Nearly 18,000 crowdfunders have invested more than $3.2 million – more than 65 times the initial crowdfunding campaign goal – in the new BauBax 2.0 Travel Jacket, the most popular apparel and fashion product in the history of Kickstarter.

On a journey to match the success of its original BauBax Travel Jacket, which raised $11.6 million to become the most-funded travel product in crowdfunding history, the company’s encore BauBax 2.0 Travel Jacket comes with 25 features – 10 more than its predecessor.

Designed to solve all travel-related problems in one jacket, features include a built-in neck pillow with one-press deflation, travel footrest, eye-mask, travel blanket, detachable gloves, battery charger pocket, AirPod straps, drink pocket holder, microfiber cloth to clean eyewear lenses, a foldable travel bottle, earplugs, a stylus/pen combo zipper and many more (full list of 25 features here).

The jacket is designed with special storage areas for passports, wallets, tablets, smartphones, earphones, sunglasses, an Apple pencil, AirPods, portable chargers and every important item.

Instead of scrambling to unload pant pockets and trying to find ID, the jacket’s strategic pockets give quick access to a passport and boarding pass and then everything else is in the jacket to take it off and slide through the scanner – enabling BauBax 2.0 travelers to glide through airport security with ease.

BauBax 2.0 is also a stylish and functional jacket for all activities beyond travel including daily commutes, hiking, weekend fun and everyday use. It’s available for men and women in four styles: sweatshirt, bomber jacket, windbreaker and vest.

Only five days remain in the campaign for backers to jpurchase the jacket at a crowdfunding discount -- joining the thousands of travelers who have invested in the versatile jacket that’s a ‘must-have’ item for making any trip comfortable and hassle-free.
