“I did the method where you fold one shoulder over the other, turning the jacket inside out, and leaving the sleeves to hang naturally inside (don’t stuff one into the other). Then either fold it in half or in thirds. I didn’t put it in plastic, as the instructions I read said the plastic would make it move around, which is what causes the wrinkles. You’re supposed to have it packed fairly snug against other items, and the “inside out” part of the jacket serves as the barrier that I believe most people are looking for with the plastic covers. The jacket didn’t even need to hang in the steamy bathroom before wearing. You can find a video of this method on YouTube. Worked like a charm!”
Chris and family went on a two week trip to Japan; here’s the trip in video. Gear laid out, packing lists, getting on the plane, sleeping on the plane, eating lots of amazing food…..
When he’s not going on awesome trips to Japan or packing for overnight work trips, Chris is the writer and producer at SHEP, the people who worked with us on our Tri-Star and Synapse videos.
