(NEWSER) – A new Kickstarter darling emerged this week—a jacket designed for travelers that has become the most successful clothing campaign in the crowdfunding site's history, reports UPI.

In fact, by raising $9,192,055 in the campaign that ended yesterday, the "World's Best Travel Jacket" is the fourth-highest Kickstarter project, period. "I knew we had a great idea, that we'd maybe get a million or two, but never $9 million," says entrepreneur Hiral Sanghavi, a 29-year-old MBA student at Northwestern who created the jacket with his designer wife, Yoganshi Shah, reports the Chicago Tribune. Their goal was to hit $20,000. The jacket comes in four styles (sweatshirt, windbreaker, bomber, and blazer) and has 15 features, including an inflatable neck pillow, a pocket that doubles as a cup-holder, and gloves in each sleeve.
