Packing for winter travel is much worse than packing for summer adventures. Sweaters, base layers and ski helmets take up much more space cthan tank tops and shorts. We’re continually looking for ways to streamline our wardrobes so that when we fly, it’s a breeze. One of our first steps is finding a lightweight down jacket that looks good, feels warm, packs down small and isn’t absurdly priced. The Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Jacket checks all those boxes. Bonus: it’s water-repellant so it can handle light rain and snow.
Nylon and down make up the shell and guts of this jacket. The 20 denier exterior is ultra light, yet doesn’t look cheap. Wear this jacket to any casual business events or over t-shirt and jeans — it blends with everything and adds a David Beckham-like effect to your wardrobe. This jacket stuffs into a sack about the size of a water bottle (credit the down insulation), so that you can toss it in the back seat of the car, into a backpack or a suitcase. When traveling, the Uniqlo Ultra Light Down jacket works double duty as an airplane pillow; it’s just the right amount of plush to rest your head.
While down jackets typically run at a higher price than some synthetic jackets, it’s hard to find a better deal than this one at Uniqlo. Right now, you can buy a down jacket for just $30, which is 50 percent off. There are 11 colors to choose from, but only a handful are on sale.
