Dressing Up for Winter
If you are travelling in countries during their winter, have a proper knowledge on winter wear selection in order to dress warmly enough to stay comfortable while outdoors.
Wind-resistant jacket is a MUST
Knowing the weather forecast of a winter country before leaving is important, since the winter apparels needed for different destinations like Tokyo, Beijing, Hokkaido or Harbin vary. Therefore, it is recommended to always carry a wind-resistant down jacket as it can be used individually as a wind-resistant jacket, and suitable for different seasons. Down jackets are trendy and pretty light-weight nowadays; a good quality down jacket that can be flattened to fit into a luggage sure beats carrying bulky and heavy coats all around.
To keep warm, it is recommended to put on three layers of clothing as basic protection. Firstly, put on sweat-absorbing, highly breathable innerwear, and follow with a sweater to retain body heat. Lastly, a wind-resistant outwear is necessary to keep warm in snowing climates. This gives one the flexibility to add or remove layers, depending on the weather and activity involved.
