With the option to be worn 3 ways: hip length, 3/4 length or full length, this stylish modular jacket has been tailored to hold up to 15kgs of luggage without making you look like a balloon or Violet Beauregarde after Willy Wonka warned her not to chew gum! 

Stylishly designed, The Airport Jacket is wearable luggage for the frequent flyer, enabling you to beat the baggage queues, avoid excess baggage fees and eliminate the risk of lost luggage!

 In three easy steps the Airport Jacket saves you money and time!

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why was The Airport Jacket developed?

 

With airlines like United Airlines beginning to charge for overhead carry-on baggage and other low fare airlines like Ryan Air severely restricting baggage allowances for the low fare economy traveler, we feel this is a stylish solution for frustrated travelers who can not pay for the all the additional costs.

 

Has there been any backlash/rejection from annoyed airlines whilst testing The Airport Jacket?

 

So far we have not been rejected from airlines as there are no rules around how much you can wear on board. As long as stick within guidelines around what type of luggage you can take on board, there is not an issue. This has been a practical idea designed for all the low fare economy travelers who pile on clothes and stuff in as many gadgets and items in their pockets as possible to minimize excess baggage costs!

 

How do you get past Airport Security?

 

Walking though airport security is not an issue. The Airport Jacket only needs to be worn when checking in and at the boarding gate.

 

When passing airport security, items that need to be taken out of the airport jacket is usually a laptop and electronics which you can easily unzip a pocket and pull out. Airport security are not looking at how you store your luggage, they are checking the contents of your luggage so we have not experienced an issue as long as you follow guidelines for carry on luggage.

 

The Airport Jacket has been designed so you can use it in 3 easy steps. Simply pack at home, wear when checking in and at the boarding gate. Once you are on your flight, all you need to do is store the jacket under the seat with our built-in carry bag that has been designed to fit most airline carry on requirements

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges for the creation, production and distribution of The Airport Jacket are minimal due to the designers extensive experience owning a promotional products company in Australia for over a decade.

Juice Promotions is a bespoke tangible marketing agency that has, for over a decade, developed reliable relationships with product suppliers both locally and offshore, and regularly produces quality products for international brands such as Coca Cola, Audi, Jack Daniels and Reckitt Benkiser. Due to this, the designers have a high degree of knowledge in product design and production and have strict policies around quality control as well as social and ethical auditing.

In conclusion, the designers see minimal risk in producing The Airport Jacket because the key suppliers chosen for the jacket, meet internationally recognised standards for social, ethical and quality compliance.
