(photos: TUMI) TUMI Tegra-Lite Luggage | from US$595.00 | www.tumi.com
despite my anti-traveling sentiment, i still have a soft spot for travel luggage and this is especially true if the luggage bears a sleek look or are crafted from some exotic materials (animals not included, though). the TUMI Tegra-Lite Luggage collection is just one those that dazzles in my travel luggage dictionary. this hard shell travel case is made Tegris, a polypropylene thermoplastic composite material that has seen application in armor, NASCAR race cars, as well as protective football gear. available exclusively to TUMI, whom naturally took advantage of the superior strength and lightweight properties to present these travel luggage to protect your belongings while you jet set around. i will be honest: it was love at first sight for me. other features include TSA integrated locks, protective bumpers, X-Brace 45 handle system, removable garment sleeve, accessory pockets and tie-down straps. expect the TUMI Tegra-Lite Luggage collection to drop at TUMI stores (both on and offline) this spring with a price ranging between $595 to $795. click on the above image for a larger view.
