Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle
The tubing of our telescoping handles is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, making them both lightweight and extremely sturdy.
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. Our FXT ballistic nylon® performs better than other top competitor soft side materials in durability testing.
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.
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 feature virtually eliminates damage to the handle tubes while reducing the overall weight of the case.
Tumi's patented 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.
Our patent-pending expansion system provides two stages of expansion and up to 2.5 extra inches of packing space. The durable, lightweight spring-loaded levers are designed to open and close easily and securely.
