About this Item


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 versatile 4-wheel case with removable garment sleeve and multi-level, expandable main compartment is ideal for 3-6 day trips. Features removable garment sleeve that holds up to two suits, tie-down straps and zip pockets for accessories. Three-stage telescoping handle and 4-wheel system with 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

  • 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.
  • Lever Lock™

    Our patent-pending expansion system provides two stages of expansion and up to 2.5 extra inches of packing space. The durable, lightweight spring-loaded levers are designed to open and close easily and securely.
  • 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.
  • Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle

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

      Comments about Short Trip Expandable 4 Wheeled Packing Case:

      Saw this late last summer. I had to have it! I have since bought it, took on a trip to Paris and also one to New York. It is a great bag and the added space that the expansion capability adds is great for trips where you might want to do a little shopping and fit everything inside the case. I was able to fit the Lindt Advent Calendar in the suitcase, which I did not want to ship to Florida because of heat concerns. It's quite a big box, and I also fit a couple of thick fleeces in the case just be adding one expansion tab. This case is elegant and practical. An added bonus is you look cool at the airport with a bag that is far nicer than anybody else's. The bag did not get any stains or marks on these two trips, the fabric is very practical and handsome. I think "short trip" is a bit of a misnomer. It holds enough stuff for at least a 12 day trip. It is a bigger case so I would not take it on a trip where any stairs are involved. The carryons would be better in that regard.
