TUMI, the leading international brand of premium travel, business and lifestyle accessories, announces the launch of TUMI V3 for Fall 2016. The V3 collection, TUMI’s lightest-ever hardside luggage offering, will raise the bar for design and technology excellence and set a new standard for the future of travel.
A clear-cut expression and display of TUMI’s design leadership, V3 showcases a balance between performance, structure, strength and aerodynamics. Designed for travelers who value TUMI for its time-tested endurance, these bags are constructed from a multi-layer polycarbonate shell, engineered to offer unparalleled strength and impact resistance at a very light weight. The flexibility of the material allows for maximum resistance to cold impact cracking and corner crushing, while the contoured exterior ensures resiliency and reduces signs of wear. Raised, molded rubber bumpers placed on either sides of the case add additional protection to the exterior, making these wheelaways the consummate travel companion for any adventure.
The V3 cases will be offered in the full range of carry-on and check-in pieces, ranging from a Compact Four-Wheeled Carry-On through a Worldwide Trip Packing Case. All styles will feature integrated low-profile TSA locks, TUMI Tracer®, retractable molded top and side carry handles, and a patented X-Brace 45® telescoping handle system crafted from lightweight-yet sturdy aircraft-grade aluminum, which contributes to the reduced weight of the bags. The four dual-spinning recessed wheels are constructed to offer effortless mobility and provide greater packing capacity inside. These styles will be offered in a rich, autumnal color palette including, Black, Steel Blue, Hunter, Merlot and Waterfall Stripe (not shown). The V3 collection will retail for $425-$625 at TUMI retail stores worldwide and on TUMI.com beginning July 2016.
