Finding the best travel hoodie for your next trip is important. They’re an ideal addition to your wardrobe because you can layer them, put them on if you’re cold, and shrug them off if you’re not. But finding the best one might be a bit of a challenge.
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
Shop Sizes XXS-3X: J. Crew
J. Crew Cotton Travel Sweatshirt
The J.Crew Cotton hoodie is made of cotton fabric 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! Available in 3 colors.
Alternatively, you can also get it in a pull-over style. Alex always packs her J Crew Tippi sweater as her in-flight layer!

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, as it’s available in sizes XS-XL and S-3X. 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 – 3X 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 Zella Cara hoodie is a top pick best travel sweatshirt for one TFG reader! With lovely colors, comfy feel, and a dip hem, we can see why!
