Garments and gadgets that let you travel light and avoid extra charges on your next trip.

This was before plausible roller bags, Web sites for lightweight travelers, and all the digital folding headphones, smart phone stands and nanofiber clothing that make the light life easy. It was also before the cursed baggage fees–now beating them is almost like flying for free.

Of course, I would only fly if I couldn’t get an appointment for a colonoscopy!
It also makes the “safety” case that all that junk dragged into the cabin makes us ALL unsafe should an emergency occur. The TSA should be the bad guy, (It is already.) By enforcing the number and size restrictions on carry ons. The airlines SHOULD charge for all the carry on crap. That’s what SHOULD be discouraged! Make checked bags free; carry on costs!
If I were “king”, I’d proclaim the diktat throughout the land. And the serfs would rejoice.
If not for that, then for the fact we’d be using gold as a monetary standard and the gooferment would be cut down to size. (And, the airlines would be running the terminals, schedules, and “security”. Where passengers could sue in the “king’s” court for damages.)
And, peace and prosperity would be the rule though out the “kingdom”.
I can only wish!
