    Selecting a new computer bag for daily and travel

    I have been using the original Ristretto with my MacBook Air for daily and travel (2008). It is sometimes just too small. (so is the MacBook Air) So I upgraded to the rMBP this week. I now need a new bag and that is why I am back here!

    I fly 8 to 12 trips a year and typically pack pretty light but I worry more these days about computers and stuff gettting lost. I am looking to carry the rMBP an iPad and a couple of folders, AC adaptor, iPhone. The Ristretto will do that without much trouble but not enough protection.

    I have been looking at the CheckPoint Flyer and JUST DISCOVERED the 15in Cadet. With the Cadet Cache it is TSA friendly, and I feel a lot better about the kit being protected.

    I do not see any other bags that "keep the laptop connected" to the bag for speed and safety.

    So for space the Checkpoint Flyer for size the Cadet.

    What am I missing?

    I have looked at the Buzz but I am fussed up about pulling the computer out for TSA.

      I think you've made a great choice: the Checkpoint Flyer has more capacity than the Cadet. The main compartment of the Checkpoint Flyer will work great for your papers/file folders and the iPad. Will you put your iPad in a Cache or some other protective sleeve you already have?

      Let us know what you think of the Checkpoint Flyer once you receive it!
      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

        I have a book like folder for the iPad that should have that problem covered.

        Seems like the CF is popular, you folks ran out of the color I selected first.

          It is indeed popular: apologies that we ran out of your original color choice!
