WaterField unveils Crowdsourced Apple AirTag Cases

San Francisco’s WaterField Designs has unveiled the full-grain Leather AirTag Keychain and AirTag Luggage Tag, Apple AirTag accessories that protect the trackers from scratches and hide them from potential thieves. Decorative perforations in the leather cases allow sound from the built-in AirTag speakers to travel.

“What really sets these AirTag 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 company owner, Gary Waterfield, in a press release.

Designed with input from over 1200+ customers, the US$25 Leather AirTag Keychain and AirTag Luggage Tag attach with an included carabiner or stainless-steel cable to bags, belt hooks, luggage, or any item frequently misplaced. They’re available in a range of colors.

The AirTag Keychain is crafted from two pieces of full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather. The petal-shaped pouch keeps an AirTag (not included, of course) hidden from view and holds it in place, while nine small holes in the shape of a diamond allow users to hear the AirTag when they activate the speakers. A matte black metal screw stud fastener keeps the AirTag pouch firmly closed but allows access for yearly battery changes.

The $49 WaterField AirTag Luggage Tag is made from two layers of full-grain leather bonded together. The Tag attaches with a 1.5 mm stainless steel wire that threads through a metal grommet. An included address card or a business card slides behind a clear window covered by a secure leather flap that keeps ID information private. The AirTag rests in a custom-fit pocket, and perforated leather in an attractive diamond pattern allows sound to travel from the AirTag’s built-in speakers.
