Here's a Way to Tweak the TSA: Wear All Your Carry-On Luggage in This Coat
Ever want to fly carry-on-only, but couldn't fit a hair dryer and 12 pairs of shoes in your tiny roll-aboard? Here's a solution so absurd, so unattractive, and yet so darn brilliant we can't believe we didn't think of it first!
Say hello to JakToGo, a wearable luggage system that'll help you get as much extra stuff as you want onto the plane—disguised as a coat!
Check out how it works in this video:
The Jaktogo luggage-coat was invented by Belgium-based engineer John Power, who is a frequent traveler and was getting tired of paying tons of extra fees for baggage.
"Ever since the airlines started restricting luggage allowances and introducing new fees, etc., it has become more time consuming and expensive to travel," he told the Daily Mail. "I was struggling to find a way to avoid endless waiting to collect check-in luggage, without adding to the already growing price tags of budget airlines."
"I have seen people being left at the airport because of a few kilos extra or being forced to check in their carry-on for the same reason," he said. "It seemed very unjust to me. I've seen many people trying to beat the system so I decided to look for a solution where you don't look like a complete fool."
Jaktogo luggage basically looks like a giant garment with giant pockets—and yes, Power wears it himself when he travels!
