Best Mavic Air Bags, Cases & Backpacks

Now you have a new Mavic Air it’s time to invest in the perfect case, bag or pack to help protect and transport it.

Because the Mavic Air is reasonably new, there are not as many options as the Mavic Pro, yet, but there are still quite a few.

Below is my the best of what I could find online at the time of writing. More to come as the range expands!

Note: Although some of the images show Mavic Pros, these cases and bags will fit the Mavic Air. Especially the Lowepro, as they have a flexible packing system that can fit almost anything!

    Lowepro Droneguard Bags

    Lowepro DroneGuard BP 200 - A lightweight drone backpack for DJI Mavic Pro/Mavic Pro Platinum with space for 2L hydration reservoir

    Lowepro is always leading the pack when it comes to bags for photography gear. So, it is no surprise that they now have a dedicated range for drones called Droneguard.

    This is a series of bags, cases, and backpacks that use Lowepro’s flexible packing system, so are very handy for fitting things in. Basically, it is a series of padded walls that have velcro on the ends, so you can adjust and move as you see fit. That means you can adapt to your needs, change what you carry, and fit things in as snug or loose as you like.

    I have the CS series for both my Mavic Pro and my GoPros, and can also use them for other things.

    There are loads of these bags, and you can explore them all here.

    For the moment they do not have a specific Mavic Air case (the exact length of the drone) but when I bought mine for the Mavic Pro, they didn’t either. It does not matter. You can adjust it all perfectly.

    The cases come with

    • Various sizes & configs (cases, packs, etc)
    • Padded adjustable walls and dividers
    • A lid to store cables and spare blades
    • Further zippers for SD cards and the like

    You can see a lot of that in the images I have displayed here, but you have to explore the exact model you want.

    For example, you can buy a simple case like the CS150 and throw it in any pack, or you can buy a dedicated bag. Or a backpack that specifically fits the CS cases, with a hole to slide if in (see image). It’s all possible!

    Here are some suggestions:

    Pros

    • Fully adjustable interior dividers for just about anything you need
    • Lots of options in terms of sizes and bag styles (cases, packs)
    • Super high quality from an experienced manufacturer
    • Space for just about every accessory you need for a drone

    Cons

    • Probably the most expensive option (but you pay for what you get)
    • No shoulder bag option

    Polar Pro Minimalist Case

    PolarPro Minimalist Case for DJI Mavic Air

    Polar Pro is another team of experienced drone gear producers, so it’s no surprise to see they are one of the few with a dedicated Mavic Air case at this early stage of the drone’s life.

    This is a simple padded softshell case that is custom shaped to fit all the Mavic Air gear, such as:

    • Drone & Controller
    • 3 x Mavic Pro battery
    • Mavic Pro charger
    • Hip strap that is able to be hidden away
    • Some of the reviewers on Amazon claim this case is not that great, but I am surprised given Polarpros reputation. These same reviewers think the DJI case is a better bet in this case.

    Note: The dedicated DJI Mavic Airbag is not currently available separately.

    Pros

    • Super compact and perfect fitting
    • Can squeeze in everything you need for a lot of flying
    • Light but still protects everything

    Cons

    • Quite cramped and not flexible like the Lowepros above
    • Some reviewer complaints it is not an ideal fit for the drone

    Product Information

    • Size: 7.7 x 4.9 x 8.7 inches
    • Weight: 10.9 oz / 53 g

    Navitech Mavic Air Case

    Navitech Black Waterproof Shockproof Drone Case Compatible with The DJI Mavic Air Drone

    Another simple carry case to help protect the drone and remote.

    This one is not as custom in terms of streamlined shape, but should still be adequate for the drone, controller, and either batteries or charger (not both).

    At about the same price as the Polarpro, I would choose that over this lesser-known brand with a slightly less optimized case.

    Pros

    • Simple and adequate for a day out with your drone

    Cons

    • Not enough space for everything you might need.
    • Not a well known brand

    Product Information

    • No specs available

    Mavic Air Fly More Combo Backpack

    TOMAT Mini 2 Carrying Case, Portable Shoulder Bag Traveling Case for DJI Mavic Mini 2 Fly More Combo Accessories

    What I like about this backpack/case combo are two things.

    • It can fit in everything you need for a great day out with your Mavic Air
    • It doubles as a case and a backpack

    It fits everything from

    • Drone & Controller
    • Cables and charger
    • 3 Batteries
    • Spare blades and a few more things
    • It was originally designed for the Mavic Pro, but it should be good to go (according to the manufacturer) for the Air too.

    It also doubles as a (maybe not super comfy) backpack as you can see in the image.

    So, you can carry it by the top handle, throw it over your shoulder or use it as a back. And given the drone and all the gear does not weigh a tonne, it should be good enough for small hikes to your shooting destination!

    Pros

    • Fits in all your drone gear
    • Well protected with hard foam and case, also velcro straps to hold down gear
    • Doubles as bag and pack

    Cons

    • Not specific for the Mavic Air
    • I still think the Lowepro Droneguard or BP series is a better bet (but this is cheaper)

    Product Information

    • Size: 9.5 x 15.75 x 5 inches (24 x 12.5 x 40cm)
    • Weight: 3.5 pounds / 1.6kg

    Casematix Waterproof Case

    Casematix Waterproof Case Compatible with DJI Mavic Air Drone and Accessories Fits Mavic Air Controller and Three Mavic Air Batteries

    If you are after some serious protection for your Mavic Air, this last choice might just be the ticket.

    A hardshell case with custom molded hard foam to help protect everything you might need on a drone adventure.

    The Drone, Controller, and 3 batteries can all fit super snug and there should be no issue with damage, even if you roll your car (at least that is what I think :>)

    This even appears to be reasonably light at 1 lb, more than the case above (which is weird, but maybe the above specs are wrong).

    Pros

    • Almost the best protected you can get for your Mavic Air (right now)
    • Fits everything (bar the charger) for a great day out
    • Quite light considering it's a hard case

    Cons

    • No space for charger and accessories (you could carry separately of course)

    Product Information

    • Dimension: 10.5 x 8 x 4.5 inches
    • Weight: 1 lb / 0.54 kg

    Which Mavic Air Case Should You Buy?

    What can I say? I am a huge fan of the Lowepro backpacks and cases, having owned a few. So for me, they are the ultimate drone case for any DJI drone. Check out the range of Droneguard or BP backpacks from them, and you won’t be disappointed.

    For a simple case that fits everything, is lightweight, and protects it all adequately, I don’t think you can go past the Polarpro Softcase.

    For those wanting the ultimate protection, despite the cumbersome nature of the case, this hard case is the way to go for sure!
