Beat baggage fees by wearing your bag?

Posted: Updated:

Are you tired of all those extra baggage fees from the airlines? A man in Ireland has found a way around them. Instead of checking your luggage, you can carry it on with you.

Say hello to Jak-To-Go. It's a jacket that doubles as a bag. It has 14 pockets that can hold about 30 pounds.

Once you are finished stuffing your belongings in it, you can either carry it over your shoulder or fold it out and wear it like a coat.

The inventor says the idea is to get you through security quicker while saving you those hefty extra bag fees.

Basically you carry the bag up to security, wear it as a coat to avoid paying the extra fees, and then turn it back into a bag so you don't look weird wearing it.

The Jak-To-Go runs about $90.

Press play to hear from creator John Power.
