Detailed Product Description
Keep your light travel essentials well-protected in the Tumi Vapor International Carry On. This tough and lightweight, triple-layer ABS and polycarbonate hard shell carry-on case was made to absorb impact by flexing while under stress, then popping back to its original shape, eliminating dents and dings; and it fits neatly in an overhead bin. Its spacious, lined interior boasts a divided packing section with a curtain; tie-down straps; zippered pockets; and plenty of room for your short trip and in-flight necessities. The Tumi Vapor International Carry On comes with its own ID tag and TSA-approved surface-mounted locks.
Dimensions include wheels and handle but not expandability. These are the dimensions airlines recognize.

"Fantastic bag. I use the trains/subway in Chicago to get to Midway airport. Lightweight and you can fly through the airport if you need to with those wheels. I use the EBags packing cubes and I can pack for a week of business travel with casual clothes and workout shoes in it. I also have a Tumi backpack for my laptop, cords, etc which is great since it leaves both hands free to navigate. You won't be dissapointed."
"The wheels glide so effortlessly and although the suitcase appears small, it can hold a lot! Especailly when you use it with the Eagle Creek Compression Bags. I can fit 1 weeks worth of clothes, workout clothes, shoes and toiletries..with room to bring any clothes that I may have bought shopping that week. I LOVE this suitcase and would definitely purchase again!"
"The best carry-on I've had. With less than 3lbs weight it's a releif with the stricter baggage rules. Very efficiently divided with a zipper seperating the top and bottom halves. Much easier during security checks to just unzip and take your laptop out. Easy to roll it as well on 4 wheels. Very solid and rugged construction but susceptible to scratches"
"I purchased this item while on sale for my trip to London, otherwise the price may have been a bit steep. I am so glad that this wheeled case maneuvered so easily throughout the Underground and streets of London. It is very light weight, so I did not need assistance stowing it in the luggage bins on the airplane or carrying it up or down the Underground stairs (even though I fit a weeks worth of clothes inside). I originally purchased a Delsey case for my Olympics vacation (due to budget restrictions), but read online afterward that the Delsey case is constructed with cancerous materials. Since I already own 10+ Tumi products, I went to the Tumi store and found out that their products are rigorously tested and are not made with harmful materials. I am very happy with this purchase."
"I was disappointed with the look of the item ... the picture appeared to be names of cities and countries around the world...which I thought was very cool. Turned out to be collage of colored stripes. I could understand that such a matter would not reveal scrapes and scratches. The light weight and maneuverability of the piece is excellent ... very important because I walk with a cane. I would purchase this one again."
"I loved the look of the Carry On bag when I first got it. HOWEVER, I find it less than durable when it comes to scratches, bumps and scars. I have used the bag only once and it appears as if it has been around the world! I thought the surface was "hard" and mar resistant, but it shows dent marks, black marks and scratches. For the price, I believe it should be a lot tougher. Also, there are no compartments as such, only one zipped divider and a teeny weeny zippered pocket."
