TUMI Innovation by Design

  • eReader

    This item has a pocket or compartment that is designed to hold eReaders including the iPad™, Kindle™ and Nook™.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Comments about Small Screen Expandable Laptop Brief:

I use this as my flight bag at my work as a pilot.
I carry a laptop, iPad and a headset in it. Because of the way I use it, and the bags position next to my seat in the cockpit, I would have preferred the zipper to the main compartment to be at the top front part of the bag. Not in the back. That would have made it easier to access my headset and other items I carry. Now it´s easy to access the laptop and iPad, but not my other stuff. That would in turn have made it necessary to move the zipper for the expandable feature to the top back of the brief. I use it fully expanded at work, but then it fits all my stuff.
I realise that this is an issue for me personally, but might not be to people that mainly use it as an laptop brief.
I like the carry handles, but wish they were at least 1 inch longer.

All in all I´m happy with it. The quality seems great. As I´m used to with my other Tumi luggage.

      Not happy with the monogram. Letters were not "pressed" evenly and the last letter is difficult to see.
      Disappointing- especially for the price I paid.
      I would have given it 5 Stars had it not been for this.
      I'd like Tumi to provide a solution.

      Everything is good except the front pocket design makes it a little difficult to see inside.

      Realize you are fully dedicating yourself to the 13 inch laptop.

      Comments about Small Screen Expandable Laptop Brief:

      I travel with this bag and use it for daily meetings. I have a MacBook Air and the laptop slot is far too big and bows inward. Other Tumi bags have a more slim pocket for laptops. It's toss-up. There's no perfect small-format Tumi bag on the market right now. And I very much prefer the classic Tumi black ballistic look.

        Comments about Small Screen Expandable Laptop Brief:

        Love all my Tumi bags, and used to prefer more casual styles like the Alpha Bravo, but decided I needed a more serious businessman's bag. This one fits the bill, and does so wonderfully. It's brilliantly organized, with lots of zippered pockets and compartments in all the right places. It's lightweight yet incredibly tough. It's got a bunch of clever design touches to just make it work in everyday life.

        I haven't tried it on an overnight yet, but for day trips, I love the small size yet ample space. For day to day use, it clings to your body and stays out of the way on busy subways and buses (save the environment, skip the car, eh).

        Things I love: the swiveling shoulder pad, the ID lock pocket, the expandable design, the many many many pockets, the YKK zippers... I could go on. Best bag I've ever had.

          Replaced an older version of this bag, but by far ... this is the perfect Tumi bag for carrying Lenovo Yoga and iPad, along with passport, RFID protected pocket (BTW) and so much more. I depend on a bag to keep things organized, and this one does. It expands (like other one), but has more compartments. Tumi has always been a superior product, but this bag is a classic! And somehow they've made it lighter than its older sister. Please do us all a favor and promote this bag more.

          The product is perfect for an International travelling executive. I bought more that 10 of this and similar Tumi products. this time, even though I took the trouble to check on the phone with the company that this product will arrive on time if I buy it on line, it did not!
          That was a problem for me, that I have part of the company in the US and part in the UK. now I am in Europe and this briefcase is in Florida. big disappointment!
