Oh, You Internet.

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Limiting luggage makes sense, just immagine if anybody could carry what they want. A few indians would fill the whole thing up. For those flying the "no luggage at all fares" there is a great gadget (pics taken inside-out). Holds 5kg of goods. enough for a few days trip.

Seriously, can you buy these?

Most look ridiculous, but I see the purpose.
I don't think it's a realistic alternative to a small free carry-on, but as the weight of those carry-ons is shrinking, (down to 7kg with Air Aisa) it could be a supplement for heavy items like jeans, jumpers and shoes.

I can also see the X-Ray guy marking it for a closer look, and you'll have to unpack your 'jacket' and look like a right weirdo.

I have flown shitty airlines in the US that charged for carry-on baggage as well. (Never flew with them again.)

Yeah, I would feel ridiculous in one of those things.

I think it looks quite neutral when correctly dressed.

The weird bulges would set off a search. I would have to show security my socks and unmentionables.

(I still see some value here.)

where do those body pocket jacket things stand with airlines? Do they allow them? Are they new and in a dubious grey area?

My guess is that an airline could not stop you if you had one of those jackets on

I suspect so few people are going to such lengths that it makes no difference to the airlines. It might get you an additional 5kg and you can get away with a 7kg free carry-on plus your super nylon padded coat. Maybe you'll save $25.
