Wearing your carry-on luggage?

Do you have a peeve about the limited amount of carry-on luggage you are allowed to bring onboard the aircraft? What if someone tell you that the jacket you wear can hold up to 15kg worth of stuff?

Getting to SFO airport
That was just her luggage.

And combined that with a reall carry-on bag, you could almost double the weight of things you can bring with you? Especially in the throes of winter when you already have lots to carry with you…

Look no further. Here’s the ‘airport jacket‘.

If you read the article in the link, you will know that this is yet another ‘necessity is the mother of invention’. With lots of carry-on stemming from traveling with a small child, the inventors tried stuffing all of their things in their pockets to avoid paying extra.

So with 14 deep pockets, this product is said to provide you with the option of stuffing enough things and avoid checking in luggage altogether. Though in our opinion there will be certain things you simply cannot bring with you…such as scissors or shampoo bottles  that exceeds the customary 100ml limit. And so we note that this is probably a product more adept for folks who are on short travel stints.

One practical thing though is that you do not sit with this on throughout the flight. Sure you can, but it will be very very uncomfortable we think. You will still fold it away like any clothing into a “bag” and tuck it beneath your seat in the overhead compartment. Unless you bought a ‘basic economy’ ticket (read here), which would bar you from the privilege of using the overhead storage…

This unfortunately is only at the conceptual phase of development, so cannot run out there and buy one. Venture capital support is required to get this off the ground. Do you think this is a commercial viable product? Would you buy one?

    1. Well we suppose the laptop and tablets might already come in at a few kilos totaled. The videos in the article showed how things can be stuffed into the jacket but stopped short of weighing it!

  2. That’s a great idea! Not an issue with airport control as you have to take off coats and put them in those trays to be scanned. Though you’d have to take out your plastic pouch of toiletries and your iPad.

    1. Oh do you have to for the toiletries? Thot so long as <100ml its ok. We just zip-lock it into plastics. And for sure the electronic devices one need to set aside separately for scanning…can't avoid that now!
