With temperatures cooling, now is the perfect time to start planning your winter getaways. UNIQLO, a Japanese clothing manufacturer offers Heattech clothing, a comfortable and easily packable solution to keep you toasty all winter long.
UNIQLO’s Heattech line comes in men’s, women’s and children’s styles and includes more than one hundred products. The leggings, tights and socks keep lower extremities warm while slips, tank tops, turtlenecks and t-shirts provide a cozy layer on top. The line boasts anti-odor, anti-static and anti-deformation characteristics; they stand up to repeated washings and do not wrinkle easily.
Similar to the store’s other products, Heattech is made from soft, comfortable fabric and comes in a variety of colors and cuts. The fabric gets its luxuriously smooth texture from the addition of camellia oil, a skin-safe oil often used in cosmetics.
Although Heattech does not retain warmth as well as sports brand clothing, like Under Armor, it is stylish enough to wear on and off the ski slopes. The clothing is heat-retentive — it traps body heat to keep you warm — and it takes a few minutes to warm up to each new piece of clothing.
UNIQLO delivers a cozy array of warm clothing and accessories for a reasonable price. Shirts and leg warmers start at $12.90, while leggings or tights are $14.90. At these prices, it makes sense to stock up and stay toasty all winter.
Pair Heattech with UNIQLO’s Ultra Light Down collection for chilly climates. This combination of sleek, lightweight outerwear and soft Heattech layers will keep you comfortably warm on your next winter excursion without filling your suitcase.

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
