TSA approved laptop bag

Tom Bihn has announced the Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Briefcase. This bag was designed around the TSA's new "checkpoint-friendly" program guidelines and allow laptops to pass through the x-ray scanner without being removed from the case if it conforms to one of several designs. Three sizes are available that are specifically fit for Apple laptops but are also suitable for many others. Shipping will begin by late September.

The Checkpoint Flyer features 1050 ballistic nylon construction, YKK Uretek zippers, Duraflex buckles, and Poron foam padded handles. Over 11 organizational pockets are included and a back pocket that zips open to fit the handle of a roll-aboard. The laptop is surrounded by 8mm thick molded closed-cell foam, sized for the 13-inch, 15.4-inch, or 17-inch screen MacBooks. Tom Bihn claims less than 3 seconds is required to ready the bag for x-ray scanning. The Checkpoint Flyer will be available from Tom Bihn for $220.
