The Good Generous padding; big front pocket; may speed your way through airport security checkpoints.

The Bad The TSA agent may force you to take your laptop out anyway; very expensive.

The Bottom Line CODi's butterfly style Phantom CT3 laptop bag may help you through airport security checkpoints faster, but you'll pay for the privilege.

The CODi Phantom CT3 is one of a handful of laptop bags we've seen recently that comply with recently released official guidelines from the TSA for creating laptop cases that can go through an X-ray machine with a laptop still inside. It's a potential win for any harried traveler who has ever been stuck at a security checkpoint, where, despite repeated admonitions, there's always someone right in front of you who forgot to take his or her laptop out of its case.

The $225 Phantom CT3 is stylistically similar, but much more expensive than the $99 Targus Zip-Thru Corporate Traveler. Both bags have two main compartments: one for your laptop, and one for everything else. The two compartments split open, butterfly style, so it can lay flat on the X-ray machine's conveyor belt.
