We've ALL been there: you're in the queue at the airport, about to check in your bags and you're sweating profusely over the hefty excess baggage fees you're going to have to pay up.

But now, there's a product to ensure that won't ever happen again.

The Airport Jacket, designed by Claire Murphy, is an innovative piece of clothing that will allow you to wear up to 15 kilos of luggage, while looking chic AF.

Basically, all you need to do is pack the jacket with whatever supplies you need (your laptop, tablet, two pairs of shoes if ya want, a pair of jeans, five t-shirts, a jumper and even a camera, etc.)

The second step is ~wearing~ the jacket, which features three zippers so you can customise it depending on where you are travelling to. And finally, when you decide you no longer need to wear the jacket, you can use the built-in duffle bag to store it.

AMAZING.
AMAZING.

The only issue? Well, it's not actually available yet, but you can back up Claire's groundbreaking design right here on Kickstarter.

In the meantime, a similar product to ensure you never pay excess baggage fees is available.

Raden's new high-tech bag (which comes in the prettiest shade of pink EVER) currently has more than 7,000 people on its waitlist.

Why? For one, the app-enabled case lets you know how much it weighs, the location of the bag, updates on traffic to the airport and also charges your phone or laptop. It even has a live chat feature that gives you answers to your customer service questions in real time.

Neat, huh?

The bag will set you back $521, but when you think about it, you've probs already spent that amount (and some) on baggage fees.
