TUMI Fall 2014 Collection at The Travel Club Abreeza
TUMI travels to the city of Amsterdam. A city defined by high contrasts, the collection harmonizes the tensions of design: engineering vs. craftsmanship, utilitarian vs. artisanal and basics vs. future. Amsterdam’s old-world charm reunited with a picturesque destination inspires an assortment of travel and lifestyle accessories for the global citizen. The world-renowned artwork of Netherlands’ native Rembrandt is reflected in the Fall color palette of deep, dark tones of Olive, Navy, Garnet, and Sapphire.
The next incarnation of Tegra-Lite has arrived. This fall, TUMI will debut new styles within its Tegra-Lite lineup of the most durable and fully-functional hardside travel cases with the launch of Tegra-Lite Max. Providing the global traveler with a myriad of new packing features, including an exterior front pocket and zippered expansion capabilities, this premier travel assortment incorporates lightweight design with the most innovative materials, proprietary to the brand. Tegra-Lite® Max packs in enhanced elements that showcase both the technical innovation and intelligent design that goes into each TUMI product. Key advancements include an exterior U-Zip Pocket, expansion capabilities, double 360° wheels, a new Durafold™ construction, and TUMI’s patented X-Brace 45® handle system.
A differentiator from standard hardside cases, the U-Zip exterior pocket is built to house easy-access essentials and expand inwardly, providing the traveler with additional packing capacity for items such as toiletries, jackets, and passports. Structured with a slim profile, the U-Zip pocket incorporates TUMI’s signature ballistic nylon in the gusset which is pleated to maintain dimensions, a monogram patch and leather trim detailing. Engineered for strength, the zipper-to-zipper expansion capability offers up to 2” of additional packing space. Newly designed, patent-pending double 360° wheels are recessed into the body of the packing cases with benefits including stable and superior multi-directional navigation, less friction and a roomier interior compared to carry-on bags with surface-mounted wheels.
To optimize exterior capacity, the patent-pending Durafold construction method folds and reinforces the frames with heavy duty yet lightweight stitching and impact-resistant caps which provide superior corner strength. Tegra-Lite Max utilizes TUMI’s patented X-Brace 45® handle housing system. Made from lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum, this advanced system forms a protective, impact-absorbing structure around the telescoping handle tubes within the case. Three handle height options allow for easier maneuverability and convenience when rolling through the airport.
Alpha Bravo – Designed for the individual who’s always on the go, the Alpha Bravo collection offers casual styles tailored to one’s transitional lifestyle. New to the assortment, the Greely Sling Backpack, is versatile and ideal for weekend outings, your daily commute or longer journeys. The strap can be attached in two places to accommodate left- and right-side wearing options. The Greely Sling Bacpack will be available in Olive color.
