The issue with the 2018 Air for use outdoors is the limited display brightness... the advantage of the MacBook Pro is a much brighter display. The non-Touchbar MBP is only $100 more than the 2018 Air.

Yeah it is a bit of a dark display with the Air 2018 brightness but you can always increase the brightness on the device which definitely helps.
