TOM BIHN has introduced the Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Briefcase, a new "checkpoint friendly" briefcase-style laptop bag with a highly protective compartment for a laptop computer. You don't have to take your laptop out of the bag when going through the airport security check. Here is more info:
The Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Briefcase Bihn's answer to an intensive, five-month design challenge issued by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) to design a laptop bag that meets its newly implemented "checkpoint friendly" program guidelines. The Checkpoint Flyer provides the TSA with a clear, unobstructed x-ray view of the laptop in the bag without sacrificing organizational pockets and clean design.
Unique features of the Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Briefcase include:
* Handsome and tough U.S. made 1050 denier ballistic nylon, splash-proof YKK Uretek zippers, Duraflex Stealth buckles, and Poron foam-padded handles. * Made in USA in Tom Bihn's own Seattle factory. * Over 11 organizational pockets. * Back pocket zips open to accommodate the handle of a roll-aboard. * Quick-access boarding pass/map pocket. * Molded foam laptop compartment that completely encases the laptop in 8mm-thick closed cell foam, available in three sizes designed specifically to fit the 13″ MacBook and MacBook Air, 15.4″ MacBook Pro, and 17″ MacBook Pro. Also fits many PC laptops. * Requires less than 3 seconds to be prepared in order to send the briefcase through the x-ray machine. * Not designed simply for the security checkpoint process, the Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Briefcase works well as an everyday laptop bag.
The Checkpoint Flyer Laptop Briefcase is available for pre-order through the TOM BIHN Web site and ships by late September. It's priced at $220 USD. Available in three colors. You can find more info on: http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/TBP/TB1701
