Tumi

Tumi is one of the most well known and tough luggage companies around. You’ll see their gear a lot as you travel. It’s typically not cheap when you shop for their stuff. It is very good quality however. We looked on the Tumi website and we found the whole set of product tests that the company does on their gear. That’s very impressive. You can find a store using their store finder link. http://www.tumi.com/store-finder/
