The travel industry is constantly coming up with weird and wacky inventions to make life in the air more comfortable, affordable and generally just a bit easier.
So, with airlines cutting costs, charging more and even ending carry-on luggage, two budding entrepreneurs spotted an opportunity.
Andrew Benke and Claire Murphy created the Airport Jacket which claims to give passengers a whopping extra 15kg of carry-on luggage.
The owners of an Australian marketing company, the couple invented the jacket which has 14 deep pockets to store your shoes, laptop and whatever other gadgets you might need on a flight.
The trench coat style can be worn by men or women and also turns into a handy bag for walking through the airport.
It sounds good, but like all Kickstarter campaigns, we’re not sure if this invention will get off the ground (pun intended).
