As the end of summer approaches, one needs to take along a jacket or two when traveling to stave away the nippy air. Here packable jackets can enable one to throw a jacket or two into one's carryon without adding bulk.

Take for example Lands' End Women's PrimaLoft Packable Jacket. Made with 100-gram PrimaLoft insulation, this jacket can keep one warm when frost hits the ground without adding weight to one's luggage. Thanks to a water-repellent finish, water rolls off the jacket while a windproof shell blocks the cold from sneaking in. Extra coverage is provided via a stand-up collar. Unlike some packable jackets that can be boxy, princess seams give this jacket a stylish shape. Also, it layers will so it can be combined with a sweater, layered tops or another jacket so one can adjust one's clothing depending on the weather. After use, the jacket packs into its own pocket for ease in traveling.

Those looking for a lightweight raincoat that packs well and can be worn solo or layered with a jacket, should check out Lands' End Lighthouse Packable Jacket. While some packable jackets look like a wrinkled mess when unpacked, his lightweight water resistant windbreaker feels soft and looks fresh when taken out of its pocket. An attached hood with an adjustable bungee works to keep one's head dry while elastic cuffs and an adjustable hem keeps the cold from coming in. Princess seams give a shape to this jacket, so it looks more stylish than your typical windbreaker.
