Tumi Knox Backpack | Review

Motorcycle Backpack

Recently my favorite Tumi Ducati backpack was stolen, so I decided to get another to replace it. I opted for the Knox Backpack from Tumi’s Alpha Bravo line. At first blush this backpack is simply gorgeous. The fit and finish is second to none and from the get-go, I received multiple compliments.

After spending some time with the pack and taking it on a few motorcycle rides, I can tell you it’s more than just good looking. It’s made from a sturdy ballistic nylon that will definitely help it stand up to the everyday rigors of riding.

It features seven different zip pockets (one being rubber lined/waterproof to hold damp/wet goods) along with a variety of internal slots and sleeves to hold anything from your laptop to a bottle of wine. It fits and feels very nicely on the back…so much so that that you actually forget you are wearing it.

Tumi was founded in 1975 and has gained a following based on its attention to details. The Tumi Tracer Product Recovery Program is something I wish I would have known about prior to getting my previous backpack stolen. It is a complimentary program deisigned to help reunite customers with their lost or stolen items.

By using a 20-digit individual product number that can be found within every bag (along with a toll free contact number) customers can register their information on the website and should someone be so kind to phone in, Tumi will assist you get your item back.

  • Front zip pocket(s)
