        I purchased the bag because it looked beautiful - and it did when I purchased it. On my first trip, I checked the bag. It arrives in Frankfurt scratched and looks horrible. My second trip, it's even more damaged on the outside and the wheels squeak. DO NOT buy this bag if you plan on actually using it frequently or checking with the airlines. It's a great bag for style and the infrequent traveler.

          Comments about Tegra-Lite® Max Continental Expandable Carry-On:

          The outer case material is extremely easy to scratch. My bag looks so bad it is embarrassing when people notice it's a Tumi. Bad design flaw on the outer convenience zippered opening. The two corners protrude from the body of the bag. Both corners of my bag are showing substantial damage. If I had known about this beforehand, ​I would not have purchased this model.

              Comments about Tegra-Lite® Max Continental Expandable Carry-On:

              The material holds up, but the exterior finish wears out fast. I though others were exaggerating when I bought the piece, but they weren't. Since the exterior is merely 'cosmetic' I'm not sure the warranty is in effect, however one would expect more at this price point.

              Additionally, the pocket in the front is designed poorly as everything slides down and settles on the bottom bulging.

                I just purchased the Tegra-Lite Continental Carry On in Herringbone Brown. It's gorgeous, well constructed, and functional. Great for short trips; can pck clothes for 3 to 5 days. No problems with scratches etc, but to avoid this possibility, I bought the carry on. Sales person indicated that in the event of damage, the warranty covers replacement. Completely satisfied. Highly recommend this product.
