Celebrating over a decade of innovation and utilitarian design, TUMI's latest evolution of Alpha Bravo comprises over two dozen entirely new styles ranging from backpacks to totes and briefs focused on modularity, sustainability, and durability. Many styles feature a recycled ballistic nylon fabric and all are compatible with the brand’s new TUMI+ travel accessories. These cleverly designed accessories, from modular pouches to detachable water bottle holders, can be attached to the interior or exterior of bags using daisy chains, G-hooks and carabiners to enhance functionality. In addition to the Alpha Bravo core collection, TUMI has also released a time-limited Capsule made from a durable ripstop that takes its cues from the collection’s military-inspired heritage.
