Redux vs session variables & react state


I was wondering if there is any reason to use redux with meteor, besides timetravel. I would just use react state for local UI state and session variables for state that is used in multiple components. I can see the benefit of redux with non meteor applications, but the availability of session variables and minimongo as a store seem to neglect the benefits of redux. Is there any advantage that I gain when using redux in meteor? … I am aware that meteor 1.5 will eventually integrate apollo which uses redux, but I need to decide now for an upcoming project based on 1.4
