TUMI just unveiled its latest luggage collection, Latitude and we’re loving it. As frequent travellers, we know that the ideal suitcase is lightweight yet durable enough to withstand over-enthusiastic airport handlers and the hustle and bustle of travelling. Too many times, we’ve lugged our luggage off the airport carousel only to find it has been thrown around and dented.
TUMI’s Latitude, the brand’s newest and lightest premium hard-shell luggage collection, promises that such dents will be a thing of the past.
Latitude’s outer case is constructed from TUMI’s innovative Self-Reinforced Poly-Propylene (SRPP Ballistic), an ultra-durable material constructed from 100 per cent polypropylene composite. To provide even more support and rigidity, TUMI incorporated reinforcement rods inside the shell.
Together, these features work to make sure that Latitude will come off the plane in one piece.
TUMI also engineered the Latitude collection with easy packing in mind. All of the luggage pieces include tie-down straps, a hanger bracket, multiple pockets for those who like to be organised, and more.
Latitude also features a newly engineered wheel system designed to withstand years of use, integrated low profile TSA locks, TUMI Tracer to ensure you never lose your luggage, and soft-touch top and side handles.
Finally, Latitude is equipped with a patented X-Brace 45 telescoping handle system that forms a protective and shock-impact-absorbing structure around the telescoping handle within the case. The system, which is crafted from aircraft-grade aluminium, works to eliminate damage to the handle while also reducing the overall weight of the case.
The Ultimate Latitude Test
TUMI took it upon themselves to put Latitude to the ultimate test: an epic journey around the world on a single degree of latitude with actor Alexander Skarsgård.
Skarsgård and his Latitude luggage started in Hungary, where Latitude is created. From there they traveled to Lake Como, Italy, Washington State in the U.S.A., Mongolia, and all the way back to Hungary. Needless to say, even a journey as epic as this one was nothing the Latitude couldn’t handle.
Latitude is available in a range of carry-on and check-in sizes, which includes an International Carry-On, Short Trip Packing Case and Extended Trip Packing Case.
These styles are offered in Black, Navy and Silver, and retail from $1,090 onward.
