Review: TUMI ID Lock Passport Case


The following review is part of the Back to Business special.


TUMI ID Lock Passport Case

There is one thing frequent business travellers all have in common – Loyalty Cards!  Despite living in a digital age and all major airlines and hotels having mobile apps for easy access to the account and card details, business travellers hold these cards in high regards.

With such valuable (and hard-earned) content, your Passport case needs to withstand the rigours of frequent travel whilst being something you’ll proudly pull out when gaining access to your regular lounge or presenting your Passport at boarding!


The Case

Tumi is a brand name that’s synonymous with business travellers.  The ID Lock Passport case from the Alpha collection upholds that reputation in a security conscious holder.

The outer fabric is a very hard-wearing Ballistic Nylon that is strangely satisfying to hold, and unlike the older leather alternatives, will wear much better over time.  In fact I was so impressed with the toughness of it, this could be the last Passport Case you may ever need!

The inner lining contains the Tumi ID Lock™️ technology.  Similar to RFID blocking technology found in the MYNE cards, this case will protect all data held on your Passport and cards within.  This technology adds no additional weight or bulk to the case and just provides peace of mind when you are on the move.



The ID Lock Case supports all international Passports that comply with the ISO/IEC 7810 ID-3 standard – or 125 × 88 mm!

  • 8 Loyalty/Credit card slots
  • 1 ID Window Slot
  • 1 International Passport Section
  • 14.5 x 11.25cm
  • Single Colour Option – Black
  • ID Lock™️ Technology



The ID Lock™️ Passport Case is £110 direct from Tumi.  You can also personalise the case with a choice of three characters on the left hand breast of the inside for free!  It is also worth stating the Case comes in a very nice gift box, so would make an ideal present for the frequent traveller in your life.

In Summary

Regular travellers like their luggage to stand the test of time and that is exactly what you will get with the Tumi ID Lock™️ Case.  The Ballistic Nylon fabric might sound tough but I found it does not take away from the premium feel of the case.  Actually, it adds to it!

The leather-bound trim adds just enough balance to compliment the Nylon and finishes the look of perfectly.  Any Business traveller would be proud to own this piece!
