You might be able to find a sweet deal for a flight online, but once you get to the airport and realize how much extra you’re going to have to pay to check just a single bag, it stops being so sweet. The only solution is to pack as light as possible, hopefully squeezing all your clothes into a carry-on, or suck-it-up and wear something like the Rufus Roo.

In short, it’s a light travel jacket with a collection of regular and super-sized pockets that lets you carry up to 22 lbs. worth of crap, including shoes, shirts, pants, books, and even laptops and wine bottles. You’re going to look like a complete tool while making your way through an airport with it on, and it can’t be the most comfortable thing to wear during your flight, but at least you’re saving a few bucks right? Available now for ~$47 (£29.95) for large and medium adult sizes and ~$39 (£24.95) if you want to turn your kids into vacation pack mules too.

    I like the idea of lessening the load of the baggage. But it doesn’t look that good. The 22 lbs limit seem nice. I just hope that the company can improve the design and the weight limit :)

    This would be a brilliant idea. Sadly, Ryan Air actually demands you empty your pockets into your hand luggage before flying :(

    I used a more extreme method a few years ago.  I put my backpack on, and then put my (long) coat on OVER the backpack.

    Who’s going to mess with a hunchback.  You, lady?  YOU?
