Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The holiday season is in full swing, and on top of spending a lot on gifts, getting home to see family can cost a lot of money and time - especially if you're flying.

Add in all the baggage fees, weight limits, and airport lines, it's enough to send any frequent flyer packing.

It's the latest line in luggage, and travelers tune in, you can wear it.

Holiday travel to head home to see all those good little boys and girls can be a little stressful.

But this year may be different, because Santa has a brand new bag.

You don't need a Santa suit or a fake beard.

Bill Meier/ Fargo Traveler: “Mine's real (beard).”

To know checking bags is a hassle.

Greta Krier/Flying to Vegas: “We've had some issues with that today.”

There's Jaktogo, a new way to save some time and money at the airport.

I don't even have to carry it on my back, but it has a pretty jolly fit when I wear it.

Soheil Agazade/California Traveler: “You look awesome.”

The latest in traveler technology.

What would you say if you could wear your bag?

Krier: “We wanted to, that's what we would love to do.”

Lanette Bowman/Coming In From California: “Now that is a slick idea.”

It's a pretty jacked up jacket, perfect for people in my line of work.

Meier: “I don't travel a lot.”

Only on Christmas Eve?

Meier: “Oh yeah.”

As you can see, it has plenty of places

Meier: “You've got lots of pockets.”

To pack in your presents.

Meier: “The goodies.”

I let the good travelers try it on.

Agazade: “It's actually not that heavy.”

"It's kind of heavy"

But some just wanted to see what was inside.

What else do you have in there?

Agazade: “Ah let's see, oh wow. I wasn't expecting that.”

They found even without the latest in fashion.

Does it put on some pounds?

Bowman: “Doesn't show much really.”

Agazade: “It does come in different colors?”

They've got function in the bag.

Agazade: “It does come in different colors?”

Here's where it gets a little tricky.

This coat slides right down the chimney, but when it comes to getting through security, you'll be on TSA's naughty list if you don't take it off first.

So whatever you use to get around this holiday.

Meier: “You have your own means of transportation.”

If you tow your tidings using Jaktogo.

All it takes is a little Christmas magic.

And quicker than you can say good Saint Nick, you're home for the holidays, with some extra jingle in your pocket.

Peter Krier/Flying to Vegas: “Well if it saves me fifty dollars every time I fly, I'm all for it.”

Bowman: “You know that's the ultimate Christmas gift for the traveler.”

To get your hands on your own Jaktogo, or dresstogo or ponchotogo, you'll have to go online.

The product line is based in Europe and starts around $100.
