Skooba Adds Checkthrough Messenger

Skooba Design has announced the addition of a slim Messenger version of its original Checkthrough™ “checkpoint friendly” laptop bag. Checkthrough bags are specially designed and tested to pass through airport security x-ray screening without having to remove the computer. According to the company, the original Checkthrough bag—developed in close coordination with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)—has quickly become the best-selling product in Skooba’s 10-year history. The company has multiple patents pending on both current and future Checkthrough products, with a long list of new bags in development. The new Checkthrough Messenger is the first of the new styles added to the Checkthrough collection, designed in response to customer requests for a slim, “flap-over” style version of the original.  Skooba also offers a broad range of laptop skins, which can be carried alone or inside another bag, and are also checkpoint-friendly when used on their own.

The new Checkthrough Messenger is available now, at a suggested retail price of $129.95. Skooba Design has set up a special section of its website at for travelers to get more information on the checkpoint friendly program, as well as sign up to receive product updates.
