Travel this time of year can mean warmer temperatures and spring blooms galore, although it can also mean unpredictable weather (read: sudden downpours). If you're a prepared traveler who wants to avoid getting caught in the rain without compromising your outfit, a packable jacket is your perfect solution.

The Raincheck Packable Raincoat from Madewell is a lightweight, versatile piece that should definitely make its way into your travel wardrobe. Alongside a compact umbrella and subtly water-resistant shoes, it's easier than ever to make sure you're prepared for whatever spring weather brings your way.

The hooded jacket features water-resistant poly fabric that's made from recycled plastic bottles. It's ventilated, which means it will keep you comfortable, no matter the temperature. Plus, the hem has an adjustable drawstring that allows you to customize the fit. It's available in three stylish colors that will be sure to compliment your wardrobe: Warm Nutmeg, Pale Lilac, and Celestial Gold.

But the standout feature of this jacket is that it folds up into a belt bag that you can easily wear around your waist, making it perfect for travel days when you're uncertain what the forecast might bring. Whether you use the belt bag function or fold the jacket up to store it in a larger bag, its packability makes it particularly convenient for travel.
