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. This 4-wheel compact and expandable carry-on is ideal for short, overnight trips and travel within Europe and other international locations. The main compartment expands by 2" (5cm) and features a suiter component. Three-stage telescoping handle and 4-wheel system with recessed swivel wheels. Interior accessory pockets; large exterior pockets. 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.

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.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiOmegaClosure

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 Innovation Image Icon - tumiFXTBallist

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.

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.
TUMI Innovation Image Icon - tumiXBrace45Handle

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

Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle

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

    Comments about International Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On:

    I received this as a gift and it's an amazing product. Small, but enough storage for a two-night business trip or a weekend getaway. Love the suiter (get the Tumi hangers, which are great; it doesn't come with them) for keeping my stuff reasonably wrinkle-free. I also love that the matching split toiletry case can be opened like a book and inserted into the front pocket for space-saving--very clever! It fits in all of the overhead bins I've tried it in and the appearance is an eye-catcher...I get compliments all the time from other passengers (but mostly flight attendants!). Only negative: it's a bit heavy to begin with given its durable construction and, when loaded up, can require a little extra muscle to get into an overhead bin.

              I was traveling for business every week for several months and used this bag every time. Overall I really like it.

              This suitcase has two main compartments. One section is very good for keeping suits and dresses wrinkle-free. It has the hanger attachment and straps to be used like a garment bag. It doesn't come with the hangers but Tumi sells this accessory and I would recommend buying theirs since it fits well. Sometimes I use it without the hangers, and it's still good for keeping clothing wrinkle-free because it's isolated, well-padded, and has no wheel bumps. You can fit a little more that way, but on the other hand you lose the convenience of just removing the hanging garments and putting them in your closet when you arrive at your hotel. The size is good for two days of clothes, plus I can fit some other items around it. I usually put a well-wrapped pair of heels nestled in the middle, and some bras/underwear in crevices on the sides. The other compartment is good for whatever else you need. (Night clothes, a shirt for a third day, slippers, non-liquid toiletries, a pair of jeans, etcetera.) This size is ideal for a 3-day / 2 night trip, but I've used it for a 4-day / 3 night trip with no problem, without having to use the expansion (so it still met carry-on restrictions). I also used it for a week-long trip using the expansion (which means you would have to check it).

              The only negative is that the front pockets are very thin. You can't fit your 3-1-1 liquids there. I keep them in my (large-ish) laptop bag.

              Also, the Tumi store manager got my monogram wrong, she switched 2 of the letters. She said if I go to any Tumi store they'll make me a new one and replace it, but I haven't had time yet - that's why I got it mailed to me in the first place.

                  Gave up on Tumi

                  I have a Tumi garment bag bought in a store several years ago and find it to be a decent carryon. I tried to order this wheeled carryon and a larger checked-bag, but after five phone calls, gave up. The first two calls were futile due to what I can only guess was a low-bid overseas call center where neither call taker could speak passable english. The next three calls involved very pleasant individuals, but for reasons that no one could explain, each order was cancelled the following day. There was never any follow up from Tumi. Until now, when I receive an email - addressed to someone else - asking me to review my purchases.

                  This atrocious level of customer service from a company that sells $1,000 suitcases is maddening. If it's this bad on the front end, I can't imagine how bad it is after the sale.
