Accessories: Tom Bihn debuts Cadet for notebooks, iPad

updated 09:00 pm EDT, Thu November 3, 2011

Checkpoint-friendly designed for Apple stuff

The Cadet is a new luxury briefcase available from accessory maker Tom Bihn in two sizes, designed for Apple notebooks and tablets (though it is compatible with similar-sized models from other brands) that has room for extra supplies and small accessories. It is checkpoint-friendly and features an external iPhone pocket, a lifetime guarantee, and top-quality materials for mobile device owners. The company has been producing bags for computers for 30 years.

The Cadet comes in two sizes: one designed for 15- and 13-inch laptops such as the MacBook Pro, and a model aimed at 11-inch devices like the MacBook Air or the iPad. The briefcase style allows room for power supplies, and features two small clips that attached two pieces of webbing to the case, allowing users to slide their devices out of the briefcase for X-ray inspection without forsaking the protection or attachment to the Cadet.

The case features an exterior made of 1050d U.S. ballistic nylon, with an interior lining of light Japanese Dyneema nylon. The iPhone pocket is protected with an Ultrasuede lining, and the case is sealed using YKK Uretek zippers. It offers three exterior-access pockets, six interior organizing pockets and is entirely made in the US at the company's factory in Seattle.

The Cadet sells for $170 and includes a standard shoulder strap. It is available for pre-order now, expecting to ship in two weeks. Color schemes available include black/steel, black/iberian, steel/solar, forest/steel, navy/solar and cardinal/steel.
