Extra travel items can be stowed in the giant pockets of this wearable luggage to get around strict hand baggage restrictions on low-cost airlines.

Engineer John Power came up with the Jaktogo after he was forced to check-in overweight hand baggage on multiple business trips, wasting valuable time. "Having to deal with this situation gave birth to the idea of Jaktogo," said Power's team. "It is a coat and it is a bag at the same time."

Items that don't fit into a small case with other travel essentials can be stored in the pockets when the bag size and weight are checked at the desk and before boarding.

The original long-sleeved polyester jacket has fourteen pockets in various sizes, which the designers claim can hold up to 15 kilograms of luggage.

The jacket folds down into a bag to put through airport security and store away while on board the plane.

Different straps allow the bag to be worn over the shoulder or carried by hand. Demin and leather versions are also available.

The sleeveless Ponchotogo and women's Dresstogo that has storage in the skirt were recently introduced into the collection, both with ten pockets.

The Jaktogo team recommend the garments should used in bag form when possible. "We don't recommend that you sit while wearing the Jaktogo because of comfort," the team said.

Jaktogo is on the market since 2010, making it the pioneer in wearable luggage technology. The inventor of Jaktogo, John Power, is an engineer who had to travel on a weekly basis because of his work and thus was trying to optimise his time at the airport. As low cost airlines started to take over the industry the many luggage restrictions they brought started to augment the transit times at airports. Power was always confronted with having to check-in his hand luggage because one or two extra kilos causing not only extra costs but also extra time having to wait for his luggage. It was also a common situation people to be stopped from boarding for the same reason. Having to deal with this situation gave birth to the idea of Jaktogo. It is a coat and it is a bag at the same time. The original Jaktogo is a long sleeve coat with 14 various sized pockets that can accommodate up to 15 kilograms of luggage.

Currently the Jaktogo has two new members - Ponchotogo and Dresstogo. The Ponchotogo is a sleeveless version of the Jaktogo with ten various sized pockets suitable for warm climates. The Dresstogo is a lady version of the Jaktogo with a balloon shaped skirt, again benefitting from ten various sized pockets. Both are made of the same light and durable polyester material and carry the same characteristics as the Jaktogo itself.

We advise our clients to wear the Jaktogo products as much as possible in a tote/bag form. We don't recommend that you sit while wearing the Jaktogo because of comfort. It's preferable that you put all hard items such as shoes, computers etc in your carry on, if however this is not possible the Jaktogo could accommodate that as well. We'd also advise when passing through security to present the Jaktogo in a bag form, as it should be during the flight.

    Heh, nailed it. Maybe not as a design itself, but as a provocation to discuss luggage vs. obesity/other restrictions on flight. I wonder how cheap operators would respond to this?

    • satch

      So far they have no problems. If you visit their Youtube site you will see and hear from Ryanair’s big boss saying on record that they don’t care what anybody wears so long as the the don’t cause any security problems.

  • ciuskaccio

    Perfect to to travel with Ryanair with hand luggage only.

  • The hostess

    This is so depressing…

    • satch

      Depressing is having to pay extra for hand luggage.
      Only fools pay extra Clever people use a Jaktogo.

      • dx_xb

        Yeah. You will look super trendy as well.

      • The hostess

        Soon this Jaktogo will be prohibited or the airline will ask people to get on the scale…

  • martini-girl

    I thought exactly the same thing.

    How is this going to save any time when as soon as you are spotted by security, you will be whisked away to some office where you will be required to strip off your Jaktogo and every pocket emptied for a search?

    But I see that the last paragraph advises “when passing through security to present the Jaktogo in a bag form, as it should be during the flight.” So what is the point then?

    And did the engineer that designed this ever think to hook up with a fashion designer? Cause the “lady version” it is so devoid of style that even if someone did think it a great idea, it is so ugly that no one would be caught wearing it.

    • pick

      Confident women will wear it…

      “But I see that the last paragraph advises “when passing through security to present the Jaktogo in a bag form, as it should be during the flight.” So what is the point then?”

      They don’t check luggage sizes/weight at security, only very occasionally at check-in (if you didn’t check in online) and more commonly at the gate where you would wear it as a coat until boarding.

    Next thing to be banned by every airline… this thing. Don’t waste your money!

  • Fed Fef

    Actually, I think this is pretty awesome. There is no way they can ban something that you wear. On my last flight I wore 10 dresses, because I did not want to pay 30 pounds to check in another luggage, and no one told me anything. I went through security looking like a dumpling. As long as the alarm does not go off, you are fine. And if they do ban this brand, just make your own, there is no way they can ban that.
