Or, you can carry Think Tank's Artificial Intelligence 15 or 17 laptop cases in the same pocket. The two clear organizer bags that come with the Logistics Manager will hold your ID and other small items including business cards stored in the built-in window.Inasmuch as you'll be traveling with so much gear, Think Tank provides you with front and rear cables and locks. The rear cable is built into the frame of the case. From its zippered pocket, it is used to attach the case to any immovable object to prevent someone from walking away with the entire case. It includes a small TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approved lock but any lock can be employed. The main case is sealed with a three-digit combination lock and cable.
Think Tank provides a security plate on the case that contains a unique number. Once this number is registered with Think Tank, should the bag become lost, you'll stand a chance of recovering it when someone calls to report it.
The case is carried on its dual wheels and retractable handle. The handle has been designed so that the case is farther away from your body so as not to trip over it while walking. The case has been designed to take everything into consideration including the zippers that store in their own sliders that will prevent them from scratching your gear.
