A Unique Luggage Tag

While attending the New York Times Travel Show the giveaways were definitely underwhelming. 
However there was one thing that really stood out. I was given this interesting luggage tag from airberlin. At the show I tossed it in my bag initially thinking nothing more of it
When I got home I went through my bag to check out the brochures and little trinkets I had received. As I had remembered the bag was full of junk. Once again I came across my airberlin luggage tag. This time I took a better look at it and noticed that it was really different. The luggage tag was shaped to look like a roll aboard luggage bag! The tag slides open which is where you write your personal information.
I won’t be using the tag since the plastic “handle” holding the strap is really thin and I think that it would break pretty fast.
I wonder what other interesting and unique luggage tags are out there?

Road Warrior M Series

USA Today posted a short article about some exciting, new luggage shown at the 2012 Travel Goods Show in Las Vegas. Collapsible and expandable luggage brought the greatest interest and also won awards at the show.

Here are the winners:

The luggage listed above range in price from $199-$600

I usually travel with a backpack to keep my hands free but these new wheelie bags definitely interest me. I am actually in the market for a new carry-on wheelie. I recently bought a new bag that I need to return due to it being way too small.
A big issue for me (and I am sure many others) when it comes to luggage is storage. These new pieces definitely help with that issue due to how they collapse.

I am most interested in the Road Warrior M Series. I love how the bag collapses to half it’s size. While this feature looks amazing, I am curious to know how the quality of the bag itself is. Not much is know about the company and this is a brand new product.
