New Tumi Carry-On Attache Case Is Literally Bulletproof (PHOTOS)

The newest attache case from high-end luggage company Tumi offers a bit of security in our unpredictable world.

The limited edition "TEGRA-LITE" attache can literally repel bullets, the company says, using a polypropylene composite designed by chemical and materials science company Milliken.

The case has been successfully lab tested against .22 long and .38 special rounds, Tumi says, as well as "most handgun rounds in calibers .25 and .32."

Other design features seem ripped from spy movies, including a hidden compartment and a "handcuff ring" for securing the briefcase to one's wrist.

All that protection comes at a price, though: The TEGRA-LITE case starts at $5,995.
