I’m planning a trip to Chicago in late fall, and am wondering if there’s a decently priced down jacket that can be compressed into a carryon without taking up too much space.
I’m traveling from Arizona and don’t really want to wear the thing on the plane if possible. And I don’t need a coat that would protect me in the Arctic, just a medium weight jacket that will provide some insulation from the notoriously fickle weather in Chicago. I’ve seen a few on Amazon, but am looking for some reviews from the experienced “traveling light” folks here.
I’ve had some success using compression bags to save space with heavy coats, but they still take up a lot of room. And as this is going to be a pretty short trip, I’d prefer not to check a bag because of one heavy item.
