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.

Secure Slide® Shoulder Strap Attachment

Our exclusive, patented shoulder strap attachment design features a cover that slides into place to ensure that the clip stays closed securely. This feature eliminates the risk of bags accidentally falling from the shoulder strap and damaging the case's contents. It can only be opened manually when the hook is placed parallel to the strap attachment.

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 Patented Articulating Shoulder Strap

Move with greater ease with this patented design. The metal loop joints that attach the straps to the shoulder pad helps keep the bag from sliding off your shoulder as you move.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiPatArtShoulderSt

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

Removable Laptop Cover

Our removable laptop cover offers protection for your laptop and convenient carrying options. It can be carried on its own and slips easily into most travel bags, totes and business cases.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiRemoveLapCovCar

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.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiIDlock

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.

      I've tried with different ways of loading the bag, but it always tends to lean on a forward angle or even roll over. Surprising for such an expensive quality bag.

        Our son provided a link to Tumi stating he would really like to have the brief case. It will set him apart from the other consultants. He was so pleased with the case. We will check with him after a period of time to see if it is working out for him.

        Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Brief:

        I bought this bag from Dulles Airport in Washington DC from some of the best sales associates. They were extremely helpful and monogrammed my bag in minutes. By the time I landed, the bag was falling apart. Where the shoulder strap connected to the bag, the piece of leather was hanging on by a single thread. Although Tumi's warranty said I shouldn't have to pay to have it repaired, I have never been reimbursed for shipping. It was a week long ordeal before I was able to send the bag in for repair. Support in the US was terrible, and it was only after I sent the bag to a repair facility in Germany was I updated.
        Once the bag was returned from repair, and I was actually able to use it, I like the bag. It keeps all of my papers and notebooks organized, and the laptop compartment fits a full size Dell no problem.

          Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Brief:

          I have been using Tumi's briefcases more than 10 years because of the product strength and the features. However, this item (Style#: 26141D2) has problem for the structure's design between the brief body and the shoulder strap. I submitted repair request because the sewn connection between the shoulder strap's connection and the brief body was broken when I lifted the bag upon my shoulder.
          Previous Model 26041D4 which I had been using more than 7 years, did not break. This model was broken in 3 month after I purchased.

          This is the third Tumi briefcase I've had over the past 20+ years and they are all very functional and reflect classical styling. This bag solves a few issues I had with the previous Alpha Expandable briefcase, specifically the front open pocket no longer sags when carried by the strap and the lower front pocket is now more useful. However, the bag seems to always want to roll onto its front side. I've tried moving the laptop to the back slots and it doesn't help. I think the main front ribbing should have been reinforced to help it stand upright.

          Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Brief:

          This bag is fantastic, but with only one issue (and this may be isolated to my bag only...). The metal clips under the shoulder pad (on the shoulder strap) keep turning and digging into my shoulder. If I have to carry the bag around for more than 10 minutes or so (typical for me to do so in an airport!) I end up with bruises from the strap!

          Additionally, there's not a lot of padding on the strap itself compared to other bags I have owned, so even when I would fix the metal clips, it would still be pretty uncomfortable (although not as painful!) and makes the bag feel very heavy.

          I actually removed the Tumi strap and put one from another bag on, and have found this setup to be significantly more comfortable. With the non-Tumi strap, the bag also feels significantly lighter on my shoulder!

          Other than that, the bag is excellent, and highly recommended for anyone who travels or just has a lot of stuff to commute with!

          Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Brief:

          I had a TUMI bag for over 10 years since I bought it in the World Trade Center. The old bag was bigger than this bag and had twice as many pockets especially internally in the dividers including a useable thin long accessory pouch. The dimensions in the new bag are not compatible with larger normal sized laptops. So I picked the bag for the removal laptop holder which of course does not fit my computer by a half inch. Since I had the bag personalized with my initials I will face an interesting discussions with TUMI to exchange the bag for the larger one that I did not select for this bag. The only positive is that with a smaller bag, you are of course forced to lighten the load. But as in other people's reviews, regretfully we tend to pack too much into these bags. The look is very stylish but I am disappointed that they cut back on the number of pockets.

            This was a gift to myself as my same style bag was stolen in NYC. I really like all the compartments but I am always inclined to take too much stuff with me. It becomes very heavy. It also feels somewhat heavy when completely heavy.
