Most jackets just keep you warm and offer a few pockets for your stuff. But the BauBax does much more (in the words of Queen Bey, we don’t think you’re ready for this jelly).

The BauBax has 15 unique, travel-ready features aside from a jacket’s standard capabilities (warming, comfortable and stylish to boot). So, it’s pretty easy to see why it’s the most crowdfunded apparel product in history (it raised more than $9 million).

For those of you who have trouble sleeping during travel, it’s got you covered. It features a built-in inflatable neck pillow (that inflates within two seconds and deflates in one press) and an eye mask inside the detachable hood. You know, so you can easily shut out the rest of the world.

Cold from the AC blasting on the plane? No worries: built-in gloves that slide out of the sleeves, a hand-warming pocket and a pocket to carry your BauBax Blanket (sold separately) will keep you warm and cozy on the go. And speaking of pockets, this travel coat kicks other utility jackets to the curb. There are built-in earphone holders to keep your cords untangled and ready for instant use, a koozie drink pocket to not just hold your beverage, but also keep it cold (or hot, depending) and a 10-inch tablet pocket so you can free up space in your carry-on. It also boasts a smartphone pocket (for obvious reasons), a sunglasses pocket to protect your shades when you’re on-the-go, and a passport pocket for quick access to your boarding pass and ID.

Other features (yes, there’s still more) include a built-in microfiber cloth to clean your screen and glasses and a zipper that doubles as a pen or stylus.

No matter your preferred jacket style, there’s a BauBax to suit you. It comes in the following colors and models:

All styles are currently more than 40 percent off. Right now, you can get the world’s best travel jacket — a.k.a the BauBax — starting at just $109.99 from the Daily Dot Store.
