One thing I wear which helps me carry on more than the Airline’s 7kg is a Travel Vest.
There are several travel vests on the market but the one I use is a ScottEvest which has 24 pockets
Unlike a lot of photographer’s/fisherman’s vests the pockets aren’t really obvious.
The photo gives an indication of the pocket layout.
As well as carrying lots of extra weight it means that, if you put all your loose items in the vest, you can put the vest in the tray and walk through the scanner.
When I go through security, and get on the plane, the vest typically contains:
- Tablet computer + charger
- I -Phone + Charger
- I pod + Cable
- Power adapter for destination
- Noise cancelling earbuds
- Boarding pass
- Folding umbrella
It normally weighs 3-4kg!
Do you use a travel vest? . . . . which one?
I haven’t been paid or received any other benefit from this post.
