Do you have one of these reversible beauties made by Mycra Pac? One belongs in every suitcase. They come in great shades, all reverse to black. The collar is pleated and unfolds to a hood. The design is loose but flattering, lots of layers fit underneath. They come in several lengths. Each one comes with a large pouch to pack it in that doubles as a practical crossbody bag.

I have this knee length one in sapphire/black, which is actually a much richer shade, more like midnight blue. My friend has a stylish black one with large abstract butterflies on it. We bought my mother a long metallic bronze one several years ago that she likes to travel with. Nordstrom carries Mycra Pac coats, the stores have a much larger selection than the website.
