IdentiGrip Luggage ID
So great, I own three!
I have one of these for each of my suitcases, including my carry-on, because they are so handy to help you find your luggage in the baggage claim crowd. I didn't want to buy black luggage, but the kind that had all the features I wanted only came in black, so it was important to find a way to quickly ID my bags.
I bought my first Bucky IdentiGrip five years ago in my favorite pattern, which has since been discontinued; but in the meantime I've purchased two more in coordinating colors/patterns. Even my carry-on gets one, so in case I'm somehow separated from it in a busy airport, it quickly stands out.
What's also nice about these is that the velcro is strong, so the IdentiGrip takes some effort to remove, which means that a thief looking for bags where they can quickly remove the tags is more likely to have to struggle with the IdentiGrip. Also, the interior name/address card means it's hard for criminals to quickly check addresses to see if you're away from home.
Finally, I don't put mine on the telescoping handle as shown in Container Store's image. I put it on one of the fixed handles attached directly to the body of the suitcase, so I can still access the button on my telescoping handle, and so the telescoping handle still can retract fully into the bag.

Makes luggage easy to find
These are great and secure. They even have a luggage ID tag inside. I wish they had more colors and designs like they did years ago..

This should do the trick for a luggage tag and being able to easy identify/find my bag. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but see no downside

Very easy to spot at baggage claim!
I use these ID handles for my nondescript luggage; my black suitcase looks like any other coming down the baggage claim belt. The handles are colorful enough to spot your luggage quickly and they stay securely attached to any piece of luggage. The combination of the velcro closure and the strap (to loop around the luggage handle) ensures that it will never fall off in transit.
My only (minor) complaint is that the address label that goes on the inside of the ID handle gets worn down quickly. However, I fix that little problem by slipping in a new business card with every trip.
Overall, I really like these ID handles. They're sturdy, easy to spot, and worth every penny.
