Well, This Combo Bag-Jacket Is One Way to Get Around Those Airline Weight Limits

The TSA doesn't mess around with the weight requirements for bags on airplanes, but there's finally a way to bypass the system without having to wear the same clothes for your entire vacation. The Jaktogo is a big puffy duffel bag that you can stuff extra baggage in (about fifteen kilograms or 33 pounds' worth, to be exact). But if the bag's about to cost you an extra fifty bucks, you can then convert it into a jacket and wear that thing through security. You'll still have to get that thing down the conveyor belt, so don't think you can stuff it full of giant-sized bottles of shampoo and hand lotion.

You'll look like a cross between Grimace and the Michelin Man, but it's still totally worth saving that fifty bucks.
