Save time at security with the innovative ATLAS travel bag

When you’re a frequent flyer, it’s surprising just how much time you can waste looking for your passport and in airport security. The ATLAS travel bag helps you reclaim those precious minutes, thanks to an innovative design.

  • How long is the average waiting time in security? According to the TSA, the national average is 30 minutes. Of course, that figure grows during busy periods.
  • Can you check airport security wait times online? Yes. The free MyTSA smartphone app provides estimated times, as reported by fellow travelers.
  • How do you save time at airport security? Sign up for TSA PreCheck, and pack the ATLAS travel bag. It provides easy access to liquids and electronics.

For most of us, airport security is a tedious but inevitable part of any vacation. We tend to greet the queues with a certain level of quiet acceptance, given that we don’t often encounter the experience. For frequent flyers, however, security is a genuine life-waster. At busier airports, you can waste several hours on every return trip.

While the queues are unavoidable, the ATLAS travel bag at least makes the check a bit quicker. It has quick-access pockets for all your liquids and electronics, so you don’t have to fumble around under the glare of a TSA agent.

How can a travel bag help you save time?

According to a study in 2010, the average traveler wastes 16 days of their life in airports. Presumably, frequent flyers waste many more days in a lifetime. Thanks to an innovative design, ATLAS helps you reclaim this time for something more constructive.

Save time with ATLAS

The first thing you notice about this travel bag is all the zippers. For the security check, the most important zipper can be found on the front of the bag. This secures a pocket that can hold phones, chargers, small bottles of hand lotion, and so on. Basically, all the things that you will need to provide at airport security.

ATLAS gives you quick access

One large zipper runs the length of the bag. Unzip this, and the ATLAS folds open like a suitcase. Inside, you will find removable compartments for folded clothes, and a 13-inch laptop sleeve. There’s also space for shoes, toiletries and accessories.

In addition, ATLAS has a hidden pocket on the outside. This is the perfect hiding place for things you need to access often, but don’t want to flaunt. It’s easily big enough for your phone or a small wallet.

Not just airport security

ATLAS doesn’t just look the part

Aside from storage, ATLAS offers great build quality and design. The bag is available in six different colors, and it’s small enough to fit under 95% of economy class seats.

The bag also has an auto-recoil charging cable on the outside, complete with multiple adapters.

“Our design was inspired by our busy lifestyle. With a mix between office life, traveling to meet clients or just weekend getaways, we needed a bag that could look great yet was designed for maximum functionality. Using only hand-selected premium materials and hardware, we are confident that your ATLAS bag will withstand anything you throw at it.” — JMNY on Kickstarter
