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.

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.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiIDlock

eReader

This item has a pocket or compartment that is designed to hold eReaders including the iPad™, Kindle™ and Nook™.

Excellent bag, still going strong after 4 years of use

Comments about Compact Laptop Brief Pack®:

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.

          I purchased this for my 13 year old son and his is very proud of the bag. It is able to handle the multitude of things he needs each day plus when we travel it is capacious enough for anything he needs to take as "Hand carry". Overall a fine example of obtaining the most use of the space available within the dimensions.

            I use this backpack everyday for work. I'm constantly moving and I needed something that can have my laptop and iPhone and all the paperwork for my work. I thought this backpack would be a great help for my everyday business but now I think as essential for it.

              I originally had the 22382HKH w/o the luggage sleeve (I bought it prior to the addition of the sleeve). I absolutely loved this bag but wanted an upgrade that would accommodate overnight trips where I may have a change of clothes. It came down to purchasing this bag here or the 26578D2. When it came down to it, I did not like the "turtle shell" feel of the 26578D2. It is bulkier than this bag here. I felt like I was on Mario Brothers with that other one on my back in the store. In addition, I found that this bag here was more conducive in keeping my iPad and laptop in the same location, an additional file sleeve to further organize my documents, room for all of my cords and adaptors, and additional space for a change of clothes if I ever want to utilize this function. The 26578D2 has a T-Pass compartment but I did not mind taking my laptop out when traveling through security at airports. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
