TSA Ready Laptop bag suggestions?

Anyone have any suggestions on a great TSA ready Laptop bag for a 15" laptop?

Any suggestions would be great. TIA

Check out Swiss Gear. They make a lot of checkpoint friendly bags. I got my father one of their checkpoint friendly laptop backpacks. It fits his 15" laptop, and has a spot for an ipad. He loves it.

Tumis look the best, but still are kind of dorky looking. They will fit you well

Stop being lazy and pull your laptop out

Ok, went out shopping, looked at all the top brands.

TUMI was not the best, Briggs-Riley was much nicer. The TUMI looked better, but the Briggs-Riley was made better.

Anyhow, picked up the Briggs-Riley.

For leather, Kenneth Cole and Passport2 had the nicest ones.

The Victorinox, Ogie, Passport2 and others in ballistic nylon were all too heavy, and big.

What's a TSA ready bag? My leather Kenneth Cole leather laptop bag did just fine. About to take off for Dallas.

I was thinking the same thing...I travel a lot and my regular JanSport backpack does the exact same thing as my Tumi in regards to TSA...it lets me take my laptop out

What are you looking for in terms of TSA ready?

It allows you to NOT have to take the laptop out.

Is it honestly that hard to unzip the bag and pull the laptop out?

This seems more like a marketing scam more than anything else

In essence, it unzips in the middle and folds out as a clam shell. One side has the laptop in it, for unobstructed X-ray viewing. All of the other crap, is in the other side. NOTHING comes out of the bag, and it is easier to through security MULTIPLE times per day.

For those of you that travel infrequently, it falls in the who cares category. For those of you that travel daily, or even sometimes more than one city per day, it is worth buying. Of course, for me, my laptop bag split a couple of seams, so I needed a new one anyway. They are the same price with or without "Checkpoint Friendly" capability.

Anyhow, thanks folks.
