Best Travel Clothing is a new Carry Awards category, but it makes sense to include it. After all, the more versatile a piece of travel clothing is, the less you need to pack. And keeping carry weight down is one of the key ways to get the most out of ‘one bag’ traveling. Hauling less means greater freedom to go further and experience more.

Our category finalists below all offer travel-friendly features such as water and stain resistance, moisture-wicking capabilities, minimal washing requirements, or adaptable aesthetics that work well across formal and informal environments alike. However, only one can be crowned the ultimate category winner. Who will you choose?

Patagonia Micro Puff® Hoody

You don’t need to pack a bulky jacket to stay warm on your travels. Patagonia’s Micro Puff® Hoody offers a great warmth-to-weight ratio thanks to its PlumaFill insulation. The synthetic insulation still provides warmth when wet, but offers the packability of down. Complementing the insulation is an ultralight nylon ripstop Pertex Quantum® shell, which is both water-resistant and windproof. An elasticized hem and cuffs help keep heat in, and the hoody’s left pocket also serves as a stuff sack for compact storage in your luggage.
