I think someone up there controlling the weather just got the heating bill and switched the sun off. Brrrr!

I have to say this makes standing out there on a freezing cold Saturday morning watching your little beloveds play football, absolutely no fun whatsoever. So to "ease" the pain and the cold, I popped on my Uniqlo extra warm heat tech yesterday. I think they're brilliant and I got mine last year partly out of curiosity as I wanted to see what the difference was. This is the vest I now make a beeline for when there's a distinct chill factor in the air - icicles off the end of your nose are a good barometer. You will also notice the difference immediately when you get the extra warm version compared to the regular one as apart from being a fraction thicker, the inside of them is a slightly fleecy/almost brushed kind of texture which makes them very soft and cosy.
So ..... when it's a south easterly wind with light moderate showers, I would recommend regular heat tech.
And when it's a north easterly wind with heavy rain persisting, I would recommend extra warm heat tech. And throw in a Ultra Light Down jacket whilst you're there ;o)
Last Note :
- The regular heat tech vests appear to be on offer at the moment and are down from £12.90 to £9.90.
