(7/28 Reposting as the Baubax Ultimate Travel Jacket 2.0 has transitioned to Indiegogo and is scheduled to ship next month)

Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products on Kickstarter that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about Fluent Forever (an app to learn languages), and the Voyage Travel Bag among others.

Travel related kickstarters:


Today I was going to share a Kickstarter that is billed as “The Ultimate Travel Jacket 2.0” by Baubax

Ultimate Travel Jacket details

Here are a few of the details on the Ultimate Travel Jacket

It lists 25 different features, some of which seem more useful than others.  For instance, a sunglass or passport pocket seems more useful than say… an Apple pencil pocket :-).

Ultimate Travel Jacket kickstarter options

If you want to back the Ultimate Travel Jacket 2.0, you have a few options

  • For $139, you can get either a sweatshirt or windbreaker
  • $149 gets you the vest
  • $159 gets you the bomber jacket
  • And there are a variety of other options and combinations if you want to buy multiples

The Ultimate Travel Jacket 2.0 – it’s already more than met its goal of $50,000 with over $4,000,000 raised, so it’s likely to be produced – estimated ship date August 2018.

When I posted this earlier, there were some comments (see below) about disappointments with the first version of the jacket – it appears that they have made quite a few improvements with version 2.0 and again, it is scheduled to ship next month

Do any of you have any experience with the Baubax Travel Jacket?  Planning on backing this kickstarter?  Leave a note in the comments
