Mobile Edge ScanFast Onyx Checkpoint Friendly Briefcase Review by Audrey Tolle

Mobile Edge
1150 North Miller Street
Anaheim, CA 92806-2001

As a busy homeschooling mom and small business owner, there are many times that I need to transport my laptop and important paperwork and books with me. Whether to our co-op or sports practice or on a road trip, my computer now travels in style with Mobile Edge’s Onyx brief case.

The ScanFast Onyx Checkpoint Friendly Briefcase is a beautifully designed briefcase that sports designer quality material with fashionable faux croc embellishments. It has a dedicated laptop section that fits up to a 16” laptop or 17” MacBook. The ScanFast design is compatible with TSA travel requirements. This allows you to leave your laptop in the case when traveling through security checkpoints. You can simply unzip it and lay it flat. Our family flies fairly often and when trying to get a handful of kids through security, any time saving methods are much appreciated.

There are other spacious compartments for paperwork and other necessities and a cute little removeable pouch for make-up, ID cards, etc.

This is a fantastic briefcase for my needs. It has plenty of room to store my needed supplies and paperwork but isn’t too bulky and awkward to carry. The straps are strong and long enough where it comes to comfortable place on my side and the weight is distributed at a comfortable ratio. The design is attractive on all levels, both cosmetically and functionally. I would highly recommend this briefcase in both areas of design and quality.
