Tumi x Public School
Last month I travelled to New York and had the opportunity to also visit Rome while I was out there. I ended up being away for 2 weeks in total and needed a suitcase to be able to carry all my necessary personal items while also being dynamic and robust during travels. I used one of Tumi x Public School’s collaborative suitcases that was an absolute dream to use. The limited-edition collection is made from lightweight yet durable polypropylene, and features an adjustable-height telescoping handle, dual-spinning wheels and interior organisation including a detachable laundry bag, tie-down straps and a hanger bracket.
Made with Tegris – a revolutionary, polypropylene thermoplastic composite material – that is incredibly lightweight and exceptionally durable offering unparalleled strength and impact resistance. Tumi has a great travel tracker programme incase you (or your airline) loses your case. Each case includes a unique 20-digit product number printed on a special metal plate affixed to the side that once entered into the Tracer database can help in the recovery of lost or stolen items.
The spacious compartments allowed for ample storage, fitting in two suits and an extra pair of shoes. I even ended up getting an extra pair that I managed to fit for on the way back. The detachable laundry bag is exceptionally useful to store dirties before you manage to get them cleaned. Once packed and on the move, it was extremely smooth to navigate with the rubber wheels and with the 360 rotation you can glide it along the airport terminal with ease. New York and Rome where different matters, and when needing to go along the streets for a short while, despite the bumpy surfaces, the case withstood a fair metropolitan beating. I’m sure it can take more, and I’m looking forward to taking it back out on my next adventures.
