The TUMI backpack is something that most people can only dream of getting their hands on. Perhaps that's not entirely true, as it's certainly not impossible to get your hands on one of these if you really want one. The thing that sets them apart is that they are well made and designed to fit your needs. The company has so many different styles of backpacks that you can find something to fit your needs, no matter what they are. Make no mistake about it, it will set you back a bit if you want to purchase one of these for yourself. That said, you're definitely getting your money's worth and you'll have a backpack that works well for all of your travel needs for many years into the future. If you really want a TUMI backpack and you want to tailor it to fit everything that works best for you, here are the five best backpacks made by the company that your money can buy.
5. TUMI Voyageur Brooklyn Double Compartment Backpack in Black ($315)
This bag is made out of nylon and weighs less than 2 pounds when empty. Better still, it can fit a 15” laptop with relative ease, giving you plenty of flexibility when it comes to your travel plans. Another thing that genuinely sets it apart is the fact that in addition to having a dedicated compartment for your laptop, it has a completely separate compartment for things that you don't want to put with anything else, like shoes. It makes it the perfect bag for traveling but it can just as easily be used as a daily carrier when you're traveling back and forth from work to the gym and back home again. Of course, there are also plenty of other pockets, both interior and exterior, that give you a chance to carry just about anything you want with ease. It's also small enough that it can be used as a carry-on for most airlines, yet big enough that you don't feel like you are being forced to cram everything in there without enough room left to even get the compartments zipped properly. It really does give you the best of both worlds.
4. TUMI Alpha Bravo Infantry 2-in-1 Backpack, Spruce ($345)
This is one of the company's more popular backpacks because of both its styling and the fact that it's made from sustainable, recycled materials. Since it's constructed from ballistic nylon, it's more than durable enough to handle your outdoor adventures while simultaneously giving you a bag that you can carry your everyday essentials in. It has a drawstring in the front that allows you to tighten or loosen it in order to accommodate whatever you're carrying as well as a separate, detachable compartment at the bottom that's perfect for smaller items such as a comb, lip balm or even a small first aid kit. Like many of the other backpacks from the company, it's also large enough to carry a 15” laptop and has its own separate compartment for exactly this type of thing.
3. TUMI Alpha 3 TUMI Brief Pack, Black ($575)
This is a versatile backpack that's perfect for work, but it also works just as well outside the office. Made from ballistic nylon, you can carry a 15” laptop in its own dedicated compartment while simultaneously having a separate compartment for your tablet. Even with both of these things in place, there is still more than enough room for anything else that you might consider essential for your trip on any given day. In fact, there are plenty of interior and exterior pockets that allow you to carefully organize these essentials so you always know where everything is and everything is always in its place. There is also a water resistant compartment on the side of the backpack designed specifically for an umbrella or water bottle. Don't worry, even if it gets wet, the water won't get to your tablet or your laptop. That's how well this particular backpack is constructed. The backpack also comes in two other colors in addition to standard black, anthracite and storm blue. This gives you some color options instead of forcing you to resort to a single color. In short, it's perfect for people that may not be huge fans of black in everything that they purchase. Those who love a little color are sure to be especially fond of the storm blue variety.
2. TUMI Voyageur Carson Backpack, Black ($395)
Who doesn't want a compact yet spacious bag that's capable of carrying all of the everyday essentials without making you feel like you're carrying half your house around with you everyday? This bag lets you carry your laptop and also provides plenty of room for a change of clothes, your water bottle and anything else that you deem necessary for the day. It's a lot bigger on the inside than it actually looks on the outside, giving you an opportunity to comfortably carry a lot of things without feeling weighed down in the process.
1. TUMI Alpha Bravo Sheppard Deluxe Brief Pack, Graphite ($475)
If you're looking for an all-around solid backpack that offers something for everyone, this one is hard to beat. It can carry both a 15” laptop and iPad at the same time, as well as all of your other essentials for work and play. It has numerous interior and exterior pockets that help you stay organized and it's durably made. It also has a handle on the top that allows for easy carrying as well as a padded shoulder strap that provides access to the main compartment without forcing you to take the bag off your shoulder. It also has a water-resistant separate compartment for your umbrella or your water bottle, providing you with a good all-around bag that can be used in a number of different situations.
