This coat will let you carry your bags for free

Recently Ryanair has started charging passengers $45 for carry-on bags. Not willing to part anymore of his money, a UK traveller found a way to circumvent the new hand luggage restrictions by sewing all his belongings to his coat.

Ryanair’s new carry-on bags surcharge charges up to 25 pounds – depending on the size of your bag – each way. Unwilling to pay any of the carry-on bags extra, Cimino spent about $70 getting an old coat adjusted so he could fit enough clothes for an overnight stay within the linings.

Cimino told The Sun “It’s not breaking any rules to try and take all of your luggage in your clothes.

“The coat fitted comfortably with all of the stuff in it and I even wore it around Belfast until we got to our accommodation.”

“It was very comfortable, not even noticeable – no one commented as I was getting on the plane, and going through airport security wasn’t hard either, I just took it off and put it in the tray.”

The Sun reported that Cimino has found ways to dodge the luggage charges in the past – particularly when going skiing.

“When I go snowboarding I have to pay for a snowboard bag on the plane, so I always put all of my clothes in too instead of paying for an extra suitcase.

“I’d rather go on lots of holidays than spend a lot on one.”
