What do I need to know before buying a jacket for travelling?

When you’re travelling far from home, each item of carefully chosen travel clothing becomes a treasured possession that you trust and rely on every single day. Items like your travel jacket are your best friends that provide reassuring practicality, confidence and enjoyment, as you relax in the knowledge that you’re ready for whatever challenge your adventure may throw at you.

Selecting a travel jacket really depends on your priorities and the type of trip you’re undertaking. If you’re heading for cold climes or exposed trekking territory, then a heavier duty hardshell hiking jacket may be just the ticket as your outer layer. Beneath that, or as your outer layer in more temperate or warm environments, you’ll want a travel jacket that offers a very different set of qualities and performance features.

Fabrics and travel jacket design

Modern travel jackets combine innovative fabrics with thoughtful design, offering great looks wherever they’re worn, and an abundance of practical benefits. Remember that it’s harder to look after your clothes when you’re on the road, so look for a travel jacket that’s:


Easily washable 

Wrinkle resistant

Comfort is paramount too, so invest in a jacket with a high quality finish that incorporates:

High-stretch fabrics 

Anti-stain treatment

Good breathability

Sun protection 

Water repellency

Pockets are invaluable when you’re travelling or trekking – you want multiple places where you can organise and stash items. For some (payment cards, cash, passport, boarding pass) it’s important to have secure, hidden pockets, while you’ll need flexible, easily accessible places for others (your smartphone, map, snacks and water bottle).

Practical, comfortable multi-pocket safari style jackets and gilets are popular options. Discreet and stylish, this type of travel jacket lends itself to every situation, from global travel adventures and challenging multi-day treks, to day to day exploring on your doorstep or further afield.
