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 360Â° 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 patent-pending 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 removable garment sleeve. 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).
