Is there anything worse than running through the airport to try and catch your flight, when your suitcase wheel malfunctions or your handle breaks? Good, quality luggage that won’t let you down is one way to make catching flights easier and multiple layovers more palatable. With Tumi, that means shelling out some serious cash in order to take home the highest quality suitcase.

 

I recently purchased the Tumi Arcadia International Expandable Carry-On from the Ashton collection. With a sleek, dark grey fabric it gives off a modern and luxurious feel with a sporty, sophisticated attitude. I purchased the suitcase for weekend trips to take as a carry-on and took it on its maiden voyage on a flight from San Diego, California, to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

 

Let’s talk about the features first. For the interior: The suitcase has a front zipper that gives you access directly into the inside compartment, convenient for pulling out a sweatshirt mid-flight. If you have a suit jacket or nice dress you want to stay wrinkle-free, there’s a hanger bracket ready for you. The blue interior is beautiful, it has three mesh pockets and tie-down straps to make packing a dream. For the exterior: The main compartment has a zipper expansion to give you more room if needed, fine leather accents and four dual-spinning wheels to glide along easily as you run through the airport.

 

I judge the quality of a suitcase based on it’s wheels and zippers. In both cases, this suitcase knocks it out of the park. The price mark is extremely high, nearly $2,000, but you get what you pay for in terms of quality and warranty. If you’re looking for an exceptional, lifelong carry-on suitcase that will make you feel like a million bucks, Tumi is a winner. If you’re looking for good quality at a fraction of the cost, check out Away.
