Tumi and McLaren fans were in for a treat when the lifestyle brand and the supercar marque released a new collection earlier this year. Now, the collab continues as the two roll out yet another set of travel apparel.

There are nine new products in total. Highlighting the lineup is the Halo Backpack and the M-Tech Soft Satchel. The former is designed to fit a 14-inch laptop and some accessories, and also has a built-in USB port for on-the-go charging. The latter is a portable bag that offers “a certain ease as well as a flexibile packing capacity and universal appeal.”

There are also three compact carriers. The universal Brox Slim Utility Pouch pictured above is for everyday essentials. The Fuel Crossbody offers hands-free wearability and can be worn across the body or around the waist. The versatile Remex Accessory Kit, meanwhile, is small enough to bring on vacations, to the gym, or to the office.

These additional pieces are all about making those moments of travel and reconnection, that we’ve all been yearning for, truly special.”
