You know what's cool? Not getting your goods felt up by the TSA. You know what's funky? Keeping your gear protected while going through airport security. You know who has you covered? Mobile Edge.
Matthew from Mobile Edge sent over a couple of their latest and greatest Checkpoint Friendly bags - a briefcase model and a backpack model. I've reviewed them both over on Squidoo.
From the briefcase review …
Black and sleek, this bag is function, function, function all the way. The front of the bag has four zippered pockets. There are two pockets shaped and sized for cords and power-bricks, and there is a large flat, zippered pocket for reading materials. The fourth pocket is a smaller zippered pocket for quick access. I'm stashing my airline ticket and identification in there.
The briefcase opens clamshell-style. One side has a built-in slot for my laptop, and the other has storage for documents and accessories. The laptop pocket is made to fit laptops with up to 16" screens. It easily fits my MacBook Pro, and it will definitely fit a PC as well. The elastic and Velcro strap firmly secured my laptop. The "Checkpoint Friendly" label on the pocket will remind TSA agents that bag is cool to go through the X-ray. It's ALL COOL, TSA.

From the backpack review ...
Remember the cartoon Inspector Gadget? Thanks to his genius niece Penny and her dog Brain, Inspector Gadget inadvertently foiled the plans of evil Dr. Claw and his M.A.D. agents every week. I was a little in love with Penny, of course - but I was always jealous of Gadget's spring-loaded shoes, helicopter hat and hand-phone. So when I opened the ScanFast Checkpoint Friendly Backpack 2.0 from Mobile Edge, I was immediately taken with its clever design and easy access to all of my geek gadgetry. It's like an Inspector Gadget backpack - for grown-ups.
