CNN Money called the Baubax Travel Jacket “The swiss-army knife of travel wear”!
The jacket is made from high quality materials and comes in many different colors. There are styles for men and for women.
The Baubax startup was founded by Yoganshi Shah and her husband Hiral Sanghavi. It all started when Yoganshi noticed that Hiral was always forgetting his neck pillow when going on trips. They designed the jacket to be comfortable and functional. Everything needed to be in the right place so items could be easily accessible. They wanted to provide a piece of clothing that helps people take care of everyday problems. They got their project started with the help of Kickstarter.
