At Lands’ End, we understand you might not always have a lot of extra space in your luggage when you’re packing for a holiday getaway. But, if you’re headed somewhere chilly for the holidays, you still want to be warm and comfortable. Our packable down coats offer a handy solution. You can choose outerwear that offers the warmth you need and packs up nicely to leave plenty of space in your luggage for everything else you're taking.
If you’re headed to somewhere chilly but not intensely cold, check out the selection of ultra-lightweight down packable jackets. When you want a jacket that offers warmth without the weight of a heavy coat, this is an eye-catching way to stay cozy. This type of jacket has a leaner profile than a parka-style coat, plus some other details to keep it compact enough for packing. For example, it may be hoodless with a stand collar. It may have sweater fleece arms, cuffs, and hems. Additionally, it's designed to fold and tuck it into its own pocket, which is handy when packing it for a trip.
When you’re headed somewhere that’s likely to be exceptionally cold, the selection of plus size packable down coats includes some exciting options. Our 800 fill power RDS HyperDRY™ down offers exceptional warmth without adding extra bulk. That makes these jackets easy to pack, while quilted lines are angled to create a contoured, flattering silhouette. Additionally, features like a waterproof outer shell and anti-static thread used for quilting add functionality and protect the down fill.
If your getaway plans include visits to some dressier events, a knee-length packable down coat can deliver that extra touch of glam you’re after. Longer styles adapt for casual or more elegant occasions with just a change of footwear or accessories. The longer styles offer a bit of extra coverage as well, which means warmer legs when it’s really cold. You can also pull the hood up to help you stay warm, so you save space by not having to pack an extra hat. Additionally, even the longer styles pack up into the pockets for a tidy, compressed way to carry in your luggage or a tote bag.
For a piece that transitions from mild weather to colder climates, packable down vests are a stylish and comfortable option. You can pair one of our down vests with jeans and a turtleneck for just the right amount of warmth on mild days. Or, you can wear a down vest under heavier outer layers to double up on the coziness. This type of layering is also great when it starts out cold in the mornings and warms up a bit during the day. Additionally, like our other packable jackets, these vests tuck into their own pockets so you won't have to sacrifice a lot of space.
A short sleeve down jacket lets you create a look that transitions easily to accommodate mild weather and cold. The short sleeves create an appealing effect when layered over your favorite long sleeve t-shirt or flannel. Detailing features like hidden snaps and angled quilting give the jackets a smooth, feminine shape. Add some winter accessories, like a fleece scarf and thick gloves in a contrasting color for a visual effect that stands out.
Adding men’s packable down jackets to the packing list for your getaway is a way to make sure everyone is prepared when you’re traveling and a cold snap hits. Just like the women’s styles, men’s packable coats and jackets can be tucked into a pocket for packing in a duffle bag, placing in a glove box, or carrying in a backpack. The outer shells of the jackets are waterproof, and the HyperDRY™ down keeps you warm even if it happens to get wet; plus, it dries quickly. Directional quilting adds visual appeal to the jackets, so you can pair them with jeans, dress pants, or even sweat pants for a stylish look.
Simplify the preparation for your holiday getaway by choosing items that pack neatly, like packable down coats from Lands’ End. Our packable coats, jackets, and vests are designed to be tucked away in their own pockets. Additionally, Responsible Down Standard (RDS) down, which has been procured through an ethically sourced supply chain, is used so you can feel good about your outerwear choice. The down is also processed to maintain its warming properties even if it gets wet, so if you get caught out in the elements, you can still enjoy plenty of warmth.
