Kasum TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack

This attractive backpack made by Looptworks is made entirely from upcycled materials, meaning that old fabrics destined for landfill, incineration, or recycling have been transformed into something of greater value – a high-quality backpack that should last you for many years. (Read more about the benefits of closed-loop manufacturing here.) Its production has saved virgin resources from being tapped and conserved an estimated 25 gallons of water in the process.

TSA-Friendly means that the bag has been designed to go through airport security checkpoints more efficiently: "A design that meets this objective will enable TSA to allow laptops to remain in bags for screening."
