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. If you need one carry-on for domestic and international travel, this 4-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 suiter component. Three-stage telescoping handle and 4-wheel system with dual recessed swivel wheels. Note that hanger shown is not included with this item; it may be purchased separately (#0052).

          Good product except that the hook to attach more bags is too long and so any briefcase would drag along the ground

          Love the weight and easy of strolling the bag. Very durable. The zipper area for clothes on underside of bag is a little difficult to get used to. Little expensive. But overall a great bag for business travel - I believe it will last for many years- and continue to look nice rather than tattered as other bags.

            Pretty disappointed with the latest Tumi design. I love the Tumi brand, but do not like this suitcase at all. Strap is really tight and hard to grip, and the interior is lined with so many pockets and extras that it is hard to fit in my stuff.

              I've been a TUMI customer since 1998 and this packing case is by far and away my favorite. I used to use the 2-wheeled versions of the Frequent traveler and Continental carry-on bags, the 4-wheeled cases have grown on me as I see people breezing through the terminal and down the airplane aisle with great ease. My dilemmas have been that the frequent traveler is superb for packing garments because it's taller which gives you more width for garments on a hanger, but it has to fit sideways in the overhead bin in most domestic aircrafts which takes up more room (less room for other passengers) and the Continental had amazing capacity for how I pack, but was awkward in the airplane aisle due to its width, which is frustrating when you're trying to manage other pieces and sometimes too fatigued to have patience for that. This case is the perfect marriage... it's wide (tall) enough to hang garments, narrow enough to breeze down the aisle of a plane and stow in the overhead with no problem and doesn't tip because of the balance issues you might experience with the 2-wheeled cases and the design makes packing easy. I've been a customer since 1998 and own well over 20 Tumi pieces - suitcases to crossbody, tote and computer bags to the weekender styles and I have been pleased with all but one purchase and TUMI management came through with flying colors on the customer service front and have made me an even more loyal customer. The quality and design, functionality and durability make this my go-to and only brand for travel.

                I purchased a Tumi briefcase in Baltic about a year ago - I now have five matching pieces and 71 flights later I can't think of a better purchase. This particular carry on can for 4 days comfortably

                      What's great. The new design for the suitor compartment. Keeps things less wrinkled and better organized. Can easily get 2 to 3 suits in the suitor side without a problem.

                      What's not so great. This is my first "wheelie" and it doesn't track so well unless facing forward, ackward.
