The BauBax travel jacket is an amazing jacket that has made my long haul flights immensely easier and far less chaotic. Choose from a range of styles including bomber jacket, windbreaker, vest and sweatshirt and keep everything you need to hand within easy reach. Prices start at US$157.
It’s well worth the money and I never leave home without it when travelling. It has a range of pockets for devices, sunglasses, money, passports, chargers, headphones and whatever else you like to keep close to hand. I also kept nappies and wipes in a pocket, lollipops/treats/bribes for the journey and my cabin liquids in a see-through bag.
Each BauBax travel jacket comes with a range of highly useful accessories including:
Retractable keychain with whistle and bottle opener
Microfiber cloth for sunglasses (built-in)
Zipper pen with stylus (x3 extra refills for the pen)
Built-in inflatable neck pillow & eye mask
built-in microfiber cloth
The new 2.0 design comes with added features including earplugs with a case, Airpod straps, a blanket, inflatable footrest
Security is a headache at the best of times at the airport, but add three young kids to the mix and it’s a disaster waiting to happen. With this jacket, I literally take it off, put it in the tray and there are all of my electronics in one place (minus the laptop) as well as all of the liquids.
I used to get in a right mess searching for everything while holding onto at least one child who was desperate to break for freedom. We’ve all been there – or at least seen someone who has and it’s horrendous.
Anyway, if there’s one thing I highly recommend for any frazzled parent who regularly travels abroad with young ones, it’s this… and I don’t ‘highly’ recommend things lightly.
