One of the biggest problems when traveling with laptops is that they typically have to be taken out of the bag and put through a TSA scanner. While this process can be time-consuming, it has been shown to cause delays in airport security lines. Fortunately, there’s a solution!
A specific type of laptop bag called a checkpoint-friendly laptop bag, allows travelers to keep their laptops in their bags during security screenings.
If your gear is packed properly, you won’t have to pull your laptop out when going through the security line at the airport. So, not only will you be able to avoid any damage caused by incorrectly packing your device, but you’ll also be saving your time.
If you’re looking to find the latest guidelines for what defines a checkpoint-friendly bag, you’ll want to visit the Transportations Security Administration website that shares that information. In addition, if you’re thinking about switching your travel bags to one that’s built to withstand and better for security, take a look at our top 10 TSA checkpoint-friendly laptop bags below.
