It is time to pack your bags and get traveling!
TUMI.jpg (13181 bytes) There is only one way to do that and it is with the new Tumi vertical office carry-on.

This wheel-a-way piece of luggage is the business person's dream come true. Large enough to hold a laptop and extra files, it may also be used to store clothing on weekend getaways or short business trips.

What makes this product so unique is its guarantee against defects in materials and workmanship. If the product cannot be repaired, it will be replaced at no cost to you. Any defects in the materials or workmanship will be repaired free of cost -- a lifetime guarantee. This guarantee does not cover product damage from misuse or abuse of the product.

The Tumi vertical office offers a state-of-the-art form of luggage.

This product features durable in-line skate wheels and an aircraft grade aluminum telescoping handle that slides up and down.

Since more and more business people are seeking ways to travel lighter and more efficiently, Tumi has devised a way to meet this traveler's needs.

The vertical office unzips in the front for a comfortable fit for storing a laptop computer. There is also a removable divider panel for papers and files. If you aren't going on a business trip, take out the divider panel and use the space for storing clothing.

Inside the luggage is a spacious main area for a change of clothes.

Since this particular product is geared to the executive traveling on business, it is probably not the best selection for a family of four going to Disney for a vacation. Tumi offers a complete product line for the best choice of luggage for these types of travelers. 

Some of the most unique offerings of the Tumi vertical office are its special internal accessory pockets. These are perfect for storing compact disks, notepads, etc.

There is a ticket pocket located just outside the u-zip pocket for the laptop.

Tumi has implemented its Tumi Tracer program, which helps to reunite you with your bag if it is lost. If a bag does not have a name tag, chances are very likely the product will never be returned to its owner.

The Tumi Tracer program assigns a 20-digit individual product registration number, which is printed on a special plate and affixed to every product. Once the product is registered with Tumi, it is entered into a database. If a person finds a lost Tumi product and calls the toll-free number, Tumi will contact the owner and provide the information on arranging for its return.

These products don't come cheaply. The vertical office is sold for $595. For more information on Tumi, call 800-322-TUMI or visit the product on-line at
