TUMI Innovation by Design

  • 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.
  • eReader

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

    Tumi's T-Pass® allows you to breeze through airport security hassle-free. T-Pass computer cases and sleeves are designed to meet the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) technical requirements for "checkpoint friendly" bags by providing a clear scan of your computer without removing it from the case. NOTE: The TSA reserves the right to ask anyone to remove a computer from its case, or re-screen any bag or laptop regardless of the design of the case.
  • 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.

    If we can make some more space when i put my MacBook Pro 15" it is a bit tight. Same with the easy access compartment can be made a little wider.

        Comments about Tumi T-Pass® Expandable Laptop Brief:

        I just got this last week but love it. It's big enough to hold my ipad, laptop, umbrella, headphones and other things on top of my work documents. I wanted one case that I could use for everyday use and have enough room for extra things during business trips and this works great. I love the red monogram that I had added as well, looks great. The bag seems super durable and does not seem too big at all for everyday use, which was a concern I had when I bought it.

        I haven't used the T-Pass feature yet but am looking forward to it since I lost a laptop at security a few years back when I was rushing to catch a plan. Great idea.

        Bottom line, fantastic briefcase.

          I am an attorney who is a frequent flier (almost always with my laptop and files). This bag is the best bag I have ever owned. It is spacious, comfortable, and stylish. I plan on buying one for my wife.

          Comments about Tumi T-Pass® Expandable Laptop Brief:

          I travel frequently (12-15 times a year). With All airline restrictions of 2 carry on bags, I needed something that substitutes my purse and still be able to carry what I need. So I bought this bag. The bag has many pockets. I just used it for my recent trip and i was able to carry my laptop,ipad,bose headset, files, water bottle, power adapter and other misc item without having to struggle to fit all in.

          The bag carries so much weight and still does not look bulky but it looks stylish. I am happy I got this bag. Passing throught security was easy too since I did not have to take out my laptop.

          I own 3 other tumi bags (various sizes) and I am planning to add couple of more.

          It is a great buy!

            Comments about Tumi T-Pass® Expandable Laptop Brief:

            I have had a backpack style bag that I have used for business travel, but my sense was I needed something more professional. I remembered my boss had a Tumi case so I decided to purchase the T-Pass Expandable Laptop Brief after doing some online research. I love the look and feel of the bag. I purchased it two days ago and just made my first trip to Newark today. The T-Pass was great in Tampa....just went right through security without taking my notebook out. The handles are comfortable for me, and the slot in the back for your carry on pull bag is very useful. I had so many issues with my backpack falling off of my carry on....not any more. The front pockets are quite roomy and the front pouch is great for sliding in magazines or paperwork you need to access easily. I carried the following in the bag today and it really felt like things just fit together. 15" Notebook, power cord, bag full of cables, iPad with case, Bose headphones, 3 magazines, brochures and magazines for business, camera, sunglasses, wallet, and other smaller items. Everything fit comfortably and overall it is just a great bag. Oh and when I purchased the bag in the Tumi store in the International Mall in Tampa, they were able to monogram the plate in just a couple minutes too....nice touch. This is my first Tumi purchase and I plan on purchasing more of their products in the future. I don't have anything bad to say about this bag so far.
