Last week we tested the Rufus Roo luggage waistcoat – this week it’s the turn of the Jaktogo, the bag that thinks it’s a jacket.
The Jaktogo is a slightly more sophisticated way of beating the baggage charge. It’s basically a bag that you can turn in to a jacket, pass through check-in to avoid any hold-luggage fees, and then convert back to a bag for the rest of your journey. At 59.96 euros (about £53) it’s more expensive than the Roo – but it does offer more functionality.
We tested the XL size which is huge and had more than enough room for our tester’s wedding weekend luggage – which included an entire kilt, a kilt jacket, shoes and more.
Watch the video below to see how we got on:
– Loads of space (14 pockets in total) – so will easily hold your belongings and allow you to avoid a check-in bag – saving yourself up to £40 per return flight
– Looks like a normal jacket when worn
-Folds into a bag
-Durable, sturdy material is water and wind resistance; should stand up to prolonged use
– Available in custom-made leather or denim lines
Points for improvement
– Folding from jacket to bag is a little tricky at first and will take a bit of practise to get right
– Velcro zip wasn’t great to fasten when loaded
