Tumi’s New Bulletproof Briefcase: Perfect Gift for James Bond’s 50th Birthday

After two years of testing, luxury luggage company Tumi has revealed it’s stylish but ultra-tough Tegra-Lite Briefcase. Costing $6,000, this limited edition will only have 28 pieces made. What makes this the perfect gift for James Bond’s upcoming 50th birthday is the fact that it’s bulletproof and includes a hidden compartment.

It’s built with 65 layers of “Tegris” integrated into the fabric and body. Tegris is a polypropylene thermoplastic composite, which you’ll also find in protective gear for the military, Nascar drivers and NFL players. The case has been lab tested against .38 special and .22 long rounds, but Tumi says it can handle most handgun round in .32 and .25 calibers.

High-quality leather and plush suede are used for the trim and lining, ensuring a slick style and luxury feel that Bond would demand. Two other spy-friendly features are a false bottom for hidden storage, along with a “handcuff ring” if you need to secure it to your wrist.
