Comments about Large Trip Packing Case:
I wanted to fall in love with this high-tech suitcase, but haven't. I live in Europe and frequent the US where I always fill two suitcases and a large carry-on with 'loot' for the return trip. The suitcase excels in its holding capacity and light-weight architecture allowing for more items than similar sized suitcases.
However try moving two suitcases like this and a carry-on on wheels. It's not easy. This suitcase doesn't have the strength to carry a carry-on as a 'pony bag' while it's being pulled or on-top if it's being pushed. I tried, and the handle bent (since repaired Tumi).
When I do fill the bag to the top and push down on the cover to shut it, I really feel like the zipper might give. The zipper and seams don't resemble the sturdiness you find in the Alpha models (albeit they are much heavier).
After a year's worth of travel the silver color has its fair share of scapes and scratches. Nothing too bad, but it does show wear fairly quickly.
If I was a traveler who usually traveled with only one checked bag and one carry-on + wanted to push a light suitcase + wanted to look stylish + had deep pockets to buy a bag with great warranty service, then this is the bag I'd buy.
Unfortuantely I travel heavy and I'll limit my suitcase collection to only one of these as a result.
