    Another nice detail that doesn't come through from the picture view: the hard plastic side with the picture has rounded corners, including the way the plastic side rounds down from the front face of the picture. If you run your fingers around the edges there are no places that dig into your fingers or catch on any cloth. Also, the colors have been carefully chosen to work well with a wide number of the current bag color combinations. (Forum members with a modest (ahem!) selection of Tom Bihn products in different colors in their possession can verify this.) I will just note that the tag traveled smashingly with my Indigo Tri-Star.

    I have a couple of bags from Patagonia (old ones) that have the luggage tag built into the bag. I like these cos there is no chance of ripping out ever. They have a simple slide in card feature, and a flap that snaps over it to have some privacy. I think this is one of those small details and ideas that would be great to see on TB bags.

My concern with luggage tags is to always conceal my data so as to prevent the scurrilous from gleaning my address with their intent of scoping my home while I am away. Just being prudent.

    They are gorgeous and will be in my March order, as I have a bag with the privacy screen on its luggage tag window, and I can just put this plane-side-out with a little label on it that says 'see reverse for owner contact data.' At present I use a white index card set up like that.
    hi ex,

    you can either write your contact information on a card you insert into the luggage tag, or you can insert your business card into the luggage tag.

    if you're concerned about someone gleaning information from your luggage tag, you can write the information so that it is small and fine but clear so that you can see it when you look at it up close, but not so that you can read it across the room.

    Nice! I hadn't noticed those. I do feel that a pricier version with braided wire teathers would be nice too. My Silicone tag tethers get chopped now and then.

    Instead of using a luggage tag that can be torn off, I clip a mini organizer pouch inside the smallest pocket of my bag.

    My permanent adress is always inside the pouch but an hotel business card can be slipped in there in a giffy, just add your name and email in the back of the card.


    If you really really want an outside luggage tag, stay tuned because there are many new Tom Bihn products in the works and we never know what awesome things are going to come out of that small factory.

    If you really want a cool one right this minute, check Etsy.
    The place where artists can express themselves and sell their art.
