TUMI Innovation by Design

Easy Glide Wheels

Our state-of-the-art in-line wheels incorporate sealed steel ball bearings and are mounted on solid steel axles in custom-designed, shock-absorbing bushings. They roll smoothly and quietly for hundreds of miles.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiEasyGlide

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.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiOmegaClosure

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.

X-Brace 45® Handle System

This patented, innovative handle tube system protects the telescopic handle of the travel case. It is made from lightweight-yet-sturdy aircraft-grade aluminum that forms a protective, impact-absorbing structure around telescoping handle tubes within the case. This new features virtually eliminates damage to the handle tubes while reducing the overall weight of the case.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiXBrace45Handle

DuraFold™

Tumi's patent-pending DuraFold™ construction method folds and reinforces the corners of hardside cases with heavy-duty stitching and impact-resistant caps that provide superior corner strength and impact resistance for long lasting use.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiDuraFold

Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle

The tubing of our telescoping handles is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, making them both lightweight and extremely sturdy.

      Great bag for carrying lots and lots of items. Although big, and kind of difficult to lug around in subways or tight quarters, it's most excellent at what it does. It's durable -- it has taken a beating on my extended trips to the Gulf and Asia. And its stylish (it's always getting compliments. But most significantly, it's versatile. Love it!

        Comments about Large Wheeled Split Duffel:

        I have two of these bags, so I guess it means I really like it.
        I purchased my first one four years ago because I liked the fact that I could store my shoes separately on the bottom half and clothing on the top. That was a real plus for me.
        The rectangular space is great for packing longer items that other bags not might be able to fit (for example my wife's Rim@wa which has a larger capacity can't fit in long items that I can throw in my wheeled duffle.)
        It stands up pretty tall so you get the picture.
        Also it's really easy to spot on the baggage carousel in the sea of similarly shaped four wheeled boxes.
        As for packing if you use packing cubes you can actually pack it pretty efficiently.
        But you do need to purchase another lock to lock the top and bottom compartment.
        One complaint (not at the bag itself) is that when I purchased my second one Tumi changed the red color of the Accent your Tumi kit and it doesn't match the rest of my set!

          I've had this bag four years. I rate it highly durable as after dozens of flights the airlines haven't broken or even scuffed it to amount to anything. I see other reviewers saying its too big or too heavy when packed - I say it is perfect for 4-5 day fishing and hunting trips.

          Comments about Large Wheeled Split Duffel:

          This was my favorite bag until the airlines got serious about charging overweight fees. I use Tumi packing cubes for clothing,a hanging travel kit and assorted Tumi accessory pouches. Using those items, the bag weighed in at 52-54 lbs. After being hit 2x with overweight fees, I adjusted my packing a bit. I used large ziploc bags for clothing, and a lighter weight toiletry kit and managed to get the weight down to 48lbs. The split compartments and outside pockets are a great way to stay organized. I am a Tumi devotee and own several luggage pieces, an assortment of business cases and accessory items. Some pieces I have owned for 17 years and they still look great. I would gladly purchase another bag similar to this, if it were made in a lighter weight material.

          Perfect Extended Trip Bag

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • 2 separate compartments
          • Included garment bag

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Extended travel
            • Packing lots of shoes

            Comments about Large Wheeled Split Duffel:

            The quality, craftmanship, and style is what one would expect from Tumi, top-notch.

            I use this bag for extended trips (7+ days) or if traveling with a friend on shorter trips. It holds everything I need including the Alpha Hanging Travel Kit (#22190). I use the lower zip section to hold multiple pairs of shoes (6 pair to be exact when traveling with a friend). The top section is large enough to hold clothing for 2 or for those trips when cold weather gear must be packed. The side pockets are great for storing all accessories. Be careful how you pack though since weight could be an issue. With 6 pairs of shoes, clothes for 2 people for 4 days, winter jackets/layers, and toiletries I came in right at 50 pounds.

            I agree with another reviewer in that I would like the bag to have come with at least two TSA friendly locks instead of one. One for the top compartment and one for the bottom compartment. Also, one of the leather side traps/handles gets scuffed up when the bag is stood on end and/or wheeled around.

            Pushed the weight limits

              Best Uses

                Comments about Large Wheeled Split Duffel:

                Tumi needs to modify the product specs. Dimensions are nice, but what we really need are approximate weights of each luggage piece packed full. With airlines charging fees for overweight bags and tour companies frowning upon bags over 50lbs, packed weight is the spec most valuable.

                I purchased 2 large/split/wheeled duffels for our recent vacation. Without using the exterior pockets, and a little free space in the top section, they weighed in at 51 and 48 pounds.

                I would also suggest Tumi include 2 locks per bag vs 1 (for both the top section and bottom). You can access the top section via the bottom. Based upon the cost of each bag, what's one more lock.

                Some design flaws

                By Kiwi traveler

                from San Clemente

                Verified Reviewer

                Comments about Large Wheeled Split Duffel:

                The handles in the middle are too short. It is very difficult to get the two handles together and then snap the leather center piece. The nylon straps should be several inches longer, like most other duffles. The quality of the snap is also poor and broke the first time I used it.
                Side pockets do not lock and I had items taken by airport baggage handlers, very easy and quick to access so it is and easy target.
                It should also have another handle at the bottom making it easier to pick up and put in a vehicle. Most duffles I have used do have a handle at both ends and they are much easier to move around.
                Love the shoe compartment and want to see it Tumi backs up the repair before I recommend the item to anyone else.

                Best Uses

                • Frequent hotel changes
                • Sports equipment

                Comments about Large Wheeled Split Duffel:

                Recent 4 weeks international business trip with lots of clothes & shoes ! Easy to find your clothes, easy access. Easy to identify if you buy a colour. Great as collapsable. Sufficient handles on various sides !
                Once filled and loaded, to roll through airport, becomes very heavy. Difficult to lift onto scale at check-in. Due to shape/length 26kgs feel heavier then 32 in other suitcases. not convinced I would buy it again.
                Recommend to strong male friend, not to lady friends.
