About this Item

STYLE: 22061D2

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). 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.

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 Continental Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On:

    I've been traveling a lot for work lately and have gone through two lower quality bags in the last 18 months (wheel and handle). A work associate told me to check out Tumi and so far I love it. It just feels better...smoother....it's hard to explain. The color is also great (Earl Grey) and easy to differentiate from all the other black bags in the airport. The capacity is perfect for my 4 day work trips which include packing business and casual clothes. I like it so much that I'm considering buying the satchel for weekend trips as well (but its out of stock).

              For travel, you can do a suit folded nicely without wrinkles, but recommend a garment bag or the Tumi carry on rolling suitcase. This suitcase packs a lot! I am 6'2 and shoes are always the issue but fit plenty for a 3 day work trip.

                  This bag carries everything I need for a 4-6 day casual trip. I mean EVERYTHING! Clothes, shoes, toiletries, hair dryer, makeup - the works!! It is incredibly roomy for its size.
                  The only minus is that it's heavier than my old carry-on.
