HI-TECH HEAT

UNIQLO’S HEAT­TECH MAKES LIGHT WORK OF THE IDEA THAT THER­MAL CLOTH­ING NEEDS TO BE HEAVY

Men's Health (UK) - - Mh Promotion -

Look at the im­pen­e­tra­ble coat of the High­land ram or the thick fur of the po­lar bear and the les­son seems self-ev­i­dent: to stay warm, you need to go big, or go home. But the de­sign­ers at Uniqlo begged to dif­fer – af­ter all, who says mod­ern ther­mal cloth­ing has to weigh you down? In­stead, they de­cided to cre­ate some­thing that was just as warm but far lighter. Their HEAT­TECH range is made from a rev­o­lu­tion­ary fab­ric that re­tains body heat, thanks to its abil­ity to store it in air pock­ets built into its fi­bres. By trap­ping air like a stan­dard ther­mal fab­ric, only much more ef­fi­ciently, HEAT­TECH pro­vides warmth with­out the weight and al­lows Uniqlo to pro­duce gar­ments just 0.55mm thick. If there’s a bet­ter fab­ric for lay­er­ing, we’d like to see it! There are three lev­els of warmth to choose from – HEAT­TECH, HEAT­TECH EX­TRA WARM and HEAT­TECH UL­TRA WARM – so you can ad­just your level of in­su­la­tion depend­ing on whether you’re go­ing “full Arc­tic” or just head­ing to the gym be­fore the sun’s come up.
