Most jackets offer very little usefulness beyond their ability to keep you warm and dry, save for a few pockets to keep a few basic items safe. But the BauBax Jacket is a travel jacket intended to offer a little more, with 14 different uses beyond a jacket's standard capabilities.

Essentially a multitool in the form of clothing, the BauBax Jacket's features include a neck pillow and eye mask built into the hood, gloves built into the sleeves, a built-in microfiber cloth for cleaning glasses and/or touchscreens, and a zipper that doubles up as both a pen and stylus.

The pockets are all designed with a particular purpose in mind, such as holding a can of drink, keeping earphones free of tangles, and accommodating a tablet, a smartphone, sunglasses, and a passport, respectively. The garment will come as a sweatshirt, a windbreaker, a bomber, and a blazer, each of which is available for both men and women.

Production of the BauBax Jacket is currently being funded through a Kickstarter campaign, with its creators seeking US$20,000. It has already sailed past that goal, racking up a whopping $230,000 at the time of writing. A pledge of $109 is currently set to be rewarded with a BauBax Jacket, assuming the makers deliver on their promises. The creators of the garment plan to ship the finished product in November 2015.

The video below shows the BauBax Jacket in action, with its various elements being tested in the wild.

I've just bought a jacket from http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/Revolution-Plus-Jacket.shtml
They've been going a few years and he's made $50million from the business according to EDC.com. hence the kickstarter amount being met may show a bigger market. I am looking forward to getting the jacket and will look at Baubaux when they have a proven quality product. Mike

It's May 2016 received a defective jacket 2 months ago and can't get them to fix it unless I pay them an additional fee and send it back at my expense. After a waiting a month. I CAN'T GET AN ADDRESS TO SHIP IT TO EVEN IF I WOULD PAY THEIR EXTORTION!!!
