Skooba Checkthrough Rolling Laptop Case

The patent-pending Skooba checkthrough rolling laptop case looks and functions like a high-end business case, but is designed and rigorously-tested to be "checkpoint-friendly," so you can run it through airport x-ray screening without removing your computer. This is a great product for any frequent traveler!

Last year I was in a different airport 46 weeks that year and this product wouldn't work. Every airport makes you put your laptop and any other large electronic items in their own X-Ray bin. I was at one airport and they made me take my Eee PC out of it's sleeve.

Well, like we said in the article, the laws have changed as of this past summer, but each airport - and each terminal interprets the rules a bit differently. One of the reasons we talked to the TSA agents in L.A. was to actually figure out what the policy is and how it is supposed to be enacted. I think as you see more and more of these "Checkthrough" bags coming to market, the TSA agents will be more familiar with how to handle electronics that are put in these bags.

I have to tell you, I haven't been asked to turn on my computer for more than 10 years...that is very unusual.

did you have it in a checkthrough bag? I've flown nearly a million miles over the past 5-7 years and have never been asked to turn my laptop on at any airport in the world and I've been to every continent except Antarctica, so that is strange.

oh well yeah I have to do that too... This laptop bag is special and certified to just go through the scanner with the laptop in it.

TSA has been recently trained to understand this and they look for the logo on the front of the bag.

If you don't take your laptop out of a non-checkthrough bag, you will certainly garner a LOT of attention. The first thing they will do is stop the belt, take your bag back to the front and ask you to remove it.....after that, if they feel like it, they can put you through the ringer for not following instructions. I've seen where people get to visit the "back room" since they get a bit of an attitude or get loud with the agents.

These checkpoint friendly features are terrific for frequent travelers. I love rolling cases from Briggs & Riley because they offer some really great functional features, in addition to being checkpoint friendly. I have a Span Expandable Rolling Brief from Briggs & Riley. It’s got three separate sections – an organizer, the computer section and an expandable fan file. I can collapse the fan file section to maximize packing capacity. One of the unique features of Briggs & Riley luggage and business cases is the Outsider handle system. The bars are on the outside leaving a flat surface on the inside for easier and more spacious packing.
