To help facilitate the flow of travelers passing through security checkpoints at airports and to better protect laptop computers in the process, the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has encouraged manufacturers to design bags that will produce a clear and unobstructed image of the laptop when undergoing X-ray screening. A design that meets this objective will enable TSA to allow laptops to remain in bags for screening. SWISSGEAR ScanSmart backpacks follow a clamshell design which enables the bag to be inspected easily as it lays flat on the conveyor belt. read more
TSA Friendly Backpacks
All of our TSA Friendly bags adhere to the following approved criteria:
- The laptop bag has a designated laptop-only section that you can lay flat on the X-ray belt.
- There are no metal snaps, zippers or buckles inside, underneath or on-top of the laptop-only section.
- There are no pockets on the inside or outside of the laptop-only section.
SWISSGEAR ScanSmart backpacks go well beyond TSA friendly technology. These bags also feature sturdy top handles, fully padded contoured pack straps, heavily padded back panels with dimensional knit fabric for better ventilation, side mesh water bottle pockets, organizer compartments and much more.
Whether for business or for pleasure, travel can often be a stressful experience for the seasoned road warrior or the occasional traveler. SWISSGEAR ScanSmart bags are intended to alleviate some of the inconveniences we are all faced with at airports and rail lines all over the world.
