Some of you guys might recall that in July, we reported on the Swiss Army Knife of travel jackets called the Baubax. Turns out that we weren’t the only ones enamored by its features because as it turns out, the Baubax is Kickstarter’s most funded clothing project to date. Heck, on Kickstarter’s website, Baubax is ranked fifth in terms of most funded projects overall.
This puts it behind the likes of Pebble Time which is ranked first, followed by the Coolest Cooler which ranks second, the original Pebble in third place, and the Exploding Kittens card game in fourth. That is a pretty impressive achievement, especially when you consider that the jacket is well, just a piece of clothing.
However don’t let its simplicity fool you. Just in case you missed our earlier coverage, the Baubax jacket has 15 different features to it. For example there is a built-in neck pillow around the hoodie portion of the jacket. There is also a hidden eye mask for you to get some shut-eye while traveling.
There is also a small pouch to hold your drink, microfiber cloth to clean your glasses or smartphone display with, a zipper that doubles as a pen and a stylus, a pocket that will house a portable battery pack, earphone holders, and more. The project has raised over $8.7 million and at this time of writing, there is 7 hours left to get in on the action so if you’d like to pre-order the Baubax, hit up its Kickstarter now!
