How to Stuff a Jacket in a Self-Stowing Pocket


Some jackets come with a self-stowing pocket.
These means the jacket is designed to pack up inside one of the pockets which makes it
more compact for storage inside a pack or car when it’s not in use. On this jacket
it’s the inside pocket. And you can tell this because when we unzip it and flip it
inside out here, you can see the double zipper tab, which means once it has been stowed in
the pocket you’ll have a zipper to close it up with and close it in. So you’re going
to unzip the pocket and start turning the jacket into it, inside out.

  1. Thank you!! I was trying to figure out how to pack the new rain jacket that packs in one of its pockets. Yours was the only one that showed up 🙂

  2. Great video. I could not figure out how to pack my new coat. It said it was packable but no instructions and it drove me crazy. The two double zippers way the go a way to the pocket. Thanks again.

  3. Thanks for the video! My down jacket didn't come with instructions and I'd always try and stuff it into the pocket, but could never zip it up afterward. Once someone shows you, it's so damn obvious! Thanks again.

  4. Is there a technique where you fold it a particular way rather than just stuffing it inside like that? Don't want it to be so creased

  5. Hah. Just got my Marmot Precip and searched for videos on how to do this. Thought it was a jacket dependent process, but after 30 minutes of trying to do it myself and looking at videos were nobody showed the actual process I found this helpful video. Im not a backpacker just wanted a rain jacket so this is completely new to me. Thanks a lot.

  6. I'm having a lot of down feather leakage with an LL Bean 850 fill coat and a Feathered Friends 20-deg bag. Is this just par for the course or is there some reasonable way to avoid the nuisance of airborne down in the tent and clothing sort of littered with it?

  7. after watching this for my new Patagonia jacket, I started looking through my other things to see what else has self stuffing pockets and found my rain coat and day pack do too! so cool. thanks!

  8. The video that I’ve been looking for. Showed me exactly what I needed to know in under 60 seconds! 🙏 🙏🙏

  9. Thanks a ton dear. Bought decathlon down jacket and learned from you how to pack it down into pocket. Thanks a ton 😊😊😊😍😍
