Arrive is meticulously appointed with the finest aesthetic and engineering features imaginable. It combines contemporary understatement with the ultimate functionality of Tumi's advanced technology. Signature details include smooth calfskin trim, elegant and resilient HTLS Polyester fabric, striking chrome accents, custom-made handles, intelligent interior organization and numerous patented components. This compact, expandable wheeled carry-on features numerous accessory pockets and a removable suit sleeve.
PROS: I love the functionality of the bag. The various pockets are great for organization, and the detail work is unmatched. The luggage tags are magnetic and stay on the bag so that they don't get caught. For a bag at this price, the little things matter. The expansion system is very good and sturdy as well.
But the best thing is this bag fits all new airport rules domestic and international. Some other brands have wide-body internationals that are short, or tall domestic bags that do not account for wheels. This bag fits. Enough said.
CONS: It is an expensive bag. There is no denying it. But on top of pure functionality, it has the classic style to match. It isn't gaudy with bright colors, or simply a practical piece. You pick this Tumi over others because the style is there as well.
I had to talk to Tumi to get the free monogramming. They will mail it to you to self-apply or you can bring it into their stores. It is just an added inconvenience, but the price and customer service with Luggage Pros has been top notch.

High quality excellent design
PROS: Well thought out design. Lots of pockets and rolls the best I've tried. I've owned Tumi in the past and this was a gift for graduation, best piece I've found.
CONS: Price is high, but you get what you pay for. LP had a great sale, so that tipped it.

PROS: This bag is expensive, but so far worth every penny! I travel around the world with only carry on bags (this bag along with a backpack), and need a bag that stays close to the regulated size when full. This bag does, and holds more than I thought it would. Great quality, function, and looks.
CONS: I am a Hartmann fan, and now I will see if Tumi holds up over time.
