Reply To: Tumi luggage – what’s the big deal?

Back to Forum


Just curious.

I see increasing amounts of Tumi luggage on my travels but it seems to me, ridiculously expensive (£500 for a medium sized roll along for example).

Why is it so expensive? Is it really worth it or has it just become a status symbol?

Am I missing something – maybe a lifetime guarantee perhaps?

For the record, my regular roll along, 4 wheel, hard sided, was bought at TK Maxx for £80.00 3 years ago and travels around the world with me both as cabin and hold luggage – it performs beautifully and although it bears a few scratches, its still more or less perfect.
