Kickstarter: World's Best Jacket Should Live Up to the Hype

I don't normally recommend Kickstarter projects, because they are not always reliable, but Baubax has already completed a successful crowdfunding campaign and delivered. Now the company is at it again with an improvement on the original, namely the World's Best Travel Jacket 2.0 ($109+). I have the first generation of the Baubax sweatshirt hoodie and am quite happy, so I am really looking forward to the upgrade.

The jacket has thick, premium material and I will be bringing mine on my upcoming trip to London, thanks to a ton of features, including a built-in inflatable neck pillow. There are other nice touches, such as a bunch of concealed pockets and a zipper handle that doubles as a removable pen and stylus.

The next version will also have an eye mask, gloves, blanket, a bottle, and even an inflatable footrest. Baubax is offering several variations, like vests, windbreakers, and even a bomber jacket, all sold in different colors. With all of these features, it's still available at a reasonably price, via the Kickstarter campaign. The only downside is you cannot try it in person, so you'll have to take my word for it that it's quite comfortable and practical.

Pros

  • Thick, premium material
  • Nice touches, like a zipper handle that doubles as a stylus
  • Built-in neck pillow, eye mask, gloves, etc.
  • Assorted colors
  • Reasonably price, via Kickstarter

Cons

  • Cannot try in person

Final Verdict

If you are looking for an accessory, look no further. The Worlds Best Travel Jacket from Baubax should meet your needs.
