This six-in-one reversible jacket is hugely versatile and even packs down small for easy transportation.


Lightweight, windproof, all-weather jackets that are packable and washable are hard to come by, and that may explain the level of interest in the Smol, which smashed its funding target on Kickstarter.


There are two main components, a jacket and a vest that pack down together, and come in reversible fabric. Zip the two pieces together to make a warm winter jacket, or remove the vest for a lightweight shell.


It’s windproof and water-resistant, with breathable fabrics and deep pockets. Eco-friendly materials are machine washable, and you’ll be able to wear the Smol year-round. Another plus is the use of animal-friendly materials; you won’t find any goose down here. Instead the filling is made from recycled materials that perform great without cruelty.


Mix and match the vest and jacket in different colors and you will be able to wear the Smol in six different ways. It looks like a well-built piece of kit, and, aside from a small logo on the chest, there is no visible branding.


The jacket will retail for $119 and ship in May 2020.
