So I'm in CHI for the winter. How do people travel with a carry-on, suit jacket and a winter jacket altogether?

Wear the jacket and suit jacket. Carry the extra jacket in the carry on. Google how to fold suit jacket for more

Regional jets are your best friend in a situation where you have to wear an overcoat! Your carry-on will be taken planeside no matter what. You can put your briefcase and overcoat in the upper compartment in a regional jet no problem.

I sweat easily too, so I try to avoid an overcoat unless absolutely necessary. I always bring hat, gloves, and scarf in winter. Those go a long way towards warmth. You can also layer a vest or cardigan for more warmth. Wear the layer with or w/o your suit jacket, depending on the variety of temps in the cab/airport/plane/etc. So learn how to pack that suit jacket/blazer in the suitcase.

Also those puffy nylon jackets that are so popular now... I typically bring one, but only because they pack down to nearly nothing. If I truly get stuck outside for any length of time, I can unpack the puff and use it below freezing. But it should go UNDER your suit jacket for best warmth. Sometimes I can go weeks without unpacking it, or it also can serve as a makeshift hoodie in drafty hotel rooms.

Thks I'll look it up. Any way to not have to wear both jackets tho since I sweat easily 😓

Take the overcoat off when you’re on the plane.

I'll try haha since I'm flying regionals and the plane is most likely E145 United. Thank you

Appreciate the response WM1. Will do it next week
