I wanted to share what I packed for Portland in case anyone was wondering or packing for a similar trip!

1. Hunter Rain Boots

I cannot stress how much I love my Hunter rain boots. I would buy them again in a heartbeat. I wore them almost every day and they are a must-have item. I got the “tour” version that fold up easily for packing.

2. Waterproof Rain Coat

I bought the Columbia rain coat specifically for the trip and it withstood light showers as well as huge waterfalls.

3. Patagonia Pullover

Patagonia’s Re-Tool Snap Pullover is ridiculously warm. I can’t put it on while still in the house or I start sweating so it’s definitely worth the price.

4. Patagonia Jacket

The Better Sweater Jacket also by Patagonia is a great layering piece. It’s the perfect jacket for layering and every day wear.

5. Long and Short Sleeve Layers

I get most of my long and short sleeve layers from Old Navy, Gap, and Target.


I hope this helps for anyone planning a trip somewhere rainy. Never let it stop you from having an incredible adventure. Portland was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been and to enjoy it comfortably you can use the items I suggested to stay warm and dry!
