The movie Bullet Train starring Brad Pitt gave Tumi’s 19 Degree Aluminum Briefcase a well-deserved airtime. Playing a leading role in the action-packed film, the Tumi briefcase demonstrated its durability, sturdiness and trustworthiness throughout the film and proved its mettle, especially as a travel piece.
I first learned of the brand Tumi when my mum returned from a trip to the States with Tumi’s Women's Voyageur Troy Crossbody. Unfortunately (or fortunately), the bag she brought overseas broke, and she replaced it with a Tumi bag. It was then I learned about this American brand. Tumi checked all the boxes in what a travel day bag should have: functional, durable, lightweight, and it was easy to match. Upon her return, she sang praises of her new bag and continued using it regularly back home and for her subsequent travels.
At the same time, I also started looking for a proper work backpack that could hold my 15-inch laptop and other necessities such as an umbrella, water bottle, makeup pouch, scarf/cardigan and wallet. Then, a friend started regaling the joys of using Tumi bags. Apart from being a decent work bag in terms of looks, Tumi bags typically come with useful compartments and zips to store all the little things we need. According to their website, their bags undergo stringent tests in which they "obsess over creating pieces that constantly exceed expectations, down to the smallest detail.”
Based on my research, here are some of the best Tumi buys you can source from Amazon, Lazada and Shopee at very attractive prices. Best of all, most of them have free international delivery. So happy shopping and travelling!
