Travel tips

Going on holidays can be a stressful  time befor you even get to the airport so make sure you make the trip as easy as possible by following the rules of rge airlines.  

Make sure you check your airlines do’s and dont’s bedore you travel by going to their website and see what guidelines you should follow.

A good basic rule of thumb is if you think you should not bring it then don’t.  So many times we can get caught be bringing prohibited items on our travels as we sometimes forget about the vigilant security measures at our airports.

If we all packed wisely and followed the guidelines then our trip through security would be safer and more importantly it would be faster too.

I will post up a do’s and dont’s in my next blog to give you some good guidelines that are recommended.

Always travel safely.


Samsonite Lite-Shock

Samsonite’s newest, lightest Curv Product.

At Adamson Luggage, we found this product to be incredibly popular due to its extreme lightweight against competitor products attributed with its extreme core strength. See the bottom for information on the innovative ‘Curv’ material.

With a 10 year global guarantee attached to the case, the Samsonite Lite-Shock became an easy sell here at the store. Available in 4 core colours, Black, Copper, Petrol Blue and White.

With a compression strap on one side and a pocket divider on the other, the Samsonite Lite-Shock kept its weight down with the carry on weighing 1.7KG and the large 81cm weighing 2.8KG.  Don’t believe us on how incredibly strong it is? Check out the youtube video below!

Overall we find the product to be of fantastic quality and with current stocks at 30% off they are flying out! Available on our website at too!

Curv® is a new concept in thermoplastic materials that bridges the gap between commodity plastics and traditional fibre-reinforced materials. Curv® is ‘self reinforced’ because it comprises high performance thermoplastic fibres in a matrix of exactly the same material. Curv® is 100% polypropylene, but yields stiffness and strength values around 5 times those of regular PP. In addition, Curv® has a high strain to failure which in combination with good tensile strength offers tremendously high impact resistance, even at temperatures as low as -189 degrees Celsius!

Eastpak Tranverz small

The Tranverz range of bags from Eastpak has been around for a while and has a fantastic record. Available at Adamson Luggage.

It is the perfect cabin bag that is adjustable to suit all airlines as a cabin bag.

Recently it has been updated and it has never looked as good before. Available in many colours, but core colours remain the best sellers;  Black, red, double denim, black denim, Sunday grey.

The best part of the bag is the wheels as they are inline roller blade wheels which makes for easy wheeling over any surface. Also they have updated the base foot stand which is now far superior to the previous version and helps keep the base of the case well off the ground.

Best Barber experience in South Dublin



I have had the pleasure of visiting the best barber in Sth Dublin (or should I say Dublin) on a few occasions and I wanted to share it with you all.

This Barber shop has such a sense of Old traditional with a mix of new in it. You are made feel welcomed as a friend rather than just a customer when you walk into the shop. It is beautifully and very tastefully furnished to give you a relaxed experience as you walk in and the prices are very competitive too.

There is even treat if you dare to accept an offer of a drink (as long as your not driving of course).

The head barber is Andrew and he has a wealth of experience in this industry and he makes you feel at home when you arrive. He puts a lot of emphasis into making sure that you not just get a haircut but that you also get an experience when you are there which is a lost art nowadays.

If the shop is busy you can sit down and have a Nespresso Coffee and read the newspaper in the most comfiest chairs ever.

you can lay back, relax and enjoy their after haircut shampoo without discomfort. Yes that right they cut your hair first and then the wash your hair and finish it off with a facial hot towel for 5 mins that sends you into a beautiful peaceful bliss with music in the background.

They also have a fabulos rang of products from Shaving creams/ brushes, traditional razors, beards oils to name but a few.

So give yourself a treat and visit them and you will be surprised by the experience you get there.

The Aluminum Classic Flight is a beautiful product manufactured by the German company RIMOWA who are based in Cologne.

Great care and attention to detail has been put into the manufacturing process of this range of luggage and it shows.

TSA Locks

What are TSA Locks is a question that our customers often ask us so here is a simple explanation

TSA locks are required when traveling to the United States of America. TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration, they will require access to your bag for security inspection when you are not present. They can bypass your combination lock or your key lock with a master key that allows them to safely open your lock then close it after a security inspection.

TSA locks are easily recognised by the logo below:

In the USA and some other countries if your luggage does not use a TSA accepted lock the security officers can and will break it open for inspection and this is solely your responsibility.

Many luggage brands now use a TSA approved lock as the norm in their luggage but if your does not then you will need to purchase a TSA approved lock when traveling to the United States.
