Winter layering pieces for women who travel

Title Nine Super Power sweater:

What’s your super power? This sweater’s super power is velvety-softness that’s somehow still tough as nails. The Super Power sweater is a Title Nine original that is stylish and fun while still practical and ready to put in some work. It’s made of 60% extra fine Merino wool and 40% polyester, and the fit is generous while not being boxy. You get two zippered front pockets and thumbholes, and because of the roomy fit and full zippered front, this sweater feels more like a light jacket. I easily layer a tee or a long-sleeved base layer shirt on underneath. The hood is oversized…perfect for tucking over a beanie or a ball cap.

The Super Power Sweater comes in three colors–black, maple (red), and deep sea (navy), all of which have fun dot patterns on the sleeves. It goes great with jeans, leggings, and skirts. Pick up your own for $139 in women’s XS-XL. There’s a 1/4 zip option if you prefer not to have a full zip.

Sierra Designs Tuolumne vest:

Lightweight, packable, and perfect for keeping your core nice and cozy, the Tuolumne Vest is my favorite layering jacket for the fall and winter travel season. It’s made of Primaloft® Silver to provide warmth, with stretch grid fleece side panels for mobility and ventilation. You can use either of the two handwarmer pockets as a stuff sack for when it comes time to pack it down. You get a bungee cinch at the waist and two zippered hand pockets and an inside kangaroo pocket.

It comes in classic black, olive green, or an almost Caribbean blue, in sizes XS to XL. There’s a men’s version as well. Pick up the Tuolumne vest for $119 at Sierra Designs or many additional brick and mortar and online retailers, such as MooseJaw and Amazon.
