Tumi have unveiled its pro-level Esports line of bags and accessories. Welcoming in a new client base, Tumi consulted with numerous industry experts from game developers to professional esports athletes to help design top-of-the-line bags that meet, if not exceed, the needs of today’s gamers like none before.

True to Tumi’s DNA, each style has been built to last with the keenest eye for detail and superior functionality. From the aluminum zippers to the unique organization systems, every aspect and touchpoint was created to maximize functionality. The key outlook being that that equipment athletes and hobbyists rely on should to survive every journey, whether that’s on the road, behind the desk or being cheered on by virtual crowds.

Various components of this collection have been crafted with high-performance recycled materials. Each piece is built to last, not only protecting the gear that matters most, but also the world’s natural resources. The use of abrasion-resistant coatings and signature ballistic nylon deliver superior durability.

The flagship offering in the collection is the Esports Large Pro Backpack, designed with elite esports athletes in mind but with functionality equally fit for players at any level. The unique collapsible shelves optimize organization and protection. The backpack also features a padded, expandable back pocket to hold multiple keyboards, a mouse, and other valuable tech essentials, while an additional padded laptop sleeve is located in the interior. A designated molded pocket on the top gives protection and quick access to headphones. Drives and other similarly sized accessories can be secured in the rigid, molded side pockets while the integrated USB port will help keep gamers powered on the go.

Other elements of the collection include compact designs including the Pro Sling, Pro Accessories Case, and Pro Crossbody, with dimensions perfect for a handheld gaming console. Additionally, there is a designated pocket that holds AirPods or wireless earbuds. Now more than ever, we see gaming as an outlet to escape our realities, striving to be the champions we all want to be.  And even for gaming at home, the ample pocket space and purposeful design allow for staying organized when off the road.
