Hi! I'm travelling for a year with a 65L backpack and i have my fleece and my goretex waterproof coat. We will be going out to clubs and pubs in New York and London etc in the middle of winter and are wondering:
Whats the best way of going about coats to wear???
Should we buy a cheap one and just throw it out, can we borrow a coat for a few days or should we wear our goretex and fleece and check it in once we are inside the place?? we want to look nice of course
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hi Julie! OK, firstly, I don't know about New York, but London certianly isn't as wet as you may have heard...it rains a fair bit in winter, sure, but it's no monsoon! No one really worries about it - just bring a decent coat and you can either hold onto it in the bar or pub or put it into the cloakroom if there is one. Seriously - not a major issue at all. Enjoy!
yeah i know, just that we have our outdoorsy looking coats and stuff and have our nice going out tops, we want to look pretty and nice!
thanks for the help!
If you aren't going to be walking for more than a few minutes to the pub and can handle being a bit cold or if you are getting a taxi then you'll probably be alright with a black zip up cardi or something.
You can buy an umbrella while you are there and then throw it away when you carry on with your travels.
Or if you are really cold then you could just buy a jacket from a cheap fashion shop then throw it when you're done.
Hope this helps, enjoy your travels,
A cheap fashion shop like New Look, or Matalan...
