    Comments about Nepalese Travel Jacket:

    I thought the quilting would be more apparent. I bought a dark color and that may account for it being less apparent. I thought the jacket would have an all over lining of the batting.

        Not a bad product, but beware the color is nowhere near as deep and attractive as in the photo.

        Considering returning it, because of color not being as advertised and also awkward fit (very bulky).

        Given that I paid $18 just to ship it, this was not a good buy.

        Comments about Nepalese Travel Jacket:

        The sizing needs to be reviewed. The shoulders in my jacket were way too broad compared to the rest of the garments. The sleeves can be rolled up so the jacket accommodates any sleeve length. The material is a very thin cotton .

                This is a very nice casual, lightweight, all-cotton jacket. Catalog description didn't say it was lined, so I was glad to see that it is. Fabric seemed a bit stiff at first, but after washing (dried on hanger) it relaxed. Will be perfect for my trip to Florence, Italy in April. Only thing I would change is the zipper inside the pockets -- scratchy on my hands. I'd prefer a hidden pocket on the inside of the jacket.

                    Artisans working in Kathmandu, Nepal, use a traditional quilting technique called "trapunto" to add the detailing at the shoulders and yoke of this jacket. In trapunto, decorative patterns are sewn with lightweight batting to add texture without bulk. The artisans who make this jacket create the pattern freehand as they guide the garment through a treadle-operated sewing machine. Light enough to wear as a shirt or a jacket, it multiplies your travel wardrobe and helps you pack light. Hip length, with side welt pockets, turn-back cuffs, flattering princess seams, and an adjustable tie back.

                    Keep all of your travel essentials organized and close at hand with this convertible travel jacket. With its 15 pockets to accommodate your passport, traveler's checks, camera, film, maps, pens, GPS, MP3 player, and even a water bottle, you may be able to leave a carry-on bag at home. Perfect for packing light even in changeable climates: The quick-drying cotton/nylon blend shrugs off wet weather. When the sun heats you up, zip off the sleeves and stash them in the pockets to convert the jacket into a vest. Moisture-wicking mesh lining keeps you cool and comfortable. Reinforced stitching stands up to years of adventures off the beaten path.

                    Being prepared for travel in changeable climates doesn’t have to mean bringing twice the gear. Our water-resistant, blazer-style jacket is perfect from Seattle to São Paulo. Its ability to shrug off wet weather is due to the tight weave of the fabric, not a surface waterproofing treatment, so it remains effective even after years of wear. Four exterior patch pockets, two hand pockets, interior zip pocket, and interior MP3 pocket with an earphone pass-through slot help you keep a ton of travel essentials within reach. Button cuffs customize the fit.

                    Like its neighbors in China and Japan, Korea has a remarkable garden culture, with peaceful natural spaces decorating the grounds of temples, palaces, and office parks alike. Our lightweight travel jacket is inspired by the meditative paths and blossoming plum trees found in these serene gardens. A border of hanbok-inspired fabric—Korea’s traditional formal wear—decorates the yoke and cuffs. Made by a Korean-American family-run business in Los Angeles, home to the largest Korean diaspora in the U.S.

                    The quilting method called "trapunto" that accents this lightweight jacket is found in the traditional garments worn by the Gurung tribe in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley. In trapunto, originally an Italian technique, the design is sewn into two layers of fabric, and then raised shapes are created by inserting stuffing through slits or spaces in the weave of the backing fabric. It was popular in the U.S. through the Civil War, but few designers today take the time to work the technique by hand.

Mist and rain are no match for the weatherproof exterior, and the zip-out, poly-filled wool lining adds warmth only when you need it. Brimming with storage space: Two exterior welt pockets each have an internal zippered security pocket. You'll find inside another zippered security pocket, a cell phone pocket, and an easy-access slit pocket. Zip front with elastic waist and cuffs to keep the chill out. Imported.

                    Inspired by the rugged work clothes worn by ranchers and opal miners in the Australian outback, this cotton canvas jacket will stand up to even the most adventurous travel. The double-weave cotton resists snags, and has a broken-in softness from day one. Six pockets allow plenty of room to securely carry all you need in town or on the trail. The elasticized waistband and wrists keep the cold out, and the soft poly lining wicks away moisture. Leather collar.
