As I continue with “staff picks”, I decided to address another important part of Irv’s Luggage’ business, travel accessories; I interviewed our chief accessory buyer, Andrea, who has been in the luggage business for over 39 years. Andrea talked about her four most popular and favorite travel accessories: Luggage Tags, Luggage Locks, Money Belts, Luggage Straps and Adaptor Plugs / Converter Kits.
Luggage Tags: Andrea’s favorite luggage tags are En Route. Not only are En Route tags easy to use, they also work very well and don’t break easily with their stretchy straps. En Route luggage tags are also very bright and colorful, just what travelers need to help identify and distinguish their luggage from the rest of the pack.
Luggage Locks: Regarding luggage locks, Andrea recommends combination locks and feels the three dial locks are the easiest to use. Her favorite brand LCI, Lewis N Clark, have been a mainstay for Irv’s Luggage over the years. Lewis N Clark locks are TSA approved, very rugged and dependable just like the company who makes them.
Travel Security Wallet: Andrea’s favorite brand of money belts and other travel security wallets is Eagle Creek Luggage. The Eagle Creek travel wallets are very durable, have great attention to detail, wonderful locking mechanisms and in addition, Andrea says Eagle Creek is now trying to go more “green” with their products, another great reason to buy Eagle Creek. Best of all, Eagle Creek is a good solid company you can depend on!!!!
Adaptor Plus & Converter Kits: Once again, Andrea has to go with LCI, Lewis N Clark, for the best adaptor plugs and converter kits. LCI has been on the market for many years, they are very dependable and know the business of converting and adapting energy!!!!
