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 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 suiter component. Three-stage telescoping handle and 4-wheel system with recessed swivel wheels. Interior accessory pockets; large exterior pockets.

Aircraft Grade Aluminum Extension Handle
The tubing of the telescoping handles is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, making them both lightweight and sturdy.
FXT Ballistic Nylon ®
TUMI was the first to bring ballistic nylon to the consumer market over 30 years ago. FXT Ballistic fabric combines a unique weave and a special coating to make it ultra-tough and virtually abrasion proof.
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 permanantly affixed to TUMI products. That number, along with the owner's contact information, is entered into the Tracer database when a bag is registered with TUMI, and is used to help aid in the recovery of lost or stolen items that are reported to TUMI.
X-BRACE ® 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 the telescoping handle tubes within the case. This new feature virtually eliminates damage to the handle tubes while reducing the overall weight of the case.
TUMI's patent-pending Durafold construction method folds and reinforces the corners of the hardside cases with heavy-duty stitching and impact-resistant caps that provide superior corner strength and impact resistance for long lasting use.
