'Butterfly' laptop bag speeds checkpoint experience

updated 10:00 am EDT, Sun August 3, 2008

CODI ships Phantom CT3 bag

Laptop case-maker CODi has introduced the CODi Phantom - CT3, its new airport check-point-ready bag. The bag uses a butterfly design that separates the laptop from other items for a clear x-ray scan, allowing the laptop to remain in the bag for a faster checkpoint experience. The butterfly design also allows for a one-handed lift and seal of the bag (the split compartments come together and seal using Velcro attachments), leaving another hand free for any other scanned items. The Phantom CT3 is available now for $225.

    no need

    but they WILL require the laptop to be removed whether theres "no need" to or not.

    A complete waste...

    Seconding Mullum's posting and speaking from experience,
    here in the USA at least, TSA will make you remove the laptop from this bag (and any other) and put the laptop in a bin by itself.

    I don't know where they got this idea from but it's useless in the USA.

    Not exactly...

    The TSA has stated that they're going to let laptop bags that meet their guidelines (like the one above, most likely) go through without pulling the laptop out. It was announced at the beginning of last month and pretty heavily covered.

    they don't just confiscate it and keep it indefinitely.

    $225?

    Does this also hide weapons? I don't get why this is $225. Unless it has super powers I wouldn't pay 1/3 of this price. I think airport people will be more impressed by me showing off cash in my flagrant Steve Martin show off voice: "heya, I got myself two crisp 100 dollar bills."
