TUMI’s 19 Degree is the brand’s first-ever aluminium luggage line. Distinctive, strikingly modern and luxe, its exceptional cutting-edge design boasts sculpted angles and meticulously-crafted aluminium. This is luggage that doesn’t just perform as it should, but looks cool, too.


Each piece comes with a retractable moulded top and side carry handles wrapped with leather detailing, as well as a patented X-Brace 45 telescopic handle system crafted from lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminium so that it is sturdy and ergonomic. It also comes with four dual-spinning recessed wheels, making all the cases very easy to manoeuvre.

To keep your baggage secure, each case comes with low-profile TSA locks and a dedicated 20-digit code that increases the chances of you reuniting with your luggage should it get lost. How it works: Using the code, you register your contact details with TUMI. In case of lost baggage, the TUMI Tracer team will contact you if your bag has been found.


There are four sizes of 19 Degree packers for different travel needs, ranging from an International Carry-On to an Extended Trip Packing Case. The interior of each piece is nothing short of luxurious, with a lightweight lining and useful organisation features. The 19 Degree range is priced between $995 and $1,395, and available in silver and matte black.
