Fed up with buying multiple layers of clothing for different trips? Heading off backpacking and need to travel light? This five-in-one jacket could be the perfect solution.

The outer layer is breathable, light and waterproof, with zipin layers to adapt the jacket for different situations. Simply add extra layers the colder it gets and pack them down when you don’t need them.

Each layer is made from high-performance materials that promise to keep you warm and dry, whatever the conditions. For active pursuits you’ll be pleased to hear it’s breathable, too, so you won’t start to overheat and sweat out.

So far so good, but then you find out the price. The whole package will cost $1,300 when it is released after a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Even for a high-tech piece of kit, that is a huge amount of money — out of reach for most hobbyist mountaineers, let alone young backpackers who wanted a convenient jacket.

It’s hard to imagine why the jacket costs so much and whether it will be worth it is anyone’s guess. However, delivery is scheduled for March 2019, so we will soon be able to see what all of the hype is about.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
