Travel Jackets That Are Easy to Pack

Let’s be honest. Winter travel is not fun.

Travel these days is pretty joyless any time, but when you have to pack big, bulky winter clothes, it’s even more annoying.

I found a lightweight, very packable winter jacket made by GoLite a few years ago. The company has since gone out of business, unfortunately, but the jacket lives on to fight another winter of chilly weather.


Anything below 20°F/-7°C will probably require something heavier like my favorite LL Bean parka.


In most cases, these lightweight and easy-to-pack jackets will get the job done.
