November 3, 2011 in Bags and Cases
[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington, USA - TOM BIHN, a designer, manufacturer, and retailer of laptop and travel bags has introduced for pre-order the Cadet, a laptop briefcase designed specifically to fit Apple laptops and the iPad and iPad 2.
The Cadet is available is two sizes: 15/13 and 11/iPad. Both sizes feature a removable protective laptop sleeve (called the Cadet Cache) in sizes designed specifically to fit Apple laptops and the iPad: the 15/13 size fits both the 15" and 13" MacBook Pro, the 13" MacBook, and the 13" MacBook Air, while the 11/iPad size fits the 11" MacBook Air and the iPad/iPad 2. In addition to a laptop, the Cadet can also fit an iPad or iPad 2 with or without a protective case or sleeve.
The Cadet is designed to carry your laptop or iPad, a few files or magazines, power supplies, pens, notebooks, and other small accessories.
The Cadet is a checkpoint friendly laptop bag: using two clips, the botton edge of the Cadet Cache attaches to two vertical pieces of webbing sewn into the Cadet. When passing through a TSA checkpoint, one can slide their laptop/iPad (still in its protective Cadet Cache) out of the Cadet for X-ray inspection; the laptop remains protected and attached to the Cadet.
