Suiting up

This story gives rise to additional questions:
A member of a Scottish boy band is "lucky to be alive" after collapsing with heat exhaustion on board a flight.
The 19-year-old, from Cumbernauld, had intended to take a suitcase and a small rucksack on board, but the airline only permits passengers to have one piece of hand luggage.
After being told he would be charged an additional fee to take the extra bag on board, he emptied the rucksack and wore the contents.
[He] was wearing four jumpers, six T-shirts, three pairs of jeans, two pairs of jogging bottoms, two jackets and two hats when he collapsed.
How did he manage to get all those clothes into what is described as "a small rucksack"?  And if all that stuff was in his rucksack, what did he have in his suitcase?  Just wondering ...
