PACK-AWAY JACKETS

By Sarah Kershaw, 21 August 2017

Ideal for festivals, weekenders, city breaks and generally just hanging out al fresco, pack-away jackets are an essential bit of survival kit for any man. However, in the past they’ve often been a bit, well, naff. But no longer, friend – with these steezy designs from Herschel Supply Co, your crumpled old cagoule has serious competition.

Lightweight enough to roll up and stash in your backpack, they’ll take up next to no space when you don’t need them, but when the rains come, they’ll be your best mate. These patterned takes on the jacket add a simple, statement touch to your steez. Opt for Herschel's classic camo base for a strong, on-trend look or, if you're a more adventurous dresser, choose its navy, illustrated cover-up – exclusive to ASOS.

Wear them with, well, whatever you've got on – that's the beauty of a pack-away. It'll transform your outfit when it's on (while keeping you dry, obvs…) but stows away so you avoid any potential clothing clashes when it's warm and dry. The brand's camel colourway won't let down the side when it comes to neatness, but its overhead camo option – with contrasting front pocket and hood – is best saved for the festival crowd. Let. It. Rain.
