Tumi Arrive Laguardia Wheeled Brief with Laptop Insert - Investing in Quality
The Tumi Arrive Laguardia Wheeled Brief!
So, having just completed another long haul trip (Los Angeles to Heathrow), I visited my favorite store at both locations and found another bag that tickled my fancy, as usual, I spend around a minimum of 20 minutes with any product that I am looking at, running them through their paces and talking with staff, also checking product prices on the Tumi web site and naturally Amazon.
This one is fairly new to the market, it comes in leather also and naturally with a higher price tag. What I like about this bag is that it has ample storage spaces, so when moving from office/home to the airport I figured the features of this bag would allow me to keep things in order and easy to find or reach, as well as catering for a one night trip!
One word of caution, when reading my reviews I always indicate whether I own the product, have used, borrowed, or merely reviewed, what I must highlight here is that to date I have only ever purchased two small Tumi products from airports, for obvious reasons, that being the cost factor!
So having cleared the decks with that explanation I can announce that this one came in at a rather hefty price at both airports, Heathrow being the highest at Â£745.83 which is around $1221, and Tumi online advertised it for $895, of which Amazon followed suit.
I have not yet made my mind up which wheeled brief to go for as a few other products did catch my eye of which I deemed warranted further investigation, however, this is certainly a front runner in my quest and I would not hesitate in recommending this bag, whether it's for yourself or a gift, either way, you will not be dissapointed.

So what's this one all about?
This is one bag that I have had my eye on for a few months now, one of which is under review and consideration, and may be replacing my roller bag that is being used at this moment in time!
I tried this one out at Heathrow Airport, placed it side by side with my present roller bag, reviewed the exterior/interior and was pretty impressed at what was on offer.
On the outside you get four front zip pockets, still not sure what to put in the vertical compartments but I think I will somehow make good use of them. It comes with the standard carry and telescopic handles, two wheels and protective bottom feet, a TSA approved lock and the ever useful add-a-bag sleeve.
Inside is what left me pretty impressed, you get a file divider that is removable and a 17" laptop section, a nice removable accessory pouch that houses all your cords/plugs etc, zip pockets, media pockets, card pockets, pen loop and a section that is waterproof. The bag has smooth calfskin trim, it's pretty elegant and is constructed from resilient HTLST Polyester fabric.
Understanding that it comes at a fairly hefty price, what I normally do is wait and see if there are any sales that come along, naturally you have to be registered on the Tumi web site to receive these, and believe me, if your into these products, it's worth it. I got my latest Medium Trip Bag at a nice discounted rate! Tumi always has some good deals on the go that run for a month or so.
So if you in for a new roller bag, a replacement bag or looking for that extra special gift, I would give serious consideration to this one, somehow I don't think you would be disappointed!
The Tumi Alpha Briefcase is a versatile and compact briefcase, whether you want to take it on the road or just for the every day office use it will serve you well. With external zip pockets, the compulsory carry handle and telescopic handle, add-a-bag sleeve and a removable TSA approved lock to the removable file dividers that comes with a laptop compartment, internal zip and open pockets, as well as an elastic and card pocket and pen-leash, pen loops.
This is a great little stylish companion that will keep your file in orders and have everything ready at hand.
This compact wheeled duffel bag is a great overnight or even weekend bag, for me, I would probably get away with a three day trip with this one. The main compartment is nice and big, the way I fold my belongings and the use of every nook and nanny is why I am confident I can get at least three days out of this guy!
The exterior storage pockets are especially handy for all those last minute added items as well as those immediate need to have things. The bag is made from the Tumi signature ballistic nylon , has ample zip and open pockets and comes with all the other features that you come to expect in a Tumi bag. A nice bag for a nice price!
