In the past few years, I’ve been flying a lot more than I used to. I think I speak for everyone when I say that the TSA’s screening process is a big pain in the ass. You’ve got to take off your shoes and leave your laptop out of a bag unless it’s in a bag that doesn’t obstruct the X-ray machine’s view. Tom Bihn’s Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Bag fixes all that. It’s a solid messenger bag with plenty of storage and it features a detachable part just for your notebook, which will get you on your flight a lot faster.
At $220, it’s a little expensive but could be worth it for the frequent traveler. Click through for a huge, elaborate review of the bag.
