Pick of the Day: CompressLite Packaway Jacket

A jacket that will keep you warm when you need it, and pack away into it’s own bag when you don’t.

What Is It: A compressible jacket that packs away into a small bag.

Why It’s Smart:

• Lightweight, but still very warm

• Synthetic insulation is as warm as down (and warmer than down when wet)

• Water-resistant

• Windproof

• Quick-drying

• Elasticated hood can be secured around your face

• Adjustable hem

Where to Buy: Available on Craghopper’s website for men and women
