The Checkthrough Executive Brief, Small (Black) from Skooba Design is a water repellent, ballistic nylon bag for popular 15/16" laptop models and select 17" models, designed with the seasoned traveler in mind. From the outside, it looks and functions like a high-end business case -- however, it's designed and rigorously tested to be "checkpoint-friendly," so you can run it through airport x-ray screening without removing your computer.
The Checkthrough bag opens and hinges in the middle to separate and isolate the laptop compartment from the rest of the bag. For initial, immediate visual reference, the laptop can be seen through a clear, quick-recognition window that is exposed when the bag is unfolded. The design of the laptop compartment is such that the X-ray image presented to the screen is the same as if the laptop were removed and placed in a bin.
This bag and all of its contents can be carried securely with or without the hinge zipped shut, so it can be readied in line, prior to screening. Once through, simply pick up the bag and go, zipping it back up on the go or at the gate. It also offers a divided folder/file section, cargo pockets for metal detector items and durable, and zippered clear pouch for allowable liquid ("3-1-1") bottles.
You'll find a grand total of 20 pockets, compartments and organizers, including an easy-access Doc-pocket for boarding pass and passport, pop-out/no-snag hideaway ID holder. With the included contoured and padded, no-twist strap, you can carry your belongings in comfort next time you travel. Skooba also backs the Checkthrough Executive Brief, Small with its impressive limited lifetime warranty.
