With a hidden feature in every nook and cranny, a jacket becoming of James Bond has raised nearly $900,000 on Kickstarter.
The secret-agent-esq Baubax jacket is designed for the world traveler who wants everything at their fingertips. It hosts 15 functions in one garment.
Much of the jacket’s functionality is contained in the various integrated pockets that do everything from hold your passport and sunglasses to inflating into a neck pillow during long plane rides. Yep, you heard right.
There are also traditional pockets for your hands, one for your smartphone and another for carrying a tablet. Additional pockets include one for a travel blanket – sold separately – and another for a portable charger.
There is even an insulated pocket that acts much like a koozie, keeping your drinks cold for extended periods of time.
With a removable hood and digit-warming gloves that pull from the sleeves over your hands, the blazer can go from casual fun to serious meeting faster than you can say “Moneypenny.”
It has a collapsable pen in the zipper that doubles as a stylus.
It is available in four styles, including a sweatshirt, bomber, windbreaker, and the blazer. The women’s jackets have a similar line up as well.
Far surpassing a fundraising goal of $20,000, the company has raised $895,681 and counting. Starting at just $119, it’s not hard to see why this jacket has got so much love.
As travel jackets go, it’s tough to top everything that the Baubax has too offer. It packs a huge amount of versatility and functionality — some of it comical, to be sure — into a stylish package we’re sure 007 himself would be proud to wear.
