The Strongest Lightweight Luggage in the World. By Tumi.

Tumi is one of those rare innovators in today’s luxury goods market, rather than imposing a design ethos the brand listens to its devotees and develops with its market’s most urgent needs in mind. The company discovered that we all have four simple requests when travelling, we require luggage that is stylish, strong, agile and above all light. With today’s increasing weight restrictions the weight of one’s suitcase is all important, with some injection moulded plastic suitcases checking in at nearly the limit before they are packed.

Staying true to its heritage of design innovation, technological advancement and product integrity, Tumi will debut the TEGRA-LITE ™ collection for Spring 2012. Tumi TEGRA-LITE ™ combines the highest levels of durability and impact resistance in a protective, hardside case with the ultimate in lightweight ease and manoeuvrability.

TEGRA-LITE ™ made from Tegris™, is a revolutionary polypropylene thermoplastic composite material created by Milliken® for use in lifesaving armour, NASCAR race cars and protective gear for NFL players. It is an extruded filament that can be woven into fabric and then pressed into hard sheets. The Tumi/Milliken partnership on Tegris™, has been in development for several years; the product is exclusive to Tumi for travel and accessory products around the world. Tegris™, provides up to 15X the impact resistance of typical thermoplastics composites and because it is 100% polypropylene, Tegris™, offers significant weight reduction compared to other higher density, glass-filled composites.

The TEGRA-LITE ™ collection includes two-wheeled and four-wheeled carry-ons and four-wheeled packing cases all with de rigueur skater wheels.
