I am a huge Tom Bihn fan. This is a company that listens to its customers and makes some great products. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
If you’re not familiar with the Checkpoint Flyer Briefcase, watch the video embedded here. It is the first airport security “checkpoint friendly” bag designed specifically for Mac laptops.
The Brain Cell is a laptop sleeve designed to be used alone or clipped securely inside a variety of Tom Bihn bags. Brain Cell compatibility in a Tom Bihn bag means that you will not just have your laptop held securely during transit, it also means if you buy a new laptop of a different size, you need only update the Brain Cell to make it fit in your bag!
The Checkpoint Flyer sells for USD$220 USD (including laptop insert). The Brain Cell (Size 4Z) sells for USD$60. Both are available for pre-order from the Tom Bihn website and ship by late November.
