Summary: I have now travelled enough with this bag to say that it serves my purpose: zip thru security without having to remove the computer from its bag. This works. The bag is comfortable to carry: handles are good and the shoulder belt (comes with the bag) is very, very comfortable. I haven't rated 5 stars, because the bag is 2 or 3 inches too tall, in my opinion.
Summary: So I used this for the first time on a trip to Florida. Indianapolis Intl. TSA made me take everything out of it, and Tampa Intl. made me remove laptop and turn it on. Seems a white man in a suit looks pretty dangerous? The case is nice, don't get me wrong, but it didn't work for it's intention.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) This bag holds my 15" Mac Laptop and its accessories quite comfortably. I don't know what I expected for the airport security features, but basically you store your laptop in a section with *nothing else added* so that the bag will unzip to open flat. This prevents the need to take the laptop out of the bag.
Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) This is a nicely made laptop bag, with many storage pockets and a secure placement for your laptop. I like that it has a form fitting compartment with a strap to hold the laptop in place. So, don't think you can buy this bag to fit a laptop bigger than 15.4---there is no room to spare because of the form fitting buffers. The other large compartment has plenty of room to hold files/papers/cords/mouse, etc.
Nice laptop case, claims of security check convenience slightly exaggerated

Summary: Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program ( What's this? ) In my view, this laptop case meets the requirements and expectations for its intended use - case and protect a laptop during transportation and provide sufficient and convenient room for the related items someone may bring along while traveling with the laptop. Briefly, this is what you get: - Solid, durable construction - padded ballistic nylon. - On the heavy side - 3.25 lbs.
Summary: The Targus case I received did not open flat like the picture showed on the Amazon page. Targus case #CUST02UA15S does open flat. I received Targus case #CUST02UA15, which I didn't want. Seller denied the wrong case was sent to me. Seller also was not prompt in returning my initial emails. I returned the case for a refund.
