Staples to sell checkpoint-friendly laptop bags


FRAMINGHAM, Mass. Staples announced that it will debut four new airport security checkpoint-friendly laptop bags in November to help travelers minimize the risk of losing or damaging laptops at security checkpoints.

Checkpoint-friendly laptop designs from leading manufacturers like Samsonite, Pathfinder and Targus at Staples stores nationwide and on Staples has been named the only office supply superstore to carry the new, top models from Samsonite, including the Samsonite Checkmate Business Laptop Bag and Samsonite Checkmate Casual Laptop Bag.

“At Staples, we’re continually seeking ways to offer our customers new innovations and solutions that make their lives easier,” said Mark Mettler, senior vp of merchandising for Staples. “With thousands of laptops lost – and never reclaimed – every week at airport security, these cases help meet the needs of today’s busy traveler, and they’re a perfect gift for that on-the-go friend, colleague or family member.”

All bags sold at Staples meet TSA specifications for the new checkpoint-friendly initiative for travelers. Now, travelers using these bags should no longer need to remove their laptop when passing through security. The laptop bags have a designated laptop-only section that completely unfolds to lie flat on the X-ray belt. The special baggage designs allow for clear imaging of the devices when moving through the X-ray machine and the rest of the bag’s contents can be put in adjacent compartments.
