Tumi is celebrating 40 years of design and product innovation with a collection called 1975, in homage to its founding year.

This exclusive new commemorative limited edition totals 1,975 pieces.

Designed and made in the US, the limited-edition collection is crafted from natural full grain American cowhide leather, inspired by the type Tumi imported from South America in the early years, and the brand‘s signature ballistic nylon.

Available in travel retail and domestic outlets from April 2015, 1975 Collection styles include an International Carry-On, Slim Brief, Rucksack Backpack and Square Duffel. Each style bears a special limited-edition embossed number.

The Square Duffel comes in all-leather or ballistic nylon with leather

The four-wheeled International 20in Carry-On (55050) has double leather straps with buckle closure, a front zip pocket, two side grab-handles and front and back bumper guards for added protection. Its spacious interior features two hanging flap pockets and a zipped U-pocket compartment.

The Square Duffel (55052) has a front zip pocket, a 145cm adjustable shoulder strap and two side grab handles. Inside there is a pocket for storing accessories or electronics. It is offered in either all-leather or ballistic nylon with leather. 

The Slim Portfolio (55060) and Slim Brief (55053), crafted of supple cowhide leather, mirror the briefcase silhouettes introduced in 1975.

The contemporary, multi-functional Slim Portfolio is a folio case with retractable handles for carrying by hand or under the arm. Interior features include a zip pocket, and multiple open pockets for phone and business accessories, as well as an exterior zip pocket.

The Slim Brief features a large interior zip pocket and an open pocket, numerous exterior pockets, and an adjustable and removable shoulder strap.

The New Style Crossbody (55055) and simple leather Flap Crossbody (55056) are constructed from ballistic nylon and leather. With several pockets for organizing electronics and small accessories, including two media pockets in the interior of the top zip pocket, and a 135cm adjustable strap, the bag is easy to carry and practical.

Available in tan leather, the Day Tote (55061) has a large main compartment with an easily removable drop-in, top-zip ballistic liner. 

The Rucksack Backpack (55051) is utilitarian in design. It can be carried by hand with two top grab handles or worn over the shoulders with adjustable padded straps. Exterior pockets offer quick and easy access to small essentials and an Add-a-Bag strap means the backpack can be slipped over extended luggage handles to stack on top of wheeled luggage. It accommodates files and documents, with a separate media zip pocket for safeguarding a tablet or other electronics.

Stamped with the Tumi emblem, the Passport Cover (55070) holds travel documents, while the Travel Kit (55057) has an open interior that can hold toiletry essentials, as well as an exterior front zip pocket.
