In 2014, you'll need all the help you can get to outsmart Mother Nature. Here's our first tip of the year to stay warm in glacial temperatures: layer up with one of Uniqlo's ultra-light down vests.
Using the latest technology, the Japanese retailer decided to integrate premimum down into a thin layer of nylon to reduce the weight of its jackets, and prevent any potential "feather leakage."
With over 10 colors available (including some very cool trompe l'oeil prints), all you need to do is pick your favorite, wear it under your winter coat, and enjoy its blissful comfort while you wait for Spring.
