TUMI Innovation by Design

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 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.

Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle

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

Tegris®

TEGRA-LITE® lightweight, hardside cases are made from Tegris®, a revolutionary, polypropylene thermoplastic composite material that is incredibly lightweight and exceptionally durable. Created by Milliken® for use in lifesaving armor, protective sports gear used by the NFL and NASCAR race car components, Tegris offers unparalleled strength and impact resistance at very light weights. It is consistent with Tumi's high standards of design excellence and is globally exclusive to Tumi for use in travel and accessory products.

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.

Comments about Tegra-Lite® Max Medium Trip Expandable Packing Case:

My husband and I were so disappointed to see our brand new Tumi bag come out of baggage claim all scuffed up. The exterior is shiny and beautiful but now it looks quite damaged. Broke out hearts. The bag itself is lovely, great quality, great capacity but is quite heavy to begin with. I have to pack all my heavy items in my carry on to make sure the Tumi bag doesn't go over. I would recommend the bag but with a caution about how the exterior will most definitely get scratched and scuffed from the baggage handlers.

            Comments about Tegra-Lite® Max Medium Trip Expandable Packing Case:

            I've had my Tegris medium case for about 4 years. It has flown to Europe twice, Puerto Rico once, Thailand once (with three flights within that country), French Polynesia once, three cruises, one train ride (Berlin to Prague), more local trips than I care to count, and it still looks new. It is in the discontinued orange color (Sunrise?). I've seen complaints here by people claiming their bag looked beat up after just one trip. The bag does end up with some black marks on it after each trip, but a little household cleaner and a paper towel and it comes out shiny and new again. There was one scuff on my bag that lifted the color layer up in a flap in an area about 1/4 inch around. A little super glue and once again it looks good as new. Airline baggage areas are filthy. Your bag will get dirty. The smooth texture of the Tegris material is easy to clean and care for. If I go looking for defects in the bag, I can find little dings here and there, but nothing that anyone at any airport would notice as I walk by. The Tegris material is tough, the zippers are strong, the wheels are effortless. I'm buying one of the new Tegris Max cases for my partner and look forward to many more years with my case. I only wish they were still making the cases in all the colors they used to use.

                Comments about Tegra-Lite® Max Medium Trip Expandable Packing Case:

                I purchased the Medium Tegra Lite last week. I had to exchange the first one delivered because the lock would not function correctly. No one at Tumi had any idea how to open it. The suggestion emailed to me involved jamming a butter knife under the wheels on the lock - not exactly what you'd expect for this company. I immediately sent it back. The new one arrived very quickly, which was great. I used it this weekend for the first time and it looks like someone ran over it with a bus. It is scratched and scuffed. Sure, we can blame the airline, but I expected much more from the description of this "durable" product. Also, the accent pieces have already fallen off the zippers. The main zipper (not the one to expand the case) is already jammed. What a complete bust. I expected so much more from this company. The quality has gone so downhill since I firts became a customer 20 years ago.
