Luxury suitcase manufacturer TUMI has unveiled its esports-themed line of bags and accessories.
The collection will consist of the Esports Large Pro Backpack, Pro Sling, Pro Accessories Case, and Pro Crossbody.
Victor Sanz, Creative Director at TUMI, commented: “Our Global Citizens are engaged in a vast array of pursuits, beyond routine work and travel. For this collection, we looked towards those whose passion is gaming — just as innovation is ours. We channelled that vigour to create the ultimate collection for every gamer.”
According to the release, the collection was ‘designed with elite esports athletes in mind’ and ‘to maximise functionality’. The backpack features collapsible shelves, an expandable back pocket to hold multiple keyboards and a mouse, a padded laptop sleeve and an integrated USB port. TUMI’s other three models have dimensions suited for a handheld gaming console.
The manufacturer has also said that it consulted its designs with a number of industry experts, including game developers and professional esports athletes.
Sanz added: “Now more than ever, we see gaming as an outlet to escape our realities, striving to be the champions we all want to be. So, with guidance from those who know the industry best, we immersed ourselves into the gaming community and created innovative products they haven’t been given yet. Each element was obsessed over and engineered to deliver optimised utility and enhance every champion’s journey.”
Esports Insider says: Following the success of esports watch collections by Gucci and Garmin, TUMI brings something new to the table. A collection of high-quality bags tailored specifically for the needs of frequently travelling esports players will be surely appreciated by many.
