My Tumi backpack

Tumi Calais

Going for an adventure soon. Figured that I’d need to travel with my notes and laptop and gadgets. I looked at all the bags I had in possession and it struck me… I didn’t have a proper bag that’s practical enough for this!

So the obsession over Tumi backpacks began. I’ve already admired the backpacks at the store for a while now, but never thought I’d need it.

Tried it on at the shop and texted Mama pictures and asked what she thought of it. She’s a fan of Tumi so she was supportive of me getting the bag. The bags look good and they’re very well-made. I tried my luck — I asked if she could get it for me. Nervous ok while waiting for her reply.

At first she was like lol.

Thennn she said she was agreeable!!!

Me asking for something rarely happens. Her saying yes is even more rare!

So we went online to see the options. I was eyeing on the smaller Halle, but Mama thought the Calais is a more practical option. It’s more spacious, has more compartments (also a special padded compartment perfect for my Macbook) and padded straps.

During the weekend we drove to the outlets in KL to look for the bag. Found out that the only store which had the Calais, specifically in Black was the one at KLCC. It was the last one in KL at the moment. Got the bag and got the leather tag embossed in my name.

It’s just the perfect bag.

Mama you are the bomb.

    Could have brought it home for you from the states. BIGGER savings. Anyway, enjoy your Tumi! It will last you a lifetime.

      If I had the need for it when you were gone, I would’ve! At this moment and at the rate that the $ is appreciating, buying it in KL is better.

    Did you get it (your name embossed) at the shop itself? Do they entertain us even if we bought the Tumi bag somewhere else?

      Yes, I did it at the shop. I asked the same question to the SA and he said that they would entertain you if you bought the bag elsewhere.

    Hi Mia! I’m thinking of getting this bag as my laptop/work bag, but the material (nylon) worries me. Do you think it’ll last for everyday use?
