It’s hard to think of a luggage brand as iconic as TUMI. Their luggage’s sleek, minimalist design and durable construction have made their products some of the best suitcases you can buy on the market. Recently, the New Jersey-based company put the luggage industry on notice with the release of their 19 Degree line, a collection of aluminum — and later recycled polycarbonate — luggage featuring a striking flowing design. Now, TUMI is expanding their purview of construction materials by adding a new carry-on with a Titanium construction to the 19 Degree line.
TUMI’s new international carry-on features a raw titanium construction to enhance the suitcase’s durability while ensuring it still remains lightweight and portable. By using titanium rather than aluminum, the suitcase is able to be far more resistant to dents than the aluminum or polycarbonate offerings. Moreover, the international titanium carry-on sports intricate carbon fiber-inspired accents throughout its exterior, as well as aircraft-grade aluminum tubing in its telescopic handles to ensure that the suitcase will hold up to the rigors of worldwide travel. For an extra layer of corner strength and impact resistance, TUMI designed the titanium carry-on with their patent-pending DuraFold construction method, which folds and reinforces the corners of hard-side cases with heavy-duty stitching and an impact-resistant cap. The titanium international carry-on also sports two TSA integrated combination locks, four dual-spinning wheels, and retractable top and side handles.
The suitcase’s interior boasts a gorgeous quilted divider, mesh pockets, and vintage-inspired destination stickers to provide the bag with a fun, decorative flare. Like all TUMI products, the titanium carry-on comes with the complimentary Tumi Tracer number to use in the very unfortunate event that you lose your TUMI suitcase. The TUMI titanium international carry-on retails for $3,000 and can be purchased on the brand’s website.
