I purchased the Alpha 22922 based on its advertised dimensions of 22" x 14" x 9" and was surprised to discover that the length actually measures 23-1/2". This puts it over the published limits of most domestic airlines and puts you at the mercy of the flight crews. While they have yet to stop me from carrying it onboard, it almost always has to be turned sidewise to fit in the overhead*, so that I am taking up far more than my share of the bin. Otherwise a great bag. If I had it to do over again, I would get Tumi's smaller Alpha 22020 (International) bag which holds almost as much and would make for less stressful boardings.
Update: Tumi has updated their site to include the actual outside dimensions for all of their "carry-on" luggage. These are the dimensions that are used by the airlines and the FAA. Note that the "International" is the only Alpha option that meets airline and FAA limits. Both the 22922 and the "Continental", which is pushed as an alternative by many luggage stores, exceed limits. After being force-checked on a Delta flight, I finally bit the bullet and sprung for the Tumi International (22020) Tumi Alpha International 20" Zippered Expandable Carry On 22020. Quite a relief, not having to worry about fitting an oversized bag into the bin.

* The exceptions are the large center-isle aircraft(such as the Boeing 757-200)with three seats on either side of the isle. The three seats allow enough overhead bin depth to just accomodate this bag wheels-out.

Excellent bag, well thought out. High quality materials, good construction, and nice looking. Good pocket layout, there are two interior pockets that can either velcro to the interior walls of the bag, or lie flat on top of the packed case.

The big drawback is that it is too long for some overhead bins, on domestic flights (I dont care about international). AA MD80 and 737-800 were no problem, but any Southwest flight 737-700 it just didnt fit unless you go sideways-- which there isnt always room for. I want a bag that I *know* will fit no matter where i lie in the boarding process, so I returned this for the continental (which is shorter, but wider, and has the same packing capacity).

I fly 10-16 legs a month and got this to try a "luxury" bag and needed an extra bag anyhow. As far as the construction and durability of the bag itself, not many issues to report. The zipper pulls are a little fragile and are prone to coming off. So many times that I have an envelope from Tumi full of them. Interior of the bag is nice and easy to pack. But as for the size of this bag...it does not fit in an Airbus 319 or 320. Wheels in or out upside down or right side up. Endured the wrath of the flight attendant who pretty much told everyone I was the reason they were late. So thanks for that. No problems in Boeing products, but it is obviously not for international bins. Needless to say, it was checked after that and went back to my Luggageworks Exec bag. That Airbus thing alone is enough to say don't get this bag as a roll-aboard. Checked bag? It passes and is durable, so two stars.

First flight this weekend, and my worries were realized.
My wife got this bag for me for my bday, and I have been really excited about it - except for all the reviews that I see about its length.
Do not buy this bag. Get the international and save yourself some anxiety.
I went to a Tumi dealer ( not where we got the bag) & was told it actually fits into very few overhead compartments properly.
I'm really disappointed.
On the flip side, the construction, zippers, look - all excellent.

This case replaced a 20" that I bought as it was a little small for me. That said, it is pricey, but for a reason. It is worth every penny. Solid construction, outstanding workmanship, superior quality. What do you expect? It is a Tumi. This is the first Tumi carry-on I have bought, but I own 3 briefcases and a backpack. I feel the same about all of them. Hard to beat.

I bought this bag as a replacement for a TravelPro Platinum carry-on that I've been using and abusing for about 20 years. I would like to address the issue that some have with the size of this bag - this is not intended to be a review for my old TP. Some might complain that this Tumi bag doesn't fit in 'ALL' overhead bins, I can tell you that my old and retiring TravelPro is even larger in all dimensions and has managed to fit on most flights I've been on over the last 2 decades. In certain cases, I've had to turn it sideways and upset only a few people, but in the majority of times I've flow (at least 15 times per year for the last 20 years), this bag has never had to have been checked. But in all honestly, the new TravelPro Platinums don't come even close to the quality of my 20 year old one. Which leads me to by the Tumi, which is the carryon that I can find that matches the quality, fit, durability, and finish of my 20 y/o Travelpro. And trust me, it's worth it. You won't find another bag of this quality in this size - you'd have to settle for something smaller. I made the mistake of buying a B&R Baseline Carry On and was displeased with the size difference. So if what you're looking for a high quality carryon the stretches the limits on size, but manages to fit, then this is it.
