I actually listened to Mom in this case and am glad I did - go figure.,
This review is from: Tumi T-Tech Presidio Park International Business Carry-On (Apparel)
I was first made aware of Tumi products, i.e. travel gear, by my parents and aunts. They all did a lot of travel and Tumi has been their old stand-by for quite sometime now. They all recommended this stuff. Now I have not always listened to my parents and elders, I will be the first to admit that and they can all testify to that fact, but in this case I did, and I must tell you that I am glad I did. (This of course makes me wonder if I shouldn't have listened more in other areas - perhaps my life would not be in such a wretched mess if I had). Anyway... I have taken up the family tradition and the bag being reviewed here, the Tumi T-Tech Presidio is one of my favorites and I keep it in pretty constant use.
I do a lot of traveling, both business and pleasure and pretty much travel around the world. At times I am not sure what country or city I am waking up in. One constant though, at this time, is this bag.
This bag weighs only about 9 ˝ pounds and I must tell you that it actually looks very small. Don't let that fool you though. This little sucker can hold a lot of stuff. If I pack correctly (If you travel a lot, this is a skill you need to learn), I can stash six days of clothing and accessories with no problem. I have it down to the point that I utilize every square inch effectively. Please keep in mind that I am a very light traveler and through the years have learned to leave the junk at home. I carry only what is absolutely necessary and prudent to get the job done. If I need frills, I purchase them where I finally land.
The pulling handle on this works very smoothly and the wheels function better than any bag I have ever owned...there is no problem here what so ever. I love the fold out suit section and the small storage front pocket...it is extremely easy to organize this carry-on.
I can attest to the fact that this thing is well built as it has been bashed and trashed and abused by not only countless baggage handlers (bless their hearts), but by me also. I have yet been able to destroy it.
The bag is attractive without being obtrusive and "showy," keeping a very low profile which is a feature I demand. Showy bags have a way of walking away from you when you are no looking.
I have been very satisfied with this piece of luggage.

well, the world traveler has deemed this to be an appropriate piece of luggage...I must concur, I have had a very similar knock off of Tumi (read, the one the crew carries) and the thing is an iron horse. I'm on year 15+ with this bag...Tumi is quite nice and will suit anyone who so desires. I know the pricing of luggage is kinda crazy for something that we don't really care about, but remember, luggage is like herpes....you keep it forever (thanks Eddie). If you plan to travel more than 5 times in your life, do yourself the favour and get a quality piece. Tumi is the king of all standards, you won't go wrong
and W, noticed ukcolin popping up from time to time, be wary of him, like me, he's a sheep in wolf's clothing....just kidding colin!!! Best to you W, bye for now, -E
