This trench coat is a carry-on bag you wear

Special to the Los Angeles Times

Why hassle with carry-on bags when you can wear the contents? Scottevest, makers of travel apparel with multiple internal pockets, has introduced a women's trench coat with 18 compartments, including specialized pockets designed to hold stuff as diverse as a lipstick, your eyeglasses, a water bottle, a smartphone and even tablet computers and e-readers.

Some of the pockets are transparent and touch-sensitive so you can control the device right through the pocket. You may provoke some curiosity when you send this coat through the airport X-ray machines, but your hands will be free to schlep aboard additional carry-on gear.

Vests and jackets with similar internal storage available in men’s styles as well. SeV Women's Trench costs $150. Info: Scottevest, (866) 909-8378.
