An easier way to travel…

Posted on: June 22, 2009

aerovation easy travel trolley bag tsa approvedI don’t know about you, but I cringe at the thought of flying because it’s become such a laborious process.  Going through security is the absolute worst because I’m always fumbling to get my laptop out of its case so it can be put through the scanner.  Well I found an easier way…

Recently I traveled from the U.S. to Australia with an Aerovation® CPF® Trolley Bag, and I never had to remove the laptop from my bag!  How is this possible?  Because the Trolley was designed TSA friendly! — marvelous right?!

Here’s how it works: 

  • Your laptop computer goes in the bag’s designated laptop compartment.  Your accessories and personal items go in the other compartment. 
  • When you get to the scanning tunnel leave your laptop in the bag.  Just swing the laptop compartment open and lay the flattened bag on the belt (See photo). 
  • When you get to the other side simply grab the handle and go!

It seems too easy, I know.  But this bag worked for me in two countries.  In the U.S. I simply told the attendant my bag was TSA approved and they let me pass without further questioning.  In Australia, they recognized the bag immediately and let me right through.  It’s so easy and hassle free.  You’ll love it…especially if you travel a lot for work.

The Aerovation® CPF® Trolley Bag is available at http://www.aerovation.com/ for $199. 

Happy traveling,
Marvelous Girl

Just so no one is confused. TSA doesn’t “approve” bags for checkpoints. What they did do is pave the way for bag makers to design bags that would give you a clear and unobstructed view of the bag in the X-ray tunnel.

Where the Aerovation bag expands on that is how easily it does this. Rather than having to unzip, unfold, find the multiple handles and rezip the bag at the bottom of the conveyor while struggling with shoes in one hand and crying baby in the other, you just grab and go.

Unless the bag has a logo stamped on the front that says ‘This is TSA approved that you don’t have to take your laptop out,’ I’m not buying it.

The plain truth is that most TSA agents are automatons, going through their routines mindlessly. They won’t even know such bags exist, much less that they’re allowed. You can argue with them until you’re blue in the face that, no, really, this bag is *approved*– but it won’t make a damned bit of difference unless you have a tangible symbol to overrule them. Otherwise, this bag is useless.
