Having something warm and cozy to bundle up in during your travels is paramount for a good vacation. Seriously, you’ll thank me when the plane becomes a little too cold for your liking, the mornings and nights on your trip have a chill in the air, or when your hike somewhere in the world becomes just a bit too misty.

But, don’t just get any old warm clothing item to fill your luggage. Get something that’s not only functional but seriously cute and easy to pack. That something should be this incredibly soft fleece jacket from Columbia.

The Benton Springs Full-Zip Fleece Jacket is ideal for fall through spring (and even those cool summer nights). It’s made with super-soft, 100 percent polyester MTR filament fleece that makes it perfect for layering.

The jacket is cut with a modern classic fit, hitting just at the hip, and zipping all the way to the neck. It also comes with two zippered side pockets to keep your small items secure and easy to access. The jacket’s collar is flexible, so you can choose to pop it up or fold it down depending on how much added warmth you need.

Best of all, the jacket comes in 52 different bold colors, so there is truly something for everyone. While exact pricing varies by color, you can get the fleece starting as low as $23 — which really makes this jacket a steal. Currently, the jacket is even the number-one best seller in two Amazon categories: Women’s Fleece Jackets and Coats and Women’s Outdoor Recreation Fleece Jackets and Coats.

Amazon shoppers are loving this versatile fleece, which has racked up nearly 8,000 customer reviews.

“This is by far my favorite fleece because it is thick almost blankety and super warm, doesn't ball up in the wash, fade in color or change in texture,” one reviewer noted. “The full zip version also features zip-down pockets and a pull cord at the bottom seam to gather it in for a more tailored look. Colors are all vibrant and arrive as pictured.”

“I love my jacket. I got a small and it fits like a medium but it works out perfect because I can wear sweatshirts underneath it without it being too tight,” another happy customer said. “It's super soft and warm. Definitely recommend!”

Find your perfect color (or two or three) and stay warm all throughout the upcoming seasons, no matter where your travels take you.
