March break is right around the corner and as we gear up to go on vacation we can't help but get excited about Tumi's first ever aluminum luggage collection. Aptly named 19 Degree, the range literally puts a twist in luggage design with strategically sculpted angles set against meticulously-crafted aluminium. These contours highlight the profile of the suitcase and give a sense of fluidity. A truly striking combination of luxury, art and innovation the Tumi 19 Degree collection represents the pinnacle of hardside luggage and elevates the travel experience.
These Tumi travel cases aren’t just pretty to look at; they’re functional and tough, too. With an outer shell constructed of premium-grade aluminum these suitcases will withstand even the most abusive airline luggage handlers. Over time and use, as with leather, the aluminum will develop a unique patina...a testament to your relentless pursuit of travel. Rest assured the contents of your Tumi bag will always be safe thanks to the reinforced frame-case design - with two snap closures for the carry-on luggage size and three snap closures for the check-in sizes. For additional protection, all the cases come with die-cast corner caps. Maneuvering these cases is effortless with four dual-spinning recessed wheels and a 3-stage push-button pull-up handle. Last but not least, Tumi has expertly appointed the interior of these travel cases with aesthetic and organisational features; an attention to detail we have come to expect from one of the best luggage brands in the world. The Tumi 19 Degree Aluminum Collection is available at Betty Hemmings Leathergoods, the oldest Tumi luggage dealer in Canada. We offer the full range of carry-on and check-in sizes in both matte black and silver. Shop online or in the Toronto boutique.
