    I think I've been traveling long enough to get the idea but I have no such garment nor do I intend to buy one. . I've seen many videos on packing tight but rolling the clothes gets me more room.

    We became big fans of oversize ziplock bags to reduce bulk and also keep outfits together.

    I certainly would not wear them, but then I don't mind checking luggage.

    Can buy "vacuum bags" too...heavier plastic, suck the air out and they compress amazingly well.

    BTW? You have "outfits"? Does this involve feathers?

    Been flying a lot lately, airlines (American/Delta) REALLY picky on carry-ons---rejecting a bag I used often in the past...
    try to pick someplace with a place with washer/dryer...
