Per­fect for any jour­ney

The new TUMI Lat­i­tude col­lec­tion is the light­est hard-shell lug­gage so­lu­tion to date

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - TUMI INTRODUCES THE NEW TRAVEL COMPANION -

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.
