My Favorite Travel Blazer
Eddie Bauer’s Men’s Voyager 2.0 Travel Blazer is ultra-durable and machine washable. Construction is 94% nylon/6% spandex shell; 100% polyester lining.
With 50% off, the regular price of $149.99 drops to $75.
This is a very casual blazer that you can dress up in a pinch. I carry it on a trip when I may need to look less scruffy and don’t want to take a traditional blazer or suit.
This is a good stand-in for casual business and social occasions, not for a job interview or formal occasions. I find it especially useful in hot climates that I will sweat through a wool blazer. At this price it feels ok to put the jacket through the worst. If you totally crush it in packing it wrinkles a bit that comes out from a hot shower steam or wear for a while.
Since the jacket is unstructured (no shoulder pads), it folds down to take about as much space and weight as a windbreaker.
I’ve had the navy version for two years and it has held up well. I just put in an order for dark slate. Sizing is true to my suit size.
The lighter colors looks more casual than the dark because detailing like the front zipper pocket is more visible. Khaki is on clearance for $99.99 that with 50% off drops to $50.
There is also now the Men’s Departure Tropical-Weight Package Blazer, priced the same at $149.99 and currently only in black and navy. From the photos I like that it does not have the front zipper pocket so I’ve put in an order for the navy to test it. Construction is 86% polyester/14% spandex shell; 100% polyester lining.
