October 29, 2008 in Cases and Bags
[prMac.com] Seattle, WA - TOM BIHN, a designer, manufacturer, and retailer of laptop bags, backpacks, travel bags, and briefcases, has introduced sizes of their Checkpoint Flyer "checkpoint friendly" laptop briefcase and Brain Cell laptop case specifically for the new 15.4" MacBook Pro.
The Checkpoint Flyer
The Checkpoint Flyer Briefcase is the first airport security "checkpoint friendly" bag designed specifically for Mac laptops. Available in custom sizes for all Mac laptops, the Checkpoint Flyer's laptop insert is removable and interchangeable with other sizes. When one buys a new laptop, they won't need to buy an entirely new Checkpoint Flyer: just a new laptop insert sized to fit their new laptop.
The Checkpoint Flyer is made out of the high-quality materials TOM BIHN is known for: U.S. made 1050 denier ballistic nylon, Japanese Dyneema rip-stop fabric, YKK splash-proof zippers, and Poron foam-padded handles. The laptop insert of the Checkpoint Flyer protects the laptop from all sides with thermo-molded foam.
The Checkpoint Flyer is $220 USD (including laptop insert). Available for pre-order from the TOM BIHN website; ships by late November. Made in Seattle.
The Brain Cell
TOM BIHN customers have been using the Brain Cell laptop case to protect their Mac laptops everywhere from Iraq to Antarctica for over 10 years, giving the Brain Cell its word-of-mouth reputation as providing some of the best protection one can get for their laptop. Now the Brain Cell is available in a size specifically designed to carry the New 15.4" MacBook Pro: Size 4Z.
The Brain Cell is designed to clip securely inside a variety of TOM BIHN messenger bags, briefcases, and backpacks - including the Empire Builder, Super Ego, Brain Bag, and Western Flyer.
Among the protective materials that make the Brain Cell are 8mm thick soft foam padding, 4mm hard corrugated plastic, cross-linked closed-cell polyethylene foam, and 12mm thick premium memory foam.
The Brain Cell Size 4Z is $60 USD. Available for pre-order from the TOM BIHN website; ships by late November. Available in two formats: Horizontal for use in messenger bags or briefcases and Vertical for use in backpacks. Made in Seattle.
