Packing Essentials: The Puffer Jacket

The ultimate layer piece, puffer jackets roll or fold up into mini sizes for easy packing, and are warmth masters.

If a colder climate is part of your travel plans this year, we’re thinking this jacket needs to be in your wardrobe. Knee-length, but still easily packable and super light, this will be your go-to walking through Stockholm or taking in the views on the Faroe Islands.

Hands down, one of the best travel purchases we ever made was picking up a Patagonia puffer while in Alberta. Classic, compact and undeniably warm. It’s everything you need.
