Pros Holds my entire business travel arsenal in perfect organization, takes one annoyance out of security. Have gotten great comments from every TSA screener who's seen it.
Cons None. For me, it's perfect. As for the price mentioned in the article, from my research this bag is as low as *half* the price of the only other bags that are truly comparable in capacity, quality, features, etc...
Summary I waited over a month to get a Checkthrough bag, and it was worth it. I just love it and actually had a slight grin on my face when I traveled this week. I have been a longtime fan of the company (www.skoobadesign.com) and once again they came out with a winner.
"Fantastic Bag"on by Seat21C
Pros Pretty much everything--it works as promised, looks good, well made.
Cons Lots of space in main section, might make me pack more than I would have... but I can live with that.
"Love this bag."on by my_john
Pros It's so easy to go through security with this bag.
Cons None really.
Summary The side of the bag that does not hold the laptop has plenty of room and compartments. This bag is well constructed. The weight will depend on how much you carry in this bag. I will gladly trade carrying a few extra ounces in order to zip through at the airports without having to take my laptop out. The ease of just grabbing the handle and zippering the bag is great. I tell everyone I see with a non checkpoint bag they need to order one ASAP.
Pros Well-designed, has worked perfectly 100% of the time at every TSA checkpoint so far
Cons Would like to see a rolling version some day (not really a "con," but I like rolling bags for when I really need to load up).
Summary Has definitely made frequent travel a little less annoying. For those considering it, there is a pretty good product video online at www.skoobadesign.com/skooba_video3.php
Pros It works, it's nice, company service great
Cons That someone had one before I did
Summary I saw someone using one of these in front of me at JFK, and was immediately jealous. I sat down and ordered one online 5 minutes later at the gate, it arrived 2 days later. I like everything about it. Now the person behind ME at security can get jealous.
