There are two things frequent travellers need from their luggage above all else: something lightweight, to meet both airline requirements and ease-of-use, and something durable enough to handle the rigours of constant travel.
With the new TUMI Latitude collection, these qualities are offered up in spades.
The innovative material TUMI has used to form the shell of the case – Self-Reinforced Poly-Propylene (SRPP Ballistic™), is an industrial-grade material found in the automotive and ballistic industries. It’s incredibly hardy and built for impact. But the special way the material has been woven and layered also gives it freedom to flex and bend so it can adapt to its environment.
Users will find a supremely lightweight and durable hard-shell luggage collection that will endure rough-and-tumble travel challenges. That is what actor Alexander Skarsgård (pictured) found when he travelled with a Latitude across multiple destinations.
“The product itself is quite impressive – I even tried to intentionally break the bag a couple of times, with no success of course,” says Skarsgård who starred in the TUMI Latitude promotional video.
Another key asset of this SRPP Ballistic™ material is that it’s incredibly lightweight – in fact, the TUMI Latitude collection is the brand’s lightest series to date. At just over 6lbs – the International Carry-On case weighs the same as a newborn baby.
Of course, there’s more to a good suitcase than it being able to take a knock or two. For starters, there’s the aesthetics. TUMI Latitude’s streamlined design gives the collection a sleek and professional edge, whilst the textured surface and range of colours (black, navy and silver) ensure it’s not without character. There’s even a personalisation patch that allows for monogramming.
Performance is also critical. To this end, the four lightweight spinning wheels and the brand’s patented X-Brace 45® Telescopic Handle System ensure the case glides after its owner with the slightest effort.
The TUMI Latitude collection has also been engineered with easy packing in mind. The cases come with a number of handy interior features from compression straps to internal side pockets. Of course, the luggage also features the classic TUMI hanger bracket, meaning travellers can keep their suits and/or dresses wrinkle-free while travelling.
“With each new collection, TUMI strives to provide our customers with top-of-the-line performance, design and style,” says Victor Sanz, TUMI’s Creative Director. “With Latitude, we wanted to create a collection that offers the best of the best in terms of innovation and aesthetic, which pushed us to improve weight, function, durability, organisation and more.
“We are consistently inspired by global citizens on unique journeys,” says Sanz.
From look and feel to overall performance, TUMI Latitude offers a premium choice of luggage for frequent travellers.
Available in a range of sizes, TUMI Latitude luggage starts from HK$5,380. Available now at TUMI stores in Hong Kong and Macau.
