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.

    Comments about TUMI International Zippered Expandable Carry-On:

    Great quality and liked to option for personalized monogram. I was very excited about this bag when I heard about this first time and then visited few stores to take a look. It is close to perfect when it comes about quality, comfort and look. I ordered this bag online and when I was inspecting the bag while receiving, I found that one of the pull tag was missing from inner zipper. It is not a big deal but I never expected this kind of defect from Tumi. When I called customer care to see if replacement is possible, I got an answer that this is not available anymore and I have to call for repair. I can call repair but it is very annoying when you buy new goods and you have immediately call for repair. Going onwards, I am going to be extra cautious to buy any goods from Tumi Stores website.

    Otherwise this is perfect carry-on for frequent travelers. I wish the empty weight could be little lesser.

      I purchased this as a gift for my 23 year old son. He was thrilled with how much it held for a weekend trip and was still lightweight and able to fit on any airline! Will work for both business and pleasure trips.

      • Short long trips

      Comments about TUMI International Zippered Expandable Carry-On:

      It took several weeks to arrive (Needed to contact Tumi twice). Once arrived, they did inscribe the initials I had asked for as there was no place on the order site to add this.. I have used a similar bag in the past which lasted me almost 15 years. Had to give it away to my brother who still uses it!
      But all said and done, this is an excellent bag.

      Great quality/size zippered expandable carry-on which should not be a problem when travelling overseas - specially coming back when some countries give you a hard time even with a 22".

      Comments about TUMI International Zippered Expandable Carry-On:

      I own several TUMI Carry-Ons and this is disappointing. Bought it for my wife when it was available in Espresso color.
      I second the comments on the tipping over when extended, awfully imbalanced and too small for anything but an overnight trip. DO NOT RECOMMEND! Look into 22021 or 22922 instead.

      Comments about TUMI International Zippered Expandable Carry-On:

      The "International" CO is only 13.75 wide vs the "Continental" at 16.25. My husband recently bought the Continental and we both loved it. I mistakenly ordered the International and it is not very useful. Very unhappy but it was what I (mistakenly) ordered.

        Comments about TUMI International Zippered Expandable Carry-On:

        I purchased this one to replace the previous version after 15 years of international travel. The new version is just as practical and well designed as the old one but benefits from upgrades to the handles and wheels. Perfect for short trips, carry-on size for the outbound journey with enough expansion room for those extra items you receive/purchase while away. Never afraid to check this bag, tough enough for any airport baggage system.

            Comments about TUMI International Zippered Expandable Carry-On:

            I use this luggage for every occasion except for extended trips that require me to be away for more than a month. Absolutely sturdy, functional and pretty much top notch in every way. I used to own the #22922 model for a long time before I switched over to this one as many airline overhead bins are getting smaller and could no longer consider it as a carry-on as I had to do on-board check-ins quite a bit. This model got rid of that problem in no time. I saw a couple of reviews in regards to the luggage leaning forward, but that has never happened to me. I'm extremely happy with this piece and probably will be for a long time to come. Planning on a 10 day trip to Europe next week and I'm more than confident that this luggage will get the job done. Trying to be as objective as possible and would like to find some flaws but I really have nothing negative to say about this one. Tumi really nailed it.
