Here's what you need to be aware of prior to purchase. First, the sizes run SMALL. I contacted the Baubax customer service in advance and did an online chat. The customer rep was very helpful and i decided on an XL for the bomber jacket when i normally would wear a L. I am glad i did because XL was a good fit and a L would have been uncomfortable. Second, the eye shade is great for those flights, but you are constantly fighting it out in the real world. It keeps flopping down in front of your eyes when you are trying to walk around and see where you are going. I kept stuffing it back under the hood, but eventually it would work its way out again. Very annoying. Third, the built in fingerless gloves are awesome - until you don't want them. Same problem as the eye shade. How do you stow them out of the way when you don't need them? I was constantly stuffing them back under the sleeves and they would catch on my watch and bulk up around the cuffs of my long sleeve shirt.
I spent three days in the high mountains of Darjeeling where it was wet and cold and the jacket kept me warm and dry. It is not a parka, but for a lightweight windbreaker style jacket, it performed well. In Mumbai, Kolkata, New Dehli it was too warm to wear and stayed in the suitcase.
Overall, i think the Baubax delivered on their promise and the jacket was worth the money. They need to do some fine tuning on the features, but i recommend you purchase it.
The fit: It's rather tight. I usually wear a MED, so that's what I ordered. I can't wear anything other than a short sleeve T-shirt under this without having fit issues (a little more on this later). I would have returned it for a LG, but the return fees for the first run was cost prohibitive and I thought it may loosen up with time.
The features: This coat is all about the features. I like all the pockets, the pen and the glasses cloth. The extended sleeves with the thumb holes are nice in cold weather, but can be annoying because it's rather tight and can't be removed. The "Sleep Mask" on the hood seems nice, but doesn't really block out any light from the bottom so it could use some improvement. The included inflatable travel pillow is actually pretty nice, but the weird storage pocket in the hood for it is awful. During the kickstarter it was implied that the pillow would be part of the collar, and that is not the case.
Build: The build of this coat my be the worst part. The armholes of this coat are so high/tight that when I sit down I feel like I can't breathe (I know that's weird, but that's what happens). Also all the arms are sewn on separately, so there is a good size seam that tightly runs under you armpit and over your shoulder. In addition to this, the Material for the body of the coat is a nice silky material, but the inside of the sleeves are lined with a fleece like material the will bundle up the sleeves of any shirt you wear up to your armpits (This is SUPER annoying). My last gripe is that the zipper pull is on the Left side. I don't know if this is on purpose or not, but it drives me crazy.On the positive side I will say that the sewing and the materials used seem to be high quality and it is surprisingly waterproof, even if they seem to have been assembled without much thought/testing...
Overall this coat is not awful and I still plain to wear it on occasion. However, I would not recommend this coat to anyone at this price and this build quality.
