    Technically, you can pack any jacket — the trick is, will it unpack without being a crinkled mess, and will it take up all the space in the luggage? Especially on occasions where you need to pack light, a good crushable jacket is a travel must-have, especially if it’s a versatile outer layer. Packable jackets are often targeted to hikers and backpackers, where light weight is also of importance, so the majority are either warm, quilted outer layers or rainproof shell jackets. Many can roll up into their own hood or pocket or come with an included storage bag to make packing a breeze.
