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. Overnight business or weekend travel has never been more convenient. This compact and well-organized duffel is easy to pack and wheel anywhere. It offers a roomy main compartment and numerous interior organizer pockets for accessories, electronics and shoes.

        Comments about Wheeled Compact Duffel:

        I use this case for business. I have to carry on my equipment when I fly. I have always liked Tumi, and I like that if something goes wrong, wherever I am I can take it in to get it repaired. The problem is the side pockets, even when empty, make the case too wide to roll down an airplane aisle. That means that I have to pick it up as I board the plane and carry it to whatever seat I am sitting it, to then store overhead. It's very heavy, and the fact that I cannot wheel it down the aisle is a HUGE negative for me. I wish that had been pointed out when I bought it. I told the salesperson exactly how I intended to use it. I'm sad, as I don't think I can continue to use, and I paid a lot for it!!!

          Comments about Wheeled Compact Duffel:

          I purchased this wheeled duffel for short business trips because it was advertised as a carry-on. The features of the bag are excellent and it is the quality Tumi is famous for. However, it is larger than it appears, and I don't think it would be permitted in the cabin of some of the small regional planes I have to use...this is why I gave it 4 stars. It has to go back! If Tumi will make a wheeled piece sized approximately 18"x14"x7", I'll be the first customer!

            I purchased this Tumi as a Christmas gift for my wife, so it was not yet used. However I requested her initials (NLP) in pink, and there are no initials at all.

              Comments about Wheeled Compact Duffel:

              I travel frequently for business and mostly in small commuter aircraft. My requirements for this bag were:

              * Never needs to be gate checked (I've waited over 25 minutes for gate checked bags).
              * Can fit 3 days of business travel and a pair of shoes (note: this assumes I wear my suit coat)
              * Compartments for my non-clothes travel necessities (razor, sonicare, etc.)
              * Wheeled bag

              I've flown on 3 different commuter aircaft (ERJ-145, Q400 and Q200 -- all United commuters)and I was able to get this bag into the overhead for all 3.

              If I needed to pack full suit, I would need to take my larger 21" Tumi, but for most of my 2 to 3 day travel this fits the bill perfectly.

              This has the typical high quality I've come to expect from Tumi -- extremely durable, clean lines, very functional.

              I would highly recommend this bag to others.
