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.

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.

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.

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 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

Convertible

This specially-designed bag offers global travelers versatile carry options by easily changing silhouettes.

      Comments about TUMI Three Way Brief:

      I have an older expensive leather Tumi briefcase that I love, but taking the train now into the city and walking up to four miles a day requires a backpack and durability. I prefer a briefcase to backpack and this lets me have both. The ergonomics are prefect, it is very light, holds a lot. My other looks better but this looks very good too. In a suit or on a bike it works. Shoulder strap is excellent though I rarely use it.

      A minor niggle is that pens with caps get stuck in the pen holders, and there are only two of these.

        Comments about TUMI Three Way Brief:

        This is a great item, I'm glad Tumi brought it back. This is ideal for the active professional. You can wear it on your back like a backpack, but it looks just like a briefcase. I walk to the train to commute everyday, and around the city, and carrying a heavy briefcase in one hand or using a single shouldstap was hard on my neck/back. Since I started using this, with both backpack straps to evenly distribute the weight, I haven't had anymore neck/back problems. With zipperd top entry for all the pockets I can set it on the seat next to me on the train and easily access my work, bottle of water, iPad and other items in the bag. Finally, because it looks just like a briefcase, I can bring it to important meetings without feeling out of place.

          Comments about TUMI Three Way Brief:

          Tumi's Three way model is not new for me. It was there a few years ago. At that time, I gave a gift to me my relative and he still uses it. He always mentions it's best part is the "THREE WAYS". It substitutes all types of bags to his generation. He says that it is still new as it was in the beginning. It can also be used by University students because of the THREE WAYS. I am very happy to find its come back after it was out of the shelves for a couple of years. Great job. I am also thinking to buy it for myself.
