Engineer John Power has invented a coat, priced at 56 pounds, which is made of light but strong polyester and has 14 variously sized pockets that can hold a total of 15 kg of luggage, the Daily Mail reported.

After boarding, the dress called Jaktogo can be folded up and carried as a shoulder bag. Power, 57, said that he travels twice a week using budget airlines.

Though the budget airlines' advertised ticket prices are often low, most of them charge extra for hold luggage.

However, they allow passengers to take one piece of hand luggage on board for free.

They also allow jackets or coats – so Power's invention allows travellers to by-pass the charges altogether, the report said.
