The No-borders Jacket
“Borders… I hear they exist in the minds of some people.”
If you’re going to see some things, do some things, you need some things.
A good jacket is one of these things. Something lightweight but warm enough. A storm flap with metal snaps that go all the way up to your chin is always smart.
Contrary to what you’ve been told, you don’t need ten thousand pockets, just enough for your smartphone, sunglasses, knife, papers, getaway cash, etc. The pockets need to be strategically placed for accessibility. A couple should have zippers, the others snaps.
It should roll up to a tenth of its size for storage and even be able to be used as a neck pillow for the plane ride to Rapa Nui or the bus ride out of Tegucigalpa.
