It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

obviously never flown long haul economy class"

Problem Solved?

I've just seen a link to this incredible jacket on one of the expat forums I participate in.  Check out the seriously amazing seV/Scottevest!


Scottevest - the way of the future?

Whilst I don't think this is something that you'd want to walk around all day wearing, it's certainly solved the problem of the airlines weighing your carry-on luggage.  With more and more airlines limiting you STRICTLY to one piece of hand luggage, this would really help. 

The theory is that you put the entire jacket, with all contents, in the tray at security, and breeze on through with no problems.  You've got no hand luggage to weigh, and you can walk straight off the plane at the end.  Apparently the jackets are designed to be a little roomy so you can wear them over the top of your normal clothes without you looking like you're a sausage squished into a small skin.

I always take one of my two jackets with the big pockets so I can quickly stash anything that weighs too much (purse, camera, packs of bacon ...), but I think these guys might have invented a real winner here.

There are many styles available on the website, for men and women.  Have a look and let me know what you think.  Does anyone actually have one of these amazing jackets?

(Yes, I know, you're wondering about the bacon.  Well, the German bacon is totally different from what we're used to, so I always try and bring some back from the UK with me.  Along with humous, flat bread, M&S crispy duck ready meals, microwave porridge sachets etc.).
