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.

ID Lock™

This item offers added security with protection against identity theft.

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.

Comments about Organizer Brief:

I road tested this bag, small expandable screen, portfolio and a few Briggs and Riley bags - I really liked the BR Verb 2 and expandable verb compared to this when it comes to the warrantee, weight and overall look. In the end this won out due to the mix of secure and open compartments.

Too small for my application

Comments about Organizer Brief:

It's a nice piece in the sense that it's not overly bulky, and the size really prevents you from over stuffing it to a point that it becomes too heavy to carry. However, After a trial packing of my daily/routine stuff, I ended up returning it. My biggest complaints are:
- just because you have a slot or a pocket or a place to put a zipper, doesn't mean you can actually use it for anything meaningful. Think about it, if the 3 main pockets are at capacity, there's hardly any room left to slip something into these other paper-thin areas
- it has a laptop pocket. Great. Now where does my cord go? The power adapter for the laptop is probably 2x-3x as thick as the laptop, and you didn't provide me with a sleeve to put it in. This was one of the biggest annoyances, because the only other place to put your cord is in one of the larger, most valuable storage areas. Which eats up space for your more pressing storage needs
- the hand straps were just too small; by the time I had my daily routine packed into the bag, it had expanded a bit, and it felt like a struggle to keep the handles together. Especially if you have shorter fingers.

Again, nice to look at overall, but just not practical for my day to day. If I didn't have to haul a computer around with me everyday I could make this work. I had bought this to replace my older alpha back pack, but I think I'll continue using it as the trend I've seen across the alpha 2 line seems to be "smaller, trimmer, less functional". I would still recommend it to someone in lieu of a messenger bag but only if you don't need to carry a laptop AND several other critical things.

        I was very diaappointed with this breif case for many reasons:
        --I asked for this to be gift wrapped and it arrived with no gift wrap.
        -- The monogrammed was way off center
        -- The breifcase was front heavy and keeps falling over, when I tried this with the same breifcase at the store and it did not fall over

        I returned this

          Best briefcase they make

          Pros

          • Great Use of Space
          • Well thought out pockets

          Cons

          • Shoulder Strap Connection

          Best Uses

          • Great travel bag

          Comments about Organizer Brief:

          Great bag, best bag they make in my opinion. I tried a couple of their others on a few brief trips and finally settled on this one. Great use of space and compartmentalization.

          Definitely deal with a Tumi store direct and don't be afraid to ask them for more options as they don't always have all the bags out on display. Easy to swap from one bag to another an ether staff is very pleasant to deal with.

          Only complaint is I hate bags that anchor the shoulder strap down in the sides as I find the bag to be a little less stable when carrying. But the fact that the anchor points are offset on opposite sides of the zipper helps a great deal.

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Becomes My Mobile Office
            • Transport Laptop Ipad

            Comments about Organizer Brief:

            I had seen other Tumi briefcases in stores, but not this one. Based on the photos and description, I thought this model might best meet my needs. I did not get it monogrammed in case I needed to return it, but now regret that I did not, because it has more than met my expectations. I found very useful pockets and spaces that I did not expect. The center slipper pocket with magnetic closure is perfect for my iPad. The space for my laptop is easily accessible and provides plenty of protection. I cannot think of anything I would change and am very happy with my choice. I am also very happy that my wife and children treated me with this terrific gift for my birthday. I am 68 and can easily see this Tumi case being handed down to my son and my grandson.
