Welcome to the latest edition of really love my …, a series where I feature one of the most worn pieces in my closet. As March comes to an end the weather is topsy-turvey and I have found layers are the way to go, even for a short journey. For the past five years one of my favorite layers has been this navy Ultra Light Down Jacket and in the photos below you will see a variety o the ways I have layered it including under my All Saints Leather jacket and my Michael Kors trench coat. Over the last year it has also become a popular layer on the long walks I have taken with Mark around London and the English countryside.
It has a relaxed fit which the site describes as easy movement and while some love it I ditched the popular carrying pouch the day after I got it. That does not mean it does not travel with me – it has been scrunched, folded, stuffed, and packed more ways than you can imagine but I just did not need the small bag it came in This jacket has traveled the world, take a look:

Nearly all of these photos are somewhere in my travel logs over the past decade and as you can see, this Uniqlo Puffer Jacket has been around the world and back. And even looking at these photos makes me think I really should get another one, especially given the range of colors they offer. There are nearly a dozen hues on their website but here are the five I would consider (and yes, I did include the navy in there because you can never have too much of a good thing).
What do you think of this Uniqlo puffer jacket?
