It’s 2:30 in the morning. You’ve just gotten off the plane at the Seattle-Tacoma airport after flying for more than 6 hours straight. You’re tired, hungry and getting impatient – the last thing you want to do is stand by that annoying carousel and attempt to figure out which piece of standard black luggage is yours.
After you stop cursing the luggage gods, you notice some pieces of wheeled luggage gliding past. First – standard black luggage. Not yours. Second – standard black luggage. Not yours. Third – standard black luggage. Again, not yours. But then you notice a two-piece luggage set, a bright cobalt blue color with two red luggage straps on each piece, coming towards you on the conveyor belt. As quickly as you saw the bags, they are gone – the owner swiftly picked up the pieces and left the baggage claim area in less than five minutes. In that one moment, you have made two decisions – one: you need to purchase some distinctive luggage and/or some travel accessories to go with your luggage and two: you will never take a late night flight ever again.
A few days after settling from your trip, the open luggage on your bedroom floor catches your eye. Yes, there is still laundry to be done; and no, you have no plans to do it right now; but you can’t help but think about how your current luggage made your recent trip more difficult than it needed to be. You begin searching the internet for luggage pieces and travel accessories that will help distinguish your luggage from someone else’s while still allowing for individuality and style to come through.
In your search, you come across some travel accessories that you recognize, but never thought twice about – luggage belts. The Lewis N Clark Quick Release Luggage Belt not only keeps your luggage closed securely but it comes in fun, easy to recognize colors. One of the easiest ways to make your bags your own when using luggage belts is to use multiples and attach them in a pattern or specific design so your luggage will be easily recognizable when you are waiting at the baggage claim. Just be sure to remember how you arranged the belts!
Another great way to differentiate your luggage from someone else’s is with luggage tags. This is slightly more difficult to accomplish than with a luggage belt, but as long as you can get close enough to the luggage on the carousel, it can be very helpful. Luggage tags have come a long way from their original days of a black luggage tag with a flap that covered your personal information or a black luggage tag with no flap. We offer luggage tags in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and patterns. From your favorite hometown sports team, like the Chicago Bears, to a quirky design perfect for the artist or child in your life, geometric patterns and all, Irv’s Luggage has dozens of luggage tags ready to be added to your next purchase as the perfect gift extra.
Now, if you are feeling very bold in your luggage search, you can almost never go wrong with colorful luggage. One surefire way to make a statement and recognize your bags almost instantly is with pink luggage. Pink luggage seems to be one of the newest and brightest trends in the luggage industry and it comes in every shape and size imaginable. You can start with something low key such as the Titan X2 Flash 15″ Beauty Case or you can go all-out with pieces like the Caribbean Joe Newport 3 Piece Expandable Luggage Set. These pink luggage pieces will be sure to stand out among a sea of black luggage.
