Image Gallery: Skooba Checkthrough Brief checkpoint friendly laptop bag

Traveling with a laptop can be a bit of a pain when you are trying to get through security and need to remove your laptop and trust it to the TSA officials as it moves through the x-ray machines. With checkpoint friendly bags like the Skooba Checkthrough Brief you can leave your laptop securely in position adjacent to all your other gear and rest easy that no one has to handle your laptop. Every test that I conducted in real trips through security have been successful with the Skooba Checkthrough bag and I recommend this outstanding quality case.

The bag unzips into two compartments that then can be laid flat to pass through the x-ray machine. The two pieces are connected at the bottom with solid material.

My 15 inch MacBook Pro fits nicely into the laptop compartment. The laptop compartment has a clear plastic side so that TSA officials can see what is inside.

I found the back strap to be very useful for connecting the Skooba Checkpoint to my rolling carry one with the telescoping handle. The Skooba Checkpoint slides right over the handle.

In addition to the large laptop compartment there is another area where you can pack lots of gear. I packed in all my accessories and Kindle here.
