Tumi redefines its classic Alpha collection with new release set for Cannes
Tumi’s classic Alpha collection is introducing the next evolution of its iconic ballistic nylon with the launch of Alpha Lightweight. Combining the abrasion-resistant FXT ballistic nylon with the hard sided, lightweight construction of the Vapor collection, Alpha Lightweight redefines a Tumi classic.
Setting a new standard in travel, Alpha Lightweight combines the best of both worlds—hard and soft sided cases—by including an exterior front pocket and an Add-A-Bag hook. Designed for superior performance, Alpha Lightweight features the recognizable U-zip pockets and Omega zippers to the easy-to-maneuver four-wheel and X-brace 45™ handle systems. The exterior pocket provides easy access to documents, or simply a place to pack last minute items.
Layered behind the ballistic are polypropylene sheets ensuring unfailing, bend-but-not-break security for the contents. Polypropylene bumper guards aid against surface scratches while providing extra durability and 360 degrees of protection. A full-length suit-carrier is zipped inside for a worry and wrinkle-free business trip. A Tumi hanger and use-your-own bracket is nestled inside, safely holding up to four hangers.
Alpha Lightweight will be offered in a variety of sizes for all packing needs: 20”, 21”, 25”, 27” and 29”. The collection will be available in late autumn 2012 in Black, Espresso and Spruce colors at TFWA World Exhibition (stand RG14, Riviera Village), at Tumi stores worldwide and at www.tumi.com.
