    Anybody care to share their experience with Tumi?

    I'm eyeing a briefcase/laptop bag, thinking of investing in one, that would hopefully last me at least half a decade (LOL!)

    Currently looking at this one. Any feedback?

    I don't have a Tumi laptop bag but own a T Tech laptop backpack and I can assure you that it's tough.

    I have been using it for nearly ten years now and aside from bringing it to the office every day, it's been to three continents. Other than looking a little dusty, the bag has no damage or scratches at all.

    If my T Tech is this tough, the more expensive Tumi should be even tougher given its ballistic material.

    For the price, I'm really hoping that it is tough! :p LOL! I realized, I rotate my watches and my shoes, pens, I have a few nice ones, but more often than not use what is available, but my bag (and laptop) has always been a constant companion of mine. Im hoping that this will last quite a while. I would've liked the saddleback, but the weight would forever deter me from getting it. So far, this is at the top of my list. Functional and simple.

    @docjbr,

    I am a Tumi fan and will swear by it. Most of my bags are made of ballistic nylon and have zero experience for their leather stuff. What I can say is that they are built to last. Mine are mostly Alpha series and a couple of T-Tech. They are my regular companions on a daily basis and when traveling overseas. I have yet to tear anything.

    for their leather stuff, the closest that I can get is their Tumi wallet. I have been using it daily for over 2 years and it has yet to show any wear nor tear.

    my only concern for leather luggage or a briefcase would be the weight. But if you will be just carrying this from the car to the office and home then it should be fine. Traveling overseas with this? If not then maybe you are good to go.

    Check out the Tumi stores are Greenbelt and BGC. They currently have a sale going on and I remember seeing some Ticon series briefcase on sale. Not sure if there are any left. A phone might do good before going.

    HTH!

    Care to share a pic of your messenger bag, Floyd?

    I'm on the lookout for a messenger bag for my 13-inch MBA that will look good whether I'm wearing jeans or a suit.

    This is the one I have: Rockport Journeyman Briefcase
    It might not look that elegant with a suit though. But I love that it can take a beating and still look good. I have carried 2 macbook pros and an Air in it (work related) with confidence that it wont break.
    There are other more elegant choices, but not for the price of the CopperRiver: Leather Bags | BestLeather.org
    Locally you can checkout Tannery Manila for nice leather bags, but have no feedback yet on their long-term performance: Tannery: Premium line of leather bags and accessories

    I'm currently using TNF Mainframe but I'm plannig to switch to Timbuk2 - the Command model in particular. Where can I get this locally? I've been to BratPack Shangri-La but they only have the classic model of messenger bags. TIA

    Bag given by my wife on Valentine's Day, from Zara Man. Keeps me from bringing too much stuff, just the essentials. It has a shoulder strap, but I've been wanting to carry it by hand. Makes me want to dress spiffy all the time, for some reason, LOL!

    Ha. Just realized I hadn't posted mine. Here it is:

    It's a Sumdex SensaTech ImpactGuard bag for a 13-incher. Nice, lightweight, but sensible notebook protection.

    I use a Capdase laptop sleeve for first layer protection MBP. Actually second layer, as I have a Speck casing. I carry backpacks for daily use - NorthFace Barricade, Surge and Alborz. I have a Delsey Pilot Trolley.
