I’m an avid hiker and camper living in upstate New York — I know a thing or two about the great (but cold) outdoors. I need a winter jacket that keeps me warm on windy days out and about while being light enough to take on the trail. But the warmest winter jackets are bulky and don’t travel well. Those that did were never warm enough. Is there a jacket out there that could do both?

Thanks to Jack Wolfskin, the answer is yes. The brand, known as the “North Face of Europe,” has a Pack & Go collection that’s perfect for winter travelers. It’s meant to layer: made with 700 fill RDS certified duck down, Jack Wolfskin is way higher quality than other, more expensive winterwear I’ve tried. Plus, the Pack & Go jacket stashes away so well that I can take it anywhere – no matter where the road might take me.

The Pack & Go collection has a layer for any condition and includes a down jacket, shell, and vest, among other fantastic layering options like sweatshirts and hardshell jackets. This three piece system is  meant to layer so I can mix and match as the weather calls for it. Plus, all the pieces are waterproof, making it the perfect trail companion.

Pack & Go is a family affair, too: My wife wears her Jack Wolfskin whenever we hit the trail. Annie and I agree that whether we’re enjoying the Adirondacks in March or on Main Street in December, we’re as comfy as we are warm. And since Annie is an environmental scientist, she especially loves that Jack Wolfskin is super sustainable. The 700 fill duck down comes only from ducks and geese treated ethically, and the shell and coat (except for the zipper) are made from fully recycled materials.

Annie is also super fashion-forward, so she wouldn’t let us wear Jack Wolfskin if it didn’t look the part. Granted, we’re about functionality over fashion, but knowing just how good these jackets look makes it even easier to transition from backpacking to brunch. All our friends complimented us the first time they saw our Jack Wolfskin getups, and now some of them are part of “The Pack” too!

If you too want to join The Pack for first access to exclusive Jack Wolfskin deals and offers, visit Jack Wolfskin’s website for 20% off using code BMG20. Fashionable, functional jackets for everyday wear — and whatever calls beyond — are just clicks away, and so too is your warmest winter yet.
