It's the Swiss Army Knife of vacation gear.
The smallest task for the BauBax's jacket is to keep its wearer warm. The coat has 15 different travel-themed functions that even the most seasoned of gadget hoarders can appreciate—blow-up neck pillow, earphone holders, hand-warming pockets, gloves, passport pocket, and an eye mask, just to name a few. While this would most definitely come in handy in-flight where the carry-on storage is generally annoyingly out of reach, its real shining moment may be in the security line where onlookers can openly gawk at the true defintion of organization. Really though, plan it right and all of the things you need to empty onto the conveyor belt can easily be accessed with the unzip of a zipper.
For understandable reasons, this project took off on Kickstarter. The project has currently raised $1,084,767 with 43 days left in the campaign. Similar gadget-toting designs add bulk, but the BauBax is suprisingly sleek for the size of its functionality. Check out the video below to learn more about the jacket and its designers:
