      Comments about International Carry-On:

      I was stopped at the gate in June on a domestic trip. My bag was 20x15x8. I have had that bag for about 5 years and never had a problem. I was forced to check in the bag at the gate because it was 1 inch too wide. I was upset because all my disposable contacts lens, work clothes was in the bag. I do not want to be denied boarding so I did not make a fuss. Last year on an international flight to Rome, I was stopped at Frankfort using a slightly bigger bag. It was 22x14x10, 1 inch too thick. So I just about had it. So I searched the internet and this is the one bag I found that meets the new 6/2014 airline dimensions for carry on, which is 22x14x9. So I bought it. I am very pleased, I have not bought Tumi luggage before, although I have several just in case bags and a travel handbag. It is very light weight, and it also came with a very cute "suitcase" luggage tag, which was not mentioned in the description. I also bought the matching just in case bag, the large packing suitcase and a luggage tag. Very pleased. I got all these in the Jonathan Adler pink chevron print.

      Nice bag, but smaller than expected

        Comments about International Carry-On:

        I know the dimensions were listed, but I was still surprised at how small this bag was for a carry-on. My other Tumi carry-on is several inches longer and a couple inches deeper. Other than that, it's a great bag. I like that it has hard sides, but is still a zippered bag.

          This is a great little suitcase with 2 flaws: 1) it is easy to over-pack because it holds so much; and 2) it just screams for a handle on the long side. I think I know why it doesn't have one, but it would be SO much easier to handle if it did I'd say it's worth giving up the inch or so to add one!

            Deliciously lightweight and easy to heft up into an airplane overhead bin; being a woman, this was/is important to me, as well as its stylish design.

            Perfect for a 2-3 day trip without having to pay baggage-check fees. Also perfect for a weekend auto trip, and easily fits into a small sport car's trunk.

            The wheels maneuver quite smoothly.

            I love the bright two-tone colors and the fact that it will be so easy to identify.

            A very handy feature is the easy-to-use built-in TSA lock; both of the zipper pulls snap into it with ease, flush with the luggage surface.

            Had an old, heavy, soft-sided carry-on for years and had been looking to replace it with something a whole lot easier to wheel through the airport and a cinch to lift into an overhead bin. The Vapor Intl Carry-on certainly fills those criteria. An added benefit, and one I was not expecting, is that I can actually pack as much or more than usual. This small bag has plenty of space! Can't say enough positive things about it. Treat yourself!

              I am a woman who is 5'2" and I have finally found in this bag a lightweight carry on that I can actually easily lift into the airline overheads. The 4 wheel design is also very easy on my back and I notice a definite difference in back strain (less!) from hauling 2 wheelers. At first, I thought the handle was flimsy but it is actually not; just a bit more flexible than I anticipated. I can pack 2-3 days' clothing, cosmetics, etc. in this bag with no problem. My favorite!!!

                  (1) Tumi has a domestic-dimensioned Vapor.

                  (2) Airlines are moving to restrict by weight and not dimensions and if you "desperately...need those couple extra inches..." -- you are not traveling anywhere like light enough to carry your bag on in the coming travel environment anyway.

                    Dear Tumi,
                    Ive come back to this bag time and again in my search for the perfect domestic carry on. I desperately want the style and quality and 4 wheels of the Tumi Vapor International but i need those couple extra inches this bag is lacking. I guess i have to go out and get another cheapo bag that will end up in landfill in another yr while waiting for you to come up with a 21.5 x 15.5 x 9 inch version of this beautiful 4 wheeler.
                    Sincerely,
                    Ron

                        The extendable handle is flimsy and weak; I'm afraid over the potential lifetime of this bag this will be the first thing to break. I noticed it was wobbly just on the first use and this characteristic also made it difficult to control.

                        On the positive side it hold enough to get through a 4 day trip. The ability to pack both sides was nice because you can easily keep shoes and later dirty clothing away from clean clothing. It fit very easily into even the smallese overhead on any airplane.
