Current M models:

E92 M3: 3704lbs
E90 M3: 3926lbs
E91 M3: 4145lbs
E82 1M: 3461lbs
E70 X5M: 5082lbs
E71 X6M: 5324lbs

Bulky is exactly the word I would use to describe current M models.

What's the big deal with Tumi? Literally all of the kids from Qatar at my school have a Tumi bag, usually a roller, and they have retail stores in high-end malls.

It's sold at "high end" dept stores and thus perceived as desirable

But why? Are they very high quality? To me it's just another leather goods brand, except they plaster their logo on their bags like Jansport.

I've never bought a Tumi product, but the only people I know who love them are not the most discerning. Handling the product in person, I thought, there is no way I'm spending this for this. It was like $200 for a Dopp kit. As for durability, I cannot comment.

The only reason that I like Tumi is that I bought a Tumi wallet for $80+- about 10 years ago, and it is still going strong. Very good quality for the price.

I also like the fact that the only place it say 'Tumi' is on the inside, not a fan of the designer name/logo nonsense.

Ive had that tumi wallet above for about 5 years. It is still going strong but I paid around 140 for it back then.

Best wallet I have ever had

I hate big wallets, and have never understood the compulsion to spend more than $40 on one. I usually go to a department store or Marshalls, Loehmann's, etc, find a bifold that has a pull-out leather insert (think it's called a card case) that folds in half and has two window pockets, and get that. It's usually around $20. I throw out the outer bifold or leave it on the street for some homeless person to sell for $5 to someone, and keep the leather insert portion. The less bulk the wallet takes up, imo, the better. All I want is a window to show my ID behind, a couple of insert pockets for a cc/bank card or two, and something that folds in half to contain my folded bills. That's served me fine for many years.

Actually I think this one's pretty nice, though actually a little thicker than I ideally prefer.

Just the passcase insert is what I'd want.
