    A new jacket that the designer hopes will be available by November of this year could help buyers sidestep the escalating charges that budget airlines are imposing for checked luggage.

    The Daily Mail has reported that the Stuffa jacket, the brainchild of Sandro Cafasso, is the equivalent of a wearable suitcase, with the sleeveless, puffer-style garment having a dozen built in storage compartments. According to the report, Gizmodo, a technology website, was able to pack the jacket with a pair of jeans, a light hoodie, a pair of long shorts, four T-shirts, six pairs of socks, four pairs of men’s underwear and a scarf.

    The jacket should be available in red and black, for men or women, and in addition to the two standard external pockets that such garments usually have, it is fitted with four large internal panels at the back and eight small ones at the front. With the panels being made of expandable netting, the wearer’s own girth is likely to be the biggest restriction on his or her carrying capacity!
