TUMI Innovation by Design

Add-a-bag System

Quickly and easily add another travel piece or business case using our patented Add-A-Bag hook with secure fastened tab closure that holds in excess of 200 pounds. Also, many Tumi business cases and totes feature a back sleeve that slips over extended luggage handles allowing you to stack and carry heavier bags on your wheeled luggage. Used together, these systems allow travelers to carry 2 or even 3 items at the same time, effortlessly in one hand.

Omega Closure System®

Tumi's patented closure system significantly reduces the risk of damage to the zipper. The Omega zipper puller is designed to break away from the bag if it becomes caught. The puller, rather than the entire zipper, is then quickly and easily replaced.

FXT Ballistic®

Tumi was the first to bring ballistic nylon to the consumer market over 30 years ago. Now we have perfected it with our exclusive FXT ballistic fabric, which combines a unique weave and a special coating to make it ultra-tough and virtually abrasion proof.

Tumi Tracer®

The Tumi Tracer® is an exclusive, complimentary program that helps reunite Tumi customers with their lost or stolen items. The core of the program is a unique 20-digit individual product number printed on a special metal plate that is permanently affixed to Tumi products. That number, along with the owner's contact information, is entered into our Tracer database when a bag is registered with us, and used to help aid in the recovery of lost or stolen items that are reported to us.

Waterproof Pocket

This specially-designed pocket is ideal for keeping wet and damp items, including umbrellas, water bottles and workout clothes, separate from the other contents of the bag.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiWaterproofPocket

eReader

This item has a pocket or compartment that is designed to hold eReaders including the iPad™, Kindle™ and Nook™.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiEReader

ID Lock™

This item offers added security with protection against identity theft. It features an exclusive and patent pending technology that shields your personal information encoded on credit cards, passports and other forms of identification from would-be thieves using invasive communication and electronic data reading devices.

      I have 5 or 6 Tumi brief cases and this is hands down the best one I have purchased. I travel a lot for work and there are so many compartments for everything a business traveler needs. Great product.

        Comments about Compact Laptop Brief Pack®:

        The backpack needs an additional convenient, small front pocket where a passport, airline ticket and other travel documents may be placed for ready access. The current deep and oblong pockets are too big. When going through security or other points where ready access and re-depositing is important, with a line of fellow passengers behind you, a small pocket repository would be delightful.

        It is hard to find a stylish, professional looking backpack for corporate use - this bag fits the bill perfectly. This bag has been my daily companion for over four years. I have traveled the world with it and still looks great. It has many convenient pockets and keeps me organized on the go.

        Along the way, I have bought and returned over 20 backpacks in a futile effort to try to find a better bag. One of the best features of the bag is that it stands up when you set it down, no need to lean it against something.

        If you are a working professional who doesn't want to look like they just stepped off the hiking trail or school bus, and wants the benefits of having a complete mobile office, this is best choice on the market today IMHO.

        Comments about Compact Laptop Brief Pack®:

        The fourth Tumi Alpha backpack from the first generation. One belongs to my girlfriend-- so it is not only me. All four have zipper issues. It has been improved through the years however still problem. The first generation failed from the unreasonable weight distribution design. The recent one failed due to aggressive square design requiring the zipper to make sharp turn. And the way Tumi fixed it was superficial instead of changing zipper (too expensive to do so of course.) Be aware if you intend to use this as daily function. Why did I continue buying it? It looks proper for both business and personal.
