Alpha 2

Continental Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On

Color: Black

Tumi elevates your travel experience with Alpha 2, the pinnacle of our design innovation, engineering, functionality and performance. Alpha 2 embodies Tumi’s commitment to making the best better; it incorporates over 30 design improvements and more than 14 patented and trademarked Tumi components. The result is a collection of cases that are lighter and stronger while offering increased packing capacity, sleeker profiles, smarter functionality and easier maneuverability. Collection highlights include: 4-wheel cases with 360° wheels that are recessed into the bodies of the cases to provide more interior space, a lower center of gravity and stable multi-directional navigation, our patented Durafold™ Construction method that reinforces the case frames for superior strength and longevity, impact-resistant caps that provide additional corner durability, and our super-tough and virtually damage-proof X-Brace 45® handle system. Many of the 4-wheel cases feature three-stage telescoping handles and Tumi’s patent-pending, easy-to-use Lever Lock™ Expansion System that opens and closes securely to provide two-stages of expansion for additional packing space. Alpha 2 is made from Tumi’s patented, ultra-durable FXT® ballistic nylon. If you need one carry-on for domestic and international travel, this 4-wheel design may be the perfect case. With its shorter and wider configuration, it offers the packing capacity of a 22" case, fits easily in the overhead and will be accepted by most domestic airlines and many international carriers. The main compartment expands 2" (5cm) and features a removable garment sleeve. Three-stage telescoping handle and 4-wheel system with recessed swivel wheels. Note that hanger shown is not included with this item; it may be purchased separately (#0052).

      What's great. The new design for the suitor compartment. Keeps things less wrinkled and better organized. Can easily get 2 to 3 suits in the suitor side without a problem.

      What's not so great. This is my first "wheelie" and it doesn't track so well unless facing forward, ackward.

          I bought this TUMI for my marriage therapist wife, who flies constantly (5 million miler) doing seminars. She has declared that TUMI is my "love language:" I knew she was very exacting, so I kept looking online until I spotted what i thought would be the perfect, four-wheel carryon and bought it for her for Valentine's Day. I loved it but would she? "It's perfect!" she told me, and my TUMI gift to her has now become her "love language" too!
