Businessman Andrew Gaule invented this coat with huge pockets in frustration at seeing fellow budget passengers charged over the odds for their luggage.
‘This jacket allows you to carry on board everything that you would otherwise have to pack in the hold. The pockets are big and strong enough to take 10kg of luggage, including even laptop computers or bottles of wine.‘
A recent study showed that the budget airline’s extra luggage charges have resulted in a dramatic change in the way people pack for holidays. The Co-operative Travel study found that a quarter of all leisure budget air passengers now either take only hand luggage or share a hold bag.
