BauBax, the world’s best travel jacket with 15 distinctive features for everything a traveler needs, is now the 11th most funded Kickstarter campaign of all-time with over $4.5-million in contributions and counting (source: Kickstarter).

BauBax looks to enter the Top 10 most funded Kickstarter campaigns within the next week by passing Reading Rainbow, who raised $5.4M in 2014, and BauBax is on pace to enter the Top 5 before the campaign ends on September 3rd.

“Just beyond the halfway point of our campaign, we continue to see strong momentum thanks to consumers around the world who are stepping up and pre-ordering BauBax Jackets," said Yoganshi Shah, founder and Chief Design Officer of BauBax. “With more than 23,700 backers and counting, our customers are deciding this is a product they want and need to make their travel experiences easier and smoother.”

BauBax travel jackets are stylish, lightweight and comfortable and are loaded with so many features that they have picked up the nickname -‘The Swiss Army Knife of Travel Jackets’.

The 15 unique features include: a built-in and instantly inflatable neck pillow, eye mask, tech pockets of all sizes, a drink pocket, gloves, a zipper with a pen and stylus and more.

With a built-in neck pillow and eye mask, they are ideal for travelers who like to catch up on sleep on a long flight. Passports, wallets, tablets, smartphones, earphones, sunglasses, portable charger, pocket blanket and water bottles are just a few of the many items that can be carried in a BauBax jacket.

“We can’t thank our backers enough for their overwhelming support of BauBax and it's an important validation that proves that BauBax is a product that consumers have been waiting for,” said Hiral Sanghavi, co-founder and CEO of BauBax. "Once we pass the $5-million mark, we’ll have some exciting new features to announce."

BauBax Jackets are available until September 3, 2015 on Kickstarter in multiple colors and styles (sweatshirt, windbreaker, bomber jacket and wrinkle free blazer with removable hood).
