About this Item

STYLE: 28721TGTNA

Expandable, accessible and effortless: this Tegra-Lite® Max case is the most durable and fully functional hardside case made today. It is expandable and features a spacious, accessible front pocket, plus it moves effortlessly in every direction on our double turning wheels. Tegra-Lite® is constructed from Tegris®, a revolutionary polypropylene thermoplastic composite material created by Milliken® for use in lifesaving armor, Nascar race cars and protective gear for NFL players. TUMI has received the worldwide, exclusive rights to use the Tegris material within the travel industry. If you need one carry-on for domestic and international travel, this expandable design may be the perfect case. With its shorter and wider configuration, it offers more packing capacity, fits easily in the overhead and will be accepted by most domestic airlines and many international carriers. It expands 2” for extra capacity when you need it, has two packing compartments and a hanger bracket for suits. Interior pockets for accessories. 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

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 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.

Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle

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

Tegris®

TEGRA-LITE® lightweight, hardside cases are made from Tegris®, a revolutionary, polypropylene thermoplastic composite material that is incredibly lightweight and exceptionally durable. Created by Milliken® for use in lifesaving armor, protective sports gear used by the NFL and NASCAR race car components, Tegris offers unparalleled strength and impact resistance at very light weights. It is consistent with Tumi's high standards of design excellence and is globally exclusive to Tumi for use in travel and accessory products.

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.

                We already own Tegra-lite large packing case, which we use for international travel for trips that are typically 3 weeks in duration. We decided to purchase this size as carry-on for long trips or as checked baggage for shorter trips.

                      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.

                        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.
