Tumi is a company with a focus on the traveling market. They built these luggage carriers with an eye towards those looking for convenience when carrying their luggage around. It isn't an easy thing to go from point AS to point B with all of your stuff. There are going to be times when you are tired and simply don't feel like dealing with all of that weight.

The Tegra is great for those times because the handling is built for those who need some help moving things around. The Vapor is for the traveler who wants more freedom of movement. It's design is absolutely perfect for those times when you need to carry luggage in tight or awkward spaces.
