When a sea of similar-looking luggage comes rolling down the baggage- claim belt, don't count on your little name tag to keep someone from grabbing your bag by mistake. But if your bag sports a big yellow tag that says BACK OFF or WRONG ONE in bright red, you'll likely ward off careless bag-grabbers and be able to spot what's yours. Tude Tags are 7-inch-long, double-layer luggage tags made of heavy- duty polyester webbing, embroidered with the same pithy saying on each side, and a triangular steel split key ring. Inside, the tags have two clear plastic pockets, one for a name and address card, the other for a copy of your itinerary in case the bag goes astray. Other Tude options: DON'T EVEN, NOT YOURS, and HANZZOFF.
Tude Tags are $29.99 for a set of three at www.tagsforbags.com; 1-888- 261-8211.
