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.

      I use this piece on all my travels beyond a week. I like carrying 2 for long trips.
      The best for space and durability and looks great! Only issue is that sometimes the expansion mechanism expands on its own and usually just one side .

      I love the ease of use of this piece and the spaciousness of the inside. It is deceivingly large inside and I was able to pack enough for a ten day business trip with 2 pair of dress shoes and running shoes as well. Great construction and as Tumi is known for, very classic and stylish.

        Will travel a lot this year and was looking forward to this bag. I think it is 1-2 inches too wide for my taste. It is a bit bigger than expected and when totally full it weighed 55 Lbs. which is heavier than I'd like to carry.
        I own an alpha Carryon for business trips and love it... Looking forward to many trips with this bag, but hopefully we wont need to extend it and tip the scales.

          Looks like a great replacement for the Dakota by Tumi that United Airlines destroyed on a recent overseas flight. I know I will love it when I use it for our next trip. Price was right, too, thanks to United!

            I love the size of this bag, not to small or big! Perfect for 1 or 2 week vacation. The 2 inch expansion has been the perfect feature after shopping.

            I have a similar Tumi product that I've had for the last 15 years that I love so I just bought this slightly smaller model for use on shorter trips. It seems like Tumi has made some nice improvements in their products over the years.
