Do you want your travel experience to go a bit more smoothly?
That's an easy question, of course you do. One way to expedite the travel process and relieve the stress it brings is to re-think how you pack: the Stuffa Jacket, a wearable vest, is capable of holding enough clothes for a weekend excursion.
Gizmodo recently featured the vest, created by U.K.-based designer Sandro Cafasso. The jacket has 12 compartments, four large ones on the back panels and eight smaller ones on the front, encased by an elasticized netting that forms an extra lining. Gizmag found the vest capable of holding a surprising amount of cargo, including "a pair of jeans, a light hoodie, a pair of long shorts, four t-shirts, six pairs of socks, four pairs of gentleman's undergarments, and a winter scarf." In addition to offering more even weight distribution than traditional backpacks or travel bags, the Stuffa also functions perfectly well as an article of clothing.
Others have made attempts at creating a puffer-jacket-as-luggage-carrier, like the more cumbersome Suitcase Coat and several makeshift versions by travelers looking to avoid the stringent luggage rules of low cost airlines like Ryanair or EasyJet.
The Stuffa will be released in November and will retail for $148.
