Tumi’s 19 degree range adds suitcases made from recycled materials – Robb Report



Hitting the road with recycled luggage is one way to minimize your travel footprint. And with the latest version of Tumi, you’ll enjoy top-notch protection as well as your durability credibility.

On Thursday, the luxury suitcase maker expanded its 19 Degree range with several alternative versions of its best-selling luggage, each with recycled polycarbonate shells. The new range includes two hand luggage, a trunk, a compact brief and three sizes of packing cases. Not only are the cases made with over 90% recycled material, their lightweight and flexible durability is attributed to their polycarbonate composition. And for added security, each suitcase sports a PROTX2 antimicrobial coating on its liner, shells, zippers and handles to help prevent bacteria growth and fight odors. Travelers will also get the added benefit of USB chargers newly incorporated into Tumi’s continental and global carry-on baggage for power-ups on the go.

The carry-on size baggage collection at check-in begins with the Small Compact Brief, which comes with a free monogram. Available only in black, the case weighs 7.1 lbs and is 16 inches high, 14 inches wide, and 8 inches deep. For extra space, the Short Trip Expandable Packing Case and International Expandable Carry-On Luggage provide travelers with a maximum depth of 13 inches for packing. And among the larger luggage available in the new collection is the Rolling Roller Trunk and Extended Travel Expandable Packing Case, which each range from 31.25 inches tall to 20 inches wide. Depending on the style, several cases are available in up to three colors, including berry and iron.

The new suitcases from the Recycled Collection also include many of the same interior and exterior features as the original 19-degree styles. On the outside, travelers will still find the integrated TSA lock, four dual wheels, and a luggage tag among the essentials. Interiors also include a Tumi tracer, hanger bracket, two-compartment zip pockets and compression straps. Travel has changed dramatically over the past year and Tumi’s Creative Director Victor Sanz confirms that the recycled styles were designed with protection in mind. “Thinking for a moment about how the world has changed and recognizing what is really important, Tumi interpreted the idea of ​​outer protection from what can and cannot be seen,” Sanz said in a statement on the new collection.

For all those who will be hitting the road soon, you can now purchase the 19 Degree collection made of over 90% recycled materials at Tumi’s website.
