Winter trip packing list

Planning a small winter break? Wondering what to pack for bitterly cold temperatures?

I’m going to give you an overview of what was in my luggage for my blustery bank holiday weekend in Poland.

Everyone told me I would freeze so I stacked up on warm vests and tights to wear under everything and I even bought a new pair of over-the-knee boots. I don’t play with winter! Anyone who knows me can vouch that I’m temperature sensitive.


What was in my luggage:

  • 3 vests
  • 1 long sleeve top
  • 1 woolly cardigan
  • 2 polar neck long jumpers and 1 oversized crew neck jumper
  • 1 jumper dress
  • 2 leggings
  • 3 pairs of tights
  • Underwear – enough for more days than I’m stay
  • Winter accessories – hat, scarf and gloves
  • Makeup and toiletries – all in bottles under 100ml 


I advise anyone going on a winter excursion to layer up to the max. If you handle the cold like me, make sure you get a good parker with 80/20 down.

What’s the first item you pack for a winter trip?

  1. Thermal socks! I remember walking around krakow in Feb and almost freezing my toes off. Some solid socks would’ve helped me carry on walking around the city to see more. Although nipping inside for a hot drink every now and then didn’t hurt!
