The life of a traveller is often devoid of plush and luxurious facilities; which is why it is important to live a minimalist life. Utility must take over what was aesthetically enamouring. However, the existence of some items amalgamate the two needs to make it a perfect combination of comfort and practicality. While travel jackets are required for comfort and warmth, they can be rather bulky and hard to store. However, these -- multi-use jackets convert the jacket into useful items for those who are on the go. Check out our list to pick a jacket for your need.
Turn your jacket into a handy bag
What could be better than an extra storage facility when you are constantly on the run? These two jackets can be inverted to make two-strapped bags when not needed for protection against frosty or windy weather.
For those who refuse to compromise on style can opt for the higher end Morgan Rae Moto Jacket by Covert NYC. A women’s faux leather jacket, this outerwear folds back into a little bag and also can be two-strapped or single-strapped with its slim sleeves.
