Since the TSA has doled out some new guidelines for checkpoint-friendly laptop bags, laptop bag manufacturers are busy coming up with models for frequent flyers, who abhor taking out their laptops at checkpoints.

Tom Bihn's Checkpoint Flyer meets all of the TSA guidelines while still looking stylish. The bag weighs 2.6 lbs and is made out of US 1050 denier ballistic nylon and 500 denier Cordura. It includes three pouches on the outside, splash-proof zippers, and ten smaller pockets.

The website claims that the Checkpoint Flyer briefcase takes less than three seconds to be ready to go through the x-ray machine.The interior of the bag is made out of high-density molded foam and offers protection for your laptop from all sides and all angles. It's made in the USA and it's available now in three colors for $220.
