About this Item

STYLE: 22021D2

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. If you need one carry-on for domestic and international travel, this expandable, 2-wheel design may be the perfect case. With its shorter and wider configuration, it offers the packing capacity of a 22" case, fits easily in the overhead and will be accepted by most domestic airlines and many international carriers. The main compartment expands 2" (5cm) and features a built-in suiter component. Note that hanger shown is not included with this item; it may be purchased separately (#0052). For an additional cost, the TUMI Accents Kit allows you to quickly customize your bag* with striking accents of color. The kit includes components made from embossed leather: TUMI luggage tag, monogram patch, handle wrap and zipper pull ties. Its versatile zip pouch is ideal for carrying accessories. *Included with select styles only.

TUMI Innovation by Design

Add-a-bag System

Quickly and easily add another travel piece or business case using our patented Add-A-Bag hook with secure fastened tab closure that holds in excess of 200 pounds. Also, many Tumi business cases and totes feature a back sleeve that slips over extended luggage handles allowing you to stack and carry heavier bags on your wheeled luggage. Used together, these systems allow travelers to carry 2 or even 3 items at the same time, effortlessly in one hand.

Easy Glide Wheels

Our state-of-the-art in-line wheels incorporate sealed steel ball bearings and are mounted on solid steel axles in custom-designed, shock-absorbing bushings. They roll smoothly and quietly for hundreds of miles.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiEasyGlide

Omega Closure System®

Tumi's patented closure system significantly reduces the risk of damage to the zipper. The Omega zipper puller is designed to break away from the bag if it becomes caught. The puller, rather than the entire zipper, is then quickly and easily replaced.

FXT Ballistic®

Tumi was the first to bring ballistic nylon to the consumer market over 30 years ago. Now we have perfected it with our exclusive FXT ballistic fabric, which combines a unique weave and a special coating to make it ultra-tough and virtually abrasion proof.

Tumi Tracer®

The Tumi Tracer® is an exclusive, complimentary program that helps reunite Tumi customers with their lost or stolen items. The core of the program is a unique 20-digit individual product number printed on a special metal plate that is permanently affixed to Tumi products. That number, along with the owner's contact information, is entered into our Tracer database when a bag is registered with us, and used to help aid in the recovery of lost or stolen items that are reported to us.

Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle

The tubing of our telescoping handles is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, making them both lightweight and extremely sturdy.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiAirGradeAlHandle

DuraFold™

Tumi's patent-pending DuraFold™ construction method folds and reinforces the corners of hardside cases with heavy-duty stitching and impact-resistant caps that provide superior corner strength and impact resistance for long lasting use.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiDuraFold

X-Brace 45® Handle System

This patented, innovative handle tube system protects the telescopic handle of the travel case. It is made from lightweight-yet-sturdy aircraft-grade aluminum that forms a protective, impact-absorbing structure around telescoping handle tubes within the case. This new features virtually eliminates damage to the handle tubes while reducing the overall weight of the case.

            I like it but think it would be more functional if the zip in pocket on the cover, i.e. where you can store shirts, were removed and instead there was more space in the bottom so you could store more things there.

                  There's no way when ordering on-line to request monogramming. I contacted Tumi, but by the time my e-mail was read, it had already shipped. I contacted the store where I've bought other pieces and they promised to send me the monogrammed badge, but its two weeks later and it still hasn't arrived. This isn't the first time I've had an issue with Tumi monogramming.
