I have carried Tumi luggage in various pieces for over 20 years through most domestic and international airports subjecting these pieces to varying degrees of handling and I still have them all. They had withstood the test of time and travel. My favorite is a carry-on 22 inch with various pockets, expandable, and a top opening which is immeasurably handy, as is the side pocket which holds my hair curler, always a difficult item to pack due to its length. I even have a red set with matching make-up case from the 90's! Can't part with it so it holds out of season items for the next adventure. All in all Tumi luggage has served me
well and I feel confident and proud when carrying any of the pieces as they indicate to the World that I value quality and style.
The TUMI luggage set I bought was made of leather and cloth materials. Its beauty matches the price tag. It is expensive looking. The quality was well made. It was almost the first generation of multi directional spinning wheels. Best of all it has lifetime warranty. It even has a serial number inside each luggage which you can register with TUMI, as a tracker in case the luggage got lost and being reported to TUMI.
Like the facts that they are lightweight and have wheels that move in 2 different modes. Easy to spot on the conveyor belts at the airport is another plus. At my age with thin skin I need a bag that is stable and not fall on my legs.
I have the Tumi Vapor series from 2012 & 2013 and my pieces have held up beautifully with multiple airline trips per year. No dents or dings; most scuffs can be simply wiped away. The pieces are lightweight and the multidirectional wheels roll smoothly without exerting much effort. They still look like new, expect to have them for many many years.
I bought my briefcase over 30 years ago. Some time back one of the zips broke, and recently I had a problem with the strap. After returning it to Tumi, and speaking with the service Dept regarding the age of the briefcase, it was all fixed and quickly returned to me in excellent condition. Such service is very rare in this day and age. Well done Tumi, and thank you.

If you fill both sides of this luggage the top side cannot be leaned against the wall etc. Will not fit any luggage rack when flat. Must be put flat open on floor. Nowhere on the site does it say this. I have 9 pieces of TUMI luggage that I love but I will never buy another. I did not use it within the 30 day limit so cannot return it. Also it has a stick-on with my initials on it that also voids the return. Of course they offered that free so they wouldn't have to accept a return. Purchased online Tumi.com.
I returned a very expensive large luggage because the outside corner came off which was repaired. But the inside strap came with screw returned. And corner was repaired but the inside strap was not the screw. Was just put back in the hole and wasn’t secure. How does something come jury-rigged and returned. Too bad, have always bought TUMI products but disappointed and probably Won’t buy another.
Do NOT buy Tumi luggage, their warranty is poor. I had a very high end carry on size roller bag of theirs that was less than a year out of warranty. The nylon fabric started to split on both sides of the bag (which is disappointing since I used it maybe 8 times/year for short trips). They claimed that they could not repair the bag but would give me a $125 towards the purchase of a new bag, which is $625, BFD. I told them to keep the damaged bag and their offer. I will never buy a Tumi bag again given their poor warranty service. Do yourself a favor and go with Briggs and Riley, unconditional lifetime guarantee!
I have purchased seven Tumi bags and have always been happy but never had a failure, until now. My briefcase front outside pocket zipper broke (un-zipped). I took it to my local Tumi store and they sent it for service. They contacted me saying it was NOT REPAIRABLE. They offered to scrap and give me a coupons towards another ($50 I think) or ship it back. I got it back and took it to a local shoe shop. They replace the zipper for $29 and it looks like new. Is this what “world class service” looks like? NO!!!! Never will I buy another Tumi.
We bought our luggage at Nordstrom in 3-2014, believing we were getting a quality brand. After two years one end of the handle came off in 11-15-16; we sent it back for repairs. The same repair failed again 7-31-19. One end of the handle came off at our departure airport, losing both our scannable luggage tag plus our red leather personal information tag on the same handle. We lost this luggage for 6 days, retrieving it because I had my wife's initials on her TSA luggage lock.
Airline baggage said they tried to use our TUMI serial number to locate the owner, but were unable to obtain our identity, even though we had registered 3 pieces of luggage at the TUMI website. I would not recommend purchase of this luggage. I did also did not find customer service to be responsive to the airline or to us as an ultimate source of lost luggage identification. We are, of course, beyond the 30 day warranty. We feel that we paid an exorbitant price for a poorly constructed piece of luggage for which TUMI has offered no full or partial compensation.
