August 9, 2012

NEW YORK, NY – August 9, 2012 – If you are a frequent traveler or a mobile professional, investing in TSA friendly luggage can make getting through airport security a breeze. Altman Luggage, a leading online retailer of high quality luggage, has all the TSA friendly, lightweight luggage you need to make traveling as easy and hassle-free as possible.

TSA-Friendly Laptop Bag

A TSA-friendly laptop bag, also called “checkpoint friendly”, will allow you to pass through security without having to remove your laptop from the bag and place it in the bin. A laptop bag or business case that is TSA friendly will have a separate compartment for the laptop that can lay flat on the x-ray belt so that it can be scanned without other objects getting in the way. Approved laptop bags come in three styles: sleeve style, butterfly style, and trifold style. With a checkpoint friendly laptop bag, you have one less thing to worry about in the security line. Samsonite makes a number of high quality, lightweight checkpoint friendly laptop bags at affordable price points.

TSA Friendly Lock

A TSA friendly lock will ensure that your luggage is safe and secure. It is important to make sure your lock is TSA approved or it can be removed by airport security, which can result in damage to your bag. TSA can inspect your bag using a universal lock and combination. Eagle Creek and Briggs & Riley both offer an affordable TSA friendly lock to give you peace of mind while traveling. Some luggage brands including Delsey and Rimowa feature an integrated TSA friendly lock built into the luggage for ultimate security.

TSA Friendly Carry On

The best way to get through security quickly is to pack accordingly. TSA recommends packing a well-organized carry on bag, layering electronics, clothes, and heavier items. This will allow for TSA officers to easily check your bag without having to unpack it. Many carry on bags include a TSA Compliant clear PVC zip-lock 3-1-1 bag for your liquids.

The 3-1-1- Rule refers to the TSA’s regulations on how much liquid you can bring in your carry-on.

-          3- Each container must carry less than 3.4 ounces of liquid

-          1- Containers must be in 1 clear quart-sized bag

-          1- Each passenger may only have 1 bag
