“We’re not the first publication to fall in love with Tom Bihn’s Checkpoint Flyer briefcase. The costly laptop carrier is lightweight, well-thought-out, and extremely easy to use. Plus, it meets the TSA guidelines for bags that will let you zip through airport security without removing your laptop. Our greatest concern about the Checkpoint Flyer is its premium price; not every user can afford to spend $220 on a laptop bag. But like the best premium luggage, the bag’s modular design and sturdy construction make it a long-term investment. If you travel frequently and the cost is within your means, we recommend the Checkpoint Flyer.” - Excerpt from the CNET review of the Checkpoint Flyer by Michelle Thatcher.

“I love how easy it is to walk up to the x-ray machine, unclip the two large clips, lay out the bag, walk through the metal detector and fold up and clip the bag and walk away. The construction of the bag itself is excellent, the attention to details is amazing, I especially love the covered zippers which helps to keep water from seeping in when you are running through the pouring rain.”
