Tom Bihn's TSA Approved Checkpoint Flyer Briefcase
Not many people know that the TSA now approves of 3 types of bags for carrying and showing your laptop at the airport that you don't actually have to take it out. The Checkpoint Flyer Briefcase made by Tom Bihn just might be the best one.
It's a stylish 3 sectioned bag, of which one is a very special compartment for your laptop. The Checkpoint Flyer's laptop case is made of high-density thermo-molded foam and offers better protection from every angle than a regular padded sleeve. The case easily folds out from under the top flap to go through the x-ray at the airport, and just as easily folds back in. It's also removable and comes in 4 sizes to fit all Mac and most other laptops. The rest of the bag is U.S. made 1050 denier ballistic nylon, Japanese Dyneema rip-stop fabric, YKK splash-proof zippers, and Poron foam-padded handles.
The bag has more than 10 pockets, each with an O ring to clip on one of Tom Bihn's many organizational pouches, splash proof zippers and comes in 3 different color combinations. It is indeed the perfect carry-on/overnight bag.
The Checkpoint Flyer is available online for $220 which includes the optional sized laptop case.
