Stay Warm and Look Good for Winter Travel

    _SAM0713
    Packing for winter travel is practically an art form. You want to pack light, and keep warm, but still look good. During our recent trip to Japan, the average daily temperature ranges from -2 °C to 8 °C. We also experienced a sudden snow storm and the temperature dropped to -6 °C when we were up at the beautiful Mt. Oyama.

    How do we keep ourselves warm then? We brought along some down jackets from Universal Traveller for the trip and the jackets did a really good job in keeping us warm and shielding winds.

    Here’s some tips on choosing the right jacket for your winter holiday.

    -Pack your coat according to the coldest destination/temperature on your trip.
    -Pick a waterproof coat and don’t waste space on an extra rain jacket.
    -Go for a slightly oversized coat that you can easily wear lots of layers underneath.
    -If you’re spending most of your time in a seriously cold place, go for a long down-filled coat that’ll keep your thighs and bum bum extra cozy and warm!

    SLIM FIT DOWN JACKET WITH KNITTED PANEL

    This is one of my favourite jacket because of its length – it keeps my bum bum really warm! I love the detachable hood with adjustable stoppers too!

    The sleeves are just the right length for me and the diameter is just right as well. Notice the fabric cuff at the end of the sleeve? Not only it adds texture to the jacket, it also prevents wind, protecting my arms from the chill.

    The jacket is meant for -20 °C to 10 °C. I can easily zip it up or down depending on the weather condition.

    The items listed above are all from Universal Traveller Malaysia. It is not very difficult to pack for winter travel, just look at your current wardrobe, find the weak points, and invest in high-quality pieces that you can wear for years. I can foresee us wearing the same jackets for many coming winter holidays .
