FEATURE: 06.02.21 – The perfect solution for attaching an AirTag to keys or luggage is finally here.
WaterField Designs — a San Francisco, California-based company which manufactures custom-fitted cases and bags for notebook computers, smartphones, tablets, and other digital devices — has designed two new accessories, a keychain and luggage tag, created exclusively for use with Apple’s AirTags. Made from a premium full-grain Leather, each accessory easily attaches to keys and suitcases with either an included carabiner or cable, respectively.
However, the innovative feature of these accessories are decorative diamond-shaped perforations which allow the sound from an AirTag (product not included) to still be audible in the event a set of keys or suitcases attached to either a keychain or luggage tag, respectively, is lost or misplaced.

Sophisticated Yet Stylish
Available in a range of colors, these sophisticated and stylish accessories can either be matched to bags (e.g., WaterField’s executive leather messenger for Apple’s MacBook) and suitcases or used in contrasting color combinations to help users easily find a set of keys in a cluttered bag or quickly identify a suitcase in a sea of lookalike luggage:
- WaterField’s leather keychain for Apple’s AirTags– this accessory, which retails for $25, is crafted from a sturdy vegetable-tanned leather and is available in acorn, black, blue, or red
- WaterField’s leather luggage tag for Apple’s AirTags– this accessory, which retails for $49, is made of a dual layer chrome-tanned leather with a black interior and an exterior available in black, blue, crimson, or grizzly brown
In addition, the keychain features a petal-shaped pouch attached to a Heavy duty metal key ring which can accommodate multiple keys. Likewise, the luggage tag features a rectangular-shaped pouch with a clear window that holds an included address card covered by a secure flap that stays closed with a screw, keeping a user’s info private until it needs to be accessed, a feature which, per the company, addresses concerns from users of similar tags sold by other manufacturers whose products revealed people’s personal information.
Sumptuous & Secure
Primarily designed to prevent scratches on the device, a custom fit pocket on each accessory doubles as a theft deterrent, making it the perfect solution for protecting and storing an AirTag while keeping it permanently attached to a set of keys or luggage, respectively.
“What really sets these accessories apart is that the trackers are protected behind a layer of sumptuous leather from the scratches so many AirTag users have already complained about. And, they are hidden, so someone looking to steal a bag or suitcase won’t notice that they contain an AirTag and will be less likely to remove them,” said Gary Waterfield, owner of WaterField Designs.
AirTags are securely held in place inside the custom fit pocket on each respective accessory by a metal screw and stud fastener which keeps the tracker completely hidden and out of sight while still allowing users to access the device when necessary (e.g., annual battery replacements).
Made Locally In S.F.
Established in 1998 for tech savvy consumers who want to responsibly transport their technology in style, all products created by WaterField Designs are made locally in San Francisco, manufactured to exacting standards in the company’s workshop, and produced in small quantities at a time.
According to the company, the keychain and luggage tag were crowd-sourced and designed with input from over 1200 of its customers. Additionally, these accessories are an example of a long-standing tradition which began back in 2001 when it started designing cases and bags created exclusively for Apple products and accessories..
WaterField’s leather keychain and luggage tag for Apple’s AirTags are each sold separately and can be purchased directly from WaterField Designs by visiting the company’s website at: www.sfbags.com.
