Be happy, you’re bypassing bag fees!

This is a review of the Baubax: The World’s Best Travel Jacket which I waited forever to receive. Think James Bond meets Inspector Gadget. The Baubax travel jacket has a pocket for everything from your passport to your iPad. It has a hood to keep you dry and enough zippers to make you forget where you placed half of your stuff. Even with all these bells and whistles, the best feature of Baubax’s travel jacket is the illusion it creates that my pockets are empty.

As I had written, when I traveled on WOW air, the airline had a strict 5 kilo carry-on policy. Mindful of this, I stuffed everything from my Samsung Fast Charge to the rest of My Travel Technology into my pockets to assure that I would make-weight. If I had to guess, I’d have to say that my overstuffed turkey hoodie weighed more than the book bag that I had brought. Business cards, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, and even a long sleeve shirt were strategically placed in each of the compartments of this architectural marvel.

Besides using the jacket as a mule to bring more than the permitted amount of cargo, I also found the jacket handy for going through security quickly. For TSA PreCheck, all I had to do was throw my phones in one of the pockets and walk through without having to take the time to repack.

For day-to-day use, I found the jacket to be very comfortable and very warm. While I do have suggestions to improve the jacket including zippers on the front pockets and a pen that is more reliable, I am very happy with this purchase. Eventually the jacket will pay for itself as I will continue to use it to avoid paying silly bag fees.
