2. Layer Your Outerwear

If the weather you will encounter might be cold during any part of your trip, then be sure to pack pieces you can layer and remove as it warms up. For a recent trip to Oregon I packed a vest, an insulated sports jacket, a trench coat, and a scarf.

I also brought several tank top undershirts because I knew they would help keep me warm, and that I could remove them if the weather became warm. I found that layering one of my jackets with my vest and scarf kept me warm during those really cold mornings and brisk evenings. In the afternoon, however, I only wore my vest.
