Tom Bihn Checkpoint bag

Tom Bihn Checkpoint bagManufacturer Tom Bihn has adapted the size of its laptop cases specifically for the new 15.4-inch MacBook Pro. ‘Cause as Brody would say, "You’re gonna need a bigger bag." However, if you already bought one, you don’t need to go to all that expense again.

 


"The laptop insert is removable and interchangeable with other sizes and when one buys a new laptop, they won’t need to buy an entirely new Checkpoint Flyer: just a new laptop insert sized to fit their new laptop," says a Tom Bihn announcement.

As we reported earlier, the Checkpoint Flyer Briefcase is the first airport security "checkpoint friendly" bag designed specifically for Mac laptops.

It’s made from 1,050 denier ballistic nylon, Japanese Dyneema rip-stop fabric, YKK splash-proof zippers, and Poron foam-padded handles, while the laptop insert protects the device from all sides with thermo-molded foam.

The Checkpoint Flyer will cost $220 (including laptop insert) when it ships in late November.
