Luckily, we asked TFG readers to share their top picks for hoodies to pack along on their trips. And they have some awesome choices that you need to see!
Best Travel Hoodies
J. Crew Everyday Cashmere Hoodie in Heather Grey | Sizes XXS-3X
Editor’s Pick: Everyday Cashmere Zip-front Travel Sweatshirt
The J.Crew Everyday Hoodie is made of an ultra-warm cashmere that’s soft and luxe. You can wear this while you’re traveling, at home, and it’s especially great for cooler destinations. If you need a little extra warmth, tuck it under a jacket or a coat (editor-in-chief Alex says it looks great under a leather moto jacket). Plus it’s size-inclusive (up to a 3X), so all shapes and sizes can enjoy it! Grab it in classic shades of black, navy and grey for a wardrobe staple.
Alternatively, you can also get it in a pull-over style. Alex always packs her J Crew Tippi Sweater as her in-flight layer!

Columbia Travel Hoodie Women’s Plus Size
If you’re looking for a cozy pull-over hoodie that has plus sizes for your next trip, then look no further than the Columbia Bryce Canyon sweater. Wearers share that it is super cute, runs true-to-size, has soft material and keeps you warm. With a variety of shades to choose from, and a slightly longer back to cover you as you bend and stretch, this hoodie is a travel MUST!

Columbia Women’s Benton Springs II Long Hoodie
With over 1,000 five-star reviews, this is definitely the ultimate travel hoodie. Its cozy fleece is made of 100% polyester and gives a flattering look, but still has enough room for you to wear something underneath. With two color options and sizes from XS – XL this is an option for all figures.
The long line cut of this hoodie skims over the hips and won’t ride up. And the deep neck hood is perfect for snuggling into against the cold. If you want something to keep you warm and fashionable, it’s worth taking a look at.

The North Face Crescent Hooded Pullover
The Crescent Hooded Pullover is another ideal choice by The North Face. While it is a previous season style, it has a sleek design – especially for a fleece hoodie. It features fashionable plaid prints, perfect for your fall trip. Plus, you can keep your hands warm in the secure-zip hand pockets.

Icebreaker Merino Travel Hoodie
Made of Merino wool (one of our favorite travel fabrics), the Icebreaker Quantum is the ideal summer hoodie choice due to its ventilated and gusseted areas giving you breathable wear. One TFG reader shared that this choice is “pretty thin but still provides sufficient warmth.”
It has zippered pockets so your precious essentials won’t fall out during a plane journey. But we love that it has thumb holes at the end of the sleeves, and how the sleeves fold at the end to create a mitten! Genius if you’re caught in cold weather!
It’s also available in black.

The North Face Shelbe Raschel Travel Hoodie Jacket
We just love our North Face hoodies, and the Shelbe Raschel is another awesome choice for your next trip—especially if you’re going to be spending some time in the great outdoors. It is fleece on the inside and made of wind and water-resistant fabric on the outside. The hardest pick will be which of the many shades to choose from, but we adore the deep garnet red!

The North Face Women’s Crescent Wrap
The North Face Crescent Wrap is a super cute hoodie that’s perfect for your next trip. With a stylish and unique wrap design that is guaranteed to bring in the compliments.

Lululemon Nulu Travel Hooded Jacket
Our fearless TFG editor says that she used this Lululemon Nulu jacket as her travel hoodie and workout sweater nonstop for over a decade. She shared, “It was the only hoodie I owned and when it was finally donated, it was still in excellent shape. It’s an awesome investment. No need to own more than one.”
Its buttery-soft Nulu fabric is sweat-wicking and lightweight, adding a ‘barely-there’ comfort but keeping you warm and stylish at the same time. Available in four color options, this is a perfect capsule piece to add to any wardrobe.

The North Face Women’s TKA Glacier Full Zip Hoodie
There is nothing warmer than a North Face fleece hoodie, and the TKA Glacier is no exception. This one is especially great because it has space to keep your hands warm, and you can take off the hood if you want.
Available in more colors than we can dream of, the fleece is 100% post-consumer recycled, so it’s environmentally friendly too! To pack this bad boy, use a packing cube to compress the bulk!

SCOTTeVEST Chloe Glow in Midnight | XS-XL and M1-M4
SCOTTeVEST Chloe Glow – Plus Sizes
The SCOTTeVEST Chloe Glow is the ultimate pickpocket-proof hoodie. It has a massive number of pockets (18 to be exact), but it definitely doesn’t look like anti-theft clothing. It’s versatile, stylish and perfect for travel. And, if you want a little extra protection, pair it with a bra stash.
Available in a full range of sizes. It comes in four colors and has features we didn’t know we needed in a hoodie, such as an eyeglass cleaning chamois, detachable key chain, and water bottle holder.

Pacsafe Women’s Transit Hoodie

Of the 16 fabulous features, we love that it has an inflatable, detachable neck pillow and built-in eye mask. Snoozing on a long haul flight just got way more comfortable! It doesn’t necessarily have the best ratings, but we’re assured that it has a very cute, slim fit.

They say “I bought this as a last minute purchase for my trip this past August to Germany, Austria, Switzerland. It turned out to be the best purchase! I wore it almost daily, it was great alone or for layering. I was hesitant to spend this much money on a lightweight jacket but it proved to be a great purchase and I’m so glad I bought it!” She does warn that it does run a tad big, so check the size chart before you buy. You can get it in regular, tall, and petite.

If you don’t plan on wearing your sweatshirt on the plane, one way to organize it and all your travel wardrobe are by using packing cubes. The Compass Rose packing cubes have a numbering and color system so it’s easy to identify where everything is! The video below demonstrates this.
