  • This is the Men's version of the Mobile Edge ScanFast backpack, $99.00 which is constructed of 1680 denier ballistic nylon. Mobile Edge is one of several companies now producing airport-security friendly travel bags which now permit you to keep your laptop computer in the bag during the TSA screening process.

  • Here's the bottom front pocket. One thing I really like about this bag is that the pockets are really well-designed and you can shove a ton of stuff into them. Here I have my teas and Diet Snapple packets along with my GPS, digital camera and charging cords and meds/dietary supplements stowed away. The bottom pocket is big enough to hold a full-sized magazine or hardcover book with lots of room to spare, it's where I shove most of my important gadgets. The interior has a fishnet zippered lining for stowing away small objects that might otherwise get loose or would be difficult to dig around and find.

  • The Front Center pocket has about half of the storage space of the Front Bottom conpartment. This has a ton of room for several cellphones/smartphones, ipods, smaller chargers, a thick wallet and several other items.

    No real big deal on the design of the bag. All standard stuff to me. I'd like to see if they could design belt bags for netbooks. I found a regular belt bag from North Face that could fit my Asus EEEPC 1000H and accessories.
