Tumi's new Georgetown collection of women's travel accessories features Tumi's signature wear-resistant ballistic nylon as well as sophisticated detailing like embossed leather trim and nickel hardware. The Burleith boarding tote, which measures 19 inches by 13-1/2 inches, is the perfect size to carry aboard a plane without feeling weighted down. 

The bag has front and back zip pockets as well as open pockets on both sides, and protective bottom feet minimize abrasion of the bag's fabric. The top-zippered closure opens to reveal a roomy interior, which is elegantly lined with a smooth, tonal fabric. The inside of the bag is cleverly designed to keep travelers organized, with a built-in key ring and pen loops, as well as a jewelry pocket, a large zippered pocket, and open pockets. 

The Burleith's long, rounded handles give it an of-the-moment feel, and the bag's clean lines and subtle fabric will ensure that the recipient gets years of use out of the piece. $495.
