A backpack with interior LED lighting?
That's exactly what Tumi has cooked up with its limited-edition Tumi X Vice Brief Pack, a $495 backpack in its Alpha line. The backpack design was influenced by Vice, a noted DJ, which explains why the main compartment features LED lighting with three power levels.
Though the LED lights sound a bit gimmicky, the idea of actually being able to see inside your man bag in dim lighting could benefit people besides DJs and other club denizens. Think: business professionals on a late-night flight. Fidgety conference attendees during someone's tedious PowerPoint presentation.
Apparently Vice has a thing for neon green, so the Tumi bag's interior is lined in said color. I suppose that's better than the bright orange I've seen inside some Briggs & Riley bags.
What's next? A Virgin America-branded backpack with interior mood lighting? Yes, please.
