Tail bag backpack recommendation

Hi, I am looking for a recommendation on a Tail bag that can be quickly detached. Ideally something that is more of a backpack style bag that has a laptop pocket etc. I have seen a few online but I can't tell how truly mobile they are. I would have to be able to get it thru the security at airport etc.. and again, needs to to be easy to attach/remove from the bike.

Kriega US-30 with a neoprene laptop sleeve. Some companies make clip on backpack straps that work great with the US-30. Mine came from Nelson Riggs.

Used it a bunch through airports over the years. Never a problem.

But the Kriega already comes with a shoulder and waist belt to wear messenger bag style. If you're just going from the bike to the plane that should be fine for you no?

I prefer this in an airport as this way I have the bag in my peripheral vision.

+1 on Kreiga. Superb build quality, well thought out, & truly waterproof.

Intrigued by that new Mosko tail bag trunk thing. It has backpack straps hidden in there and some other cool features.
