Made With Durable Carbon Fiber + Ballistic Nylon

This bag is made with a mix of 2 materials. Real CX6 carbon fiber, a unique flexible carbon fiber by Washington based Carbitex. Additionally, the bag is made TUMI's FXT®, an ultra-durable ballistic nylon.

Add-a-bag System

Quickly and easily add another travel piece or business case using the TUMI patented Add-A-Bag hook with secure fastened tab closure that holds in excess of 200 pounds. Also, many TUMI business cases and totes feature a back sleeve that slips over extended luggage handles allowing you to stack and carry heavier bags on your wheeled luggage. Used together, these systems allow travelers to carry 2 or even 3 items at the same time, effortlessly in one hand.

FXT Ballistic®

TUMI was the first to bring ballistic nylon to the consumer market over 30 years ago. Now they have perfected it with their exclusive FXT ballistic fabric, which combines a unique weave and a special coating to make it ultra-tough and virtually abrasion proof.


TUMI's T-Pass® allows you to breeze through airport security hassle-free. T-Pass computer cases and sleeves are designed to meet the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) technical requirements for "checkpoint friendly" bags by providing a clear scan of your computer without removing it from the case. NOTE: The TSA reserves the right to ask anyone to remove a computer from its case, or re-screen any bag or laptop regardless of the design of the case.

TUMI Tracer

The TUMI Tracer® is an exclusive, complimentary program that helps reunite TUMI customers with their lost or stolen items. The core of the program is a unique 20-digit individual product number printed on a special metal plate that is permanently affixed to TUMI products. That number, along with the owner's contact information, is entered into the TUMI Tracer database when a bag is registered with them, and used to help aid in the recovery of lost or stolen items that are reported to them.

Waterproof Pocket

This specially-designed pocket is ideal for keeping wet and damp items, including umbrellas, water bottles and workout clothes, separate from the other contents of the bag.

eReader Compartment

This item has a pocket or compartment that is designed to hold eReaders including the iPad™, Kindle™ and Nook™.
