As the holiday season approaches, the question of luggage arises. Whether it’s a trip to Côte d’Azur or Bodrum- a durable, light and beautiful suitcase is essential for a great holiday.
The lightest TUMI luggage collection, Latitude, has arrived and it defies durability and engineering standards. The brand has crafted Latitude from Self-Reinforced Poly-Propylene (SRPP Ballistic)- an ultra-durable material that is both lightweight and incredibly strong. Its unique construction allows it to perform in any environment, no matter the landscape or climate.
Latitude uses a layer method that provides strength, durability, and flexibility. Its material, constructed out of a 100% polypropylene composite, achieves maximum strength by being woven into a fabric layer. The layers are then consolidated into sheets, which are placed into a custom press; the more layers used, the stronger the shell is. Sporting equipment, personal protection, and auto industries often use this type of layered woven material.
TUMI’s Latitude features a patented X-Brace 45® telescoping handle system crafted from lightweight-yet-sturdy aircraft-grade aluminium. As a result, this system forms a protective, shock-impact-absorbing structure around the telescoping handle tubes within the case. Therefore, eliminating damage to the handle system while reducing the overall weight of the case.Additionally, TUMI has designed a newly engineered wheel system. These wheels feature a wide inner-spoke system with the lower centre of gravity that allows for a stable multi-directional navigation. The rigid framing houses the wheels for extra protection and years of use. In other words, you will no longer be falling over your suitcase.
Latitude will launch in a range of carry-on and check-in sizes in black, navy and silver. And it will retail for €645-795 at TUMI retail stores worldwide and on their website.
