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.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
