Tasc Performance advertises the “extreme comfort” of its clothing, and that description is apt: The fabric, a unique fiber made from bamboo, is incredibly soft, with a nice stretch that makes for a flattering fit and for a nice give when you’re exercising.


The fabric is extremely lightweight and sports UPF of 50, said to protect you from almost 100 percent of the sun’s rays. It’s also moisture-wicking, anti-odor and breathable, all impressive considering this isn’t wool or something engineered in a lab.



Tasc Performance creates garments for men and women, including plus sizes. The women’s Rib It Jacket is a ¼-zip garment as thin as a shirt, but it works well in keeping you warm — yet breathing well — during heavy exercise. It’s also super soft, like the other Tasc products, so if you’re sitting on a plane for a long flight, you’ll be comfortable.


The jacket features thumb loops, so the sleeves come down to cover the bulk of your palm, making it great for running or playing a sport in chilly weather. What’s more, the garment features stylish flourishes like ruching on the sides and ribbing at the cuffs.

Ways to Sweat Less While Traveling

Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.
