When it comes to luggage, we have a soft spot for TUMI‘s luxury offerings. The American brand has been in the business of safeguarding your belongings for 51 years and has built quite the sturdy reputation for itself on the back of its signature lightweight ballistic nylon material.
TUMI recently enlisted the help of a couple of celebrities – Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, professional skateboarder Mark Gonzalez and hat maker Nick Fouquet, to name a few – to put its new 19 Degree Collection to the test in their travels.
While Hamilton’s and Fouquet’s video endorsements were beautiful, if not typical, we thoroughly enjoyed Gonzalez’s quirky skating adventures with his own 19 Degree luggage. Check out his story in the video below, which might involve a luggage being used to grind a staircase rail.
As you can tell, the 19 Degree Collection is tough and durable thanks to the lightweight polycarbonate construction. The exterior has been wrapped in a special film that reflects available light when the luggage is being wheeled, giving off a luxurious sheen.
But it is the design aesthetic that sets the 19 Degree Collection apart. Fashion, design and art combine beautifully on the chassis, with soft curves and sharp angles making sure that your luggage will always stand out on the baggage carousel.
Available in a variety of sizes, all the models in the collection feature TSA-compliant locks, TUMI’s tracer and a patented X-brace 45 telescoping handle system crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum.
