Whether you’re flying to the Mediterranean or jetting off to New York City, the T-Tech collection by Tumi is the ultimate traveling companion. This new luggage collection (starts at Php 24,790 / US$509) has a set of hard cases that is relatively lightweight but very strong and durable. It’s so sturdy that even if you put 100 pounds of weight and take it for an eight-hour walk, its wheel system will still roll smoothly.
It doesn’t hurt to know that many famous personalities use Tumi bags as well — one of whom is President Barack Obama, who carries around the Tumi Alpha Leather Briefcase.
Tumi T-Tech is available at the Travel Club branches in the Power Plant Mall, Ayala Center in Glorietta 4, Alabang Town Center, Ayala Center Cebu, SM Mall of Asia, Trinoma, Shangri-La and Flight 360 at the Podium.
