutes to find my car registration among everything else in my glove compartment. While my car is pretty clean, I am definitely
guilty of having a messy and disorganized glove compartment. Oddly enough though, I don’t actually use
the Transit Travel case for my car. If you watched my last video, I described
packing an emergency kit that I use when renting a car. This is my go-to emergency rental car case. But it’s also my in-flight case where I
keep all the things I want to have close by in my seat pocket. It’s a versatile, rugged, and quality case
that can be used for a variety of situations and purposes. To start off, let’s run through the features
of the case. Number 1. Ballistic nylon exterior: As with other WaterField
products, the case is made from a 10-50 Denier Ballistic nylon that is very heavy duty and
durable. All my WaterField products use this material,
and it’s never failed me. You can also get the case in a waxed canvas
material if you prefer a more classic and aged look. Number 2. Splash-proof zipper: Like I mentioned earlier,
WaterField doesn’t skimp when it comes to materials. On most of their wallets and bags, they use
a splash-proof zipper that provides some water resistance. It’s probably more than you’ll ever need
when using this case, but it’s nice to know that your contents have a bit more protection
in the event that you get stuck in a rainstorm, which has happened many times to me when traveling. Number 3. Full-grain leather cover: The front cover
is made from premium full-grain leather, which is should age very nicely. Again, WaterField uses full-grain rather than
top-grain or genuine leather since it’s much higher quality. You can see on my Staad backpack the the full-grain
leather has developed a beautiful patina, which is characteristic of high quality leather. Also, the cover has a hidden magnetic closure
which makes it easy to open and close, but firm enough that it won’t just open on it’s
own. Number 4. Pen slot: The case has a leather pen slot
under you the leather cover. Those of you that watch my videos know that
I recommend carrying a pen whenever you travel. Even though most of our everyday notes may
be captured digitally, there are a lot of instances when traveling where you still need
to fill out forms or sign documents with a pen. Having one on you, especially when you need
to fill out those customs forms, can save you a lot of time and headache. Number 5. Variety of pockets: Speaking of those customs
forms, the case has a ton of places where you can store them. There a large pocket on the backside, large
pockets on the front side under the cover, as well as three card slots. The enclosed area has two deep pockets and
two shallow pockets. You can also fit a larger item like an e-reader
or small tablet, or even two pairs of glasses. The inside of the enclosed area has a gold
nylon lining which makes it easy to see items inside, which comes in handy when you’re
in a dark place, like a plane. Number 6. Optional carabiner or wrist loop: Since the
case has a loop in the upper left corner, you can get a wrist loop if you want to carry
the case around without losing it. I personally prefer to keep the case inside
other bags when traveling, but I can see how you could use it as an everyday carry pouch. The Transit Travel case measure 11 inches
in length, 6 and three quarters inches in height, and about 1.3 inches in width. It was designed to fit in most glove compartments. You can get the WaterField Transit Travel
Case from WaterField Design’s website, which is sfbags.com. The case costs $100, so it’s definitely
pricey. I know some people are going to be turned
off by the price, but keep in mind that the quality is outstanding. The case is very versatile and can be used
for so many needs when traveling. If I’m renting a car or taking a road trip,
I fill it with all the things that I want to carry with me inside the vehicle. For car rentals, I treat it as my emergency
kit in case something goes wrong. And for flights, I find that it keeps everything
that I need organized while still fitting in the seat pocket. It’s like my packing cube for all my essential
in-flight items, and I can just stuff back into my bigger big when moving around. I even use it during my normal life if I just
need a case to carry a few items with me like my laptop charger, business cards, cable adapters,
and small notebook. It’s something that I use when I don’t
want to carry a bag with me, but don’t want to stuff my pockets either. Have you tried the Transit Travel Case? Do you struggle with keeping everything organized,
especially when flying or renting a car? Please let us know in the comment section
