    Default Tumi Gemini Large Flap Bag



    The bags in the Gemini collection by Tumi are great for everyday, comfortable and their shapes are classic. And this season's colors are white, brown and bright green. I just got the large Gemini Flap Bag in green and although green bags usually don't appeal to me, this one does. It is definitely a bag that will only come out of the closet for spring and summer though as it's brightness doesn't fit into any fall or winter color trends.

    As for the bag itself, I absolutely love the shape and the two cute pockets in the front. there's even a nice exterior back pocket for quick access to whatever. And the best part is the leather! It's made from tumbled leather with vachetta trim and I must say that it is extremely soft and supple. What's also great is the thick shoulder strap as it will take forever to wear. Featured inside are a nylon interior, a zippered pocket with a Tumi leather tag, a cell pocket and a key ring. Also, opening and closing the front flap and small pockets couldn't be easier. The magnetic closure is so convenient and quick, yet secure as opposed to a buckle closure, which can be annoying to open and close constantly. With that said, the quality of the bag is definitely worth the $445 price tag!

    I'm not a big fan of Tumi... their bags look like they were just slapped together or something. Is that just me? LOL!

    It sort of looks like something from JCPenny or Sears, IMHO.

    The wonderful people over at Tumi were so kind enough to send us this new Tumi Gemini Flap bag for a review.

    Today I checked out the other bags in this collection when I was at the mall, and discovered the assortment of Gemini bags: bucket bags, north/south totes, shoulder bags, and handbags. Available in green, honey brown, black or (my favorite) white. Price range is very reasonable, taking into consideration quality and function.


    I like the off white color. And about the quality of the bag.. I would rather have this Tumi, than say, a Dooney.

    ^^^ LOL! Well, I'm sure anything is better than a Dooney (although Dooney really isn't too bad when it comes to the quality of construction). I wasn't really saying that they were cheaply made... its just the way they look, you know what I mean? I guess I just don't like the plain edges and the way all of their bags close with a little strip that fits into a loop like that.

    I love Tumi for the travel bags, not really sure if I would carry it as an everyday purse.

    the yellow one is pretty cool though.

    No for me. I'd rather spend the $300-500 elsewhere. The Tumi bags just aren't very interesting. The contrast top stitching on most of the items looks cheap, IMO. However, the white Gemini Flap bag with black edging has the some appeal but maybe because it reminds me of Valextra.

    I almost liked the Chatham Tote North but Tumi put an odd, seemingly random, paisley insert. It reminds me of the Lanvin Kentucky except the outside is bold blue and the inside is bright green. Almost Tumi, almost.

    TUMI is better off sticking with men's bags and luggage, IMO!

    First time I heard of them and had a look, not that great for the prices they are offering!
