This Genius Travel Jacket Is Basically a Wearable Suitcase
This brings a new meaning to traveling light.
Finally, you can ditch your heavy suitcase and stuff all your essentials into one very useful travel jacket. Even your pillow.
The BauBax jacket, made by San Francisco-based husband and wife team Hiral Sanghavi and Yoganshi Shah, is the ultimate travel jacket that has 15 built-in pockets and features.
Among the things you can organize in this one piece of outerwear are a power bank, an eye mask, fingerless gloves, stylus pen, sunglass holder pocket, earphone holders, two fleece-lined hand warming pockets, and pockets to hold a smartphone, 10-inch tablet, a drink, passport, and inflatable pillow.
And you can do all that and not look like you’re smuggling something through the airport. You can choose from four style options, including a blazer, bomber, windbreaker, and a sweatshirt that come in both men and women’s sizes and different colors. That’s a lot of choices.
Jackets normally range in price between $200 and $300, and you can get one at ebags.com. You can even purchase some accessories like a pocket blanket or a collapsible pocket bottle. Now you can travel anywhere with literally just the shirt (or, jacket) on your back.
The BauBax jacket is one of a few travel jackets on the market, much like the ScotteVest jacket ($95), which includes many of the same pockets and functions. Or, if you really want to downsize, you can buy the vest version (from $85).
