Our founders – Yoganshi & Hiral tied knot in 2013 and before their first anniversary Hiral had to move to Chicago for his MBA. This started a series of frequent flights between Chicago and San Francisco to help with their long-distance relationship. You may know that flights from Chicago to San Francisco are up to 8 hrs. Long (including lay overs). Every time Hiral traveled to the west coast, he would try to catch up on sleep and carry a bulky neck pillow, and if he forgot to carry his pillow (which he always would), he ended up buying a $25 pillow at the airport. This laid the foundation for the idea of solving all travel related problems with one jacket – designed with everything a traveler wants and needs.
Launched in 2015, BauBax 1.0 travel jacket had 15 features, including a neck pillow, eye mask, gloves, stylus pen, tech pockets and much more. Four styles of jackets, sweatshirts, windbreakers, bombers and blazers available in both men and women, in a variety of sizes and color options.
