“Again, no hassle at all using the Soft Cell at ATL yesterday. And I saw signs along the approach ropes that specifically described the new rules. I looked around a bit for other laptops, and didn’t see any though, bagged or otherwise.” – merlyn
“On trips from August 10 to August 17.
I did not have to take out either of my laptops housed in a Soft Cell or in a
Monolith (the ancestor of the Brain Cell that has no mesh pockets and is thus TSA compatible)
It was a blessing, as I was tired.
The airports were Baltimore, Birmingham, Dulles, Huntsville, Regan International
Airport (DC).” – backpack
“I had my laptop in a soft sided felted case going through Newark and Fort Lauderdale this past week. They didn’t say anything to me about having to take the computer out of the case. Seems like the TSA actually passed around the memo on this one.” – Tzporah
Excerpted from the Tom Bihn Forums thread heckpoint-friendly bags – Soft Cell is OK.
