Details

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. This 4-wheel compact and expandable carry-on is ideal for short, overnight trips and travel within Europe and other international locations. The main compartment expands by 2" (5cm) and features a removable garment sleeve. Three-stage telescoping handle and 4-wheel system with recessed swivel wheels. Interior accessory pockets; large exterior pockets. Note that hanger shown is not included with this item; it may be purchased separately (#0052).

      Overall a great redesign on the Intl expandable 4 wheeled carryon. Love the newly integrated wheel design which gives the bag more capacity and the bag is no longer side heavy where you had to worry if it would tip over. Loving my new bag!

          This is our sixth Tumi bag but it's the worst one of them all.
          It really is very small and not worth the price. We could not return it because we had one letter monogramed on it. Better off buying the larger model.

            Nothing special. Item arrived late, omitted complimentary monogram, customer service has limited phone hours and is not mobile friendly -- I could not even do this review via mobile. I traveled on 4 trips with this piece the first two weeks of ownership and I'm failing to see anything special or unique in comparison to my other brands of luggage in terms of attributes such as weight, maneuverability, etc. Also, the salesperson led me to believe it would arrive with hangers, but it did not. I would not recommend this bag.

                Comments about International Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On:

                Not as stable as it could be; tips over easily. Internatioanl sizing and wheels reduce useable space, but expansion feature allows increased capacity when not using as carryon.

                I had a perfectly good domestic sized Tumi carryon from the early 1990s that I was forced to check by Delta international at an $80 fee; I bought this at a steep discount direct from Tumi to avoid those fees. Avoidance of forced bag check at high fees will pay for itself over time.

                  Comments about International Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On:

                  There is no doubt about Tumi quality and this bag is quite good for short trips. Negatives are that it is not really very good for a suit.

                    Comments about International Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On:

                    I like the size and durability of this little bag. I've traveled with it a lot since purchasing for both business and personal trips.

                    A couple of things to consider: When it's fully expanded it tends to tip over.

                    And, the handle does not escalate downwards easily and at times, pops up intermittently or doesn't expand when needed. When I took it to the Tumi store in San Francisco, they told me I needed to expand it all the way then depress the button and slam it down quickly. Whaaa? Not the Tumi quality I am used to. So, it's disappointing in that regard.
