WINTER OUTFIT FOR REALLY COLD WEATHER

Share


So, if you've been seeing my Instagram, last month I went to Hokkaido in Japan, and of course, it's during cold winter. The weather reach -14'C, the coldest I've ever been (before that, the coldest I've experience is -7'C and it feels like icy hell). But on my Hokkaido trip, -14'C feels just okay, cold but I'm doing fine.

But on my Hokkaido trip, -14'C feels just okay, cold but I'm doing fine.


Bagi saya dan teman-teman yang terbiasa dengan suhu negara tropis, perjalanan saat musim dingin bisa jadi siksaan karena tidak terbiasa dengan suhu dingin yang ekstrim. Namun winter trip tetap bisa nyaman, dengan satu syarat: persiapan yang matang, terutama dalam hal outfit.


For me and my friends who are used to the temperature of the tropical country, traveling in winter could be torture because it is not accustomed to extreme cold temperatures. But winter trip can still be comfortable, with one condition: good preparation, especially in terms of outfit.

Jadi apa saja yang harus diperhatikan saat memilih outfit untuk suhu musim dingin yang ekstrim? ini dia:

So what should be considered when choosing the outfit for extreme winter temperatures? This is it:

LAYER

I'm wearing warm inner and this red warm sweater, took of the jacket for a while because I was sweating even though it was -5'C :))
Jangan berharap satu lapis baju akan langsung membuat kita hangat dan nyaman sepanjang hari. Saat musim dingin, meskiput cukup merepotkan, kita perlu mengaplikasikan layer dalam memilih outfit. Gunakan baju dalaman (inner) yang hangat, seperti heattech Uniqlo, atau long john merk-merk lain (ada banyak di berbagai brand outfit). Setelah inner hangat (semacam long john), baru kita bisa menggunakan luaran lagi yang cukup hangat, dan kemudian jaket/ coat musim dingin. Gunakan sistem layer juga pada kaki, long john celana dan inner heat celana juga banyak dijual di berbagai gerai pakaian.


Do not expect a single layer of clothing will immediately make us warm and comfortable throughout the day. In winter, although it is quite troublesome, we need to apply layering in choosing the outfit. Use innerwear that are warm, such as Uniqlo heattech, or other brands' long john (there are many in various outfit brands). After the warm inner (sort of long john), then we can use the outer that is quite warm, and then the jacket/winter coat. Use the layer system also for the legs, long john pants and inner heat pants are also sold in various clothing outlets.
 
COAT

Proper down jacket will make you feel comfortable all day :)
Yes, it is very important. Bedakan coat/ jacket untuk autumn dan untuk winter, karena saat autumn biasanya suhu tidak begitu dingin (mostly di atas 2'C), dengan winter yang dapat mencapai -10'C dan bahkan lebih dingin lagi. Namun pastikan coat yang kita gunakan juga dari bahan yang tidak tembus angin (winter wind is realllllly cold, trust me). Winter coat yang paling cocok adalah down jacket dengan bahan bulu angsa, ini paling efektif menahan dingin dan menjaga tubuh tetap hangat.


Yes, it is very important. Distinguish coat/jacket for autumn and for winter, because when autumn the temperatures is usually not so cold (mostly above 2'C), with the winter can reach -10'C and even colder. But make sure the coat that we use are also of material that does not penetrate the wind (winter wind is realllllly cold, trust me). Winter coat is the most suitable material down jacket with goose down, this is the most effective against the cold and keep your body warm.
 
FUR (Faux Only)



Tidak hanya down jacket dari bahan bulu angsa, bahan bulu (fur) juga efektif menahan dingin, plus stylish untuk berfoto. Namun pastikan fur jacket/ coat yang kita beli bukan terbuat dari bulu binatang asli, faux fur is also nice, dan ga kalah stylish :)


Not only down jacket made from goose feathers, fur materials (fur) are also effective against the cold, plus stylish to take pictures. But make sure the fur jacket / coat we buy is not made of real animal fur, faux fur is also nice, and still stylish :)
 
HAT




Percuma badan hangat kalau rambut terkena salju dan akhirnya salju mencair membasahi rambut dan kemudian dingin di kepala membuat anda sakit, pastikan sudah membawa topi yang sesuai, banyak kok topi yang stylish tapi dengan bahan yang tidak menyerap air.


It is useless to warm the body when your hair is exposed to snow and finally the melted snow wets your hair and then cold in the head makes you sick, make sure it is appropriate to bring a hat, there are a lot of really stylish hats but with a material that does not absorb water.
 
GLOVES & EAR MUFFS

Protect your ears!
Salah satu bagian tubuh yang sangat rentan dingin adalah tangan dan telinga, saat tangan mulai memerah kedinginan, dan telinga terasa membeku, it's surely a disaster dan anda hanya ingin segera masuk ke dalam ruangan. Beat the cold by wearing proper gloves (gunakan gloves yang tahan salju jika ingin memegang dan bermain dengan salju), dan pastikan kita membawa penutup kuping yang hangat. All is well when your hand and ears are warm enough :)


One part of the body that is most vulnerable to cold are hands and ears, when the hand began to flush the cold, and froze ears, it's surely a disaster and you just wanted to get into the room. Beat the cold by wearing proper gloves (use gloves that are resistant to snow if you want to hold and play with the snow), and make sure we take warm ear muff. All is well when your hand and ears are warm enough :)
 
SCARF/ NECK WARMER


Tutupi leher dengan scarf dari bahan yang menghangatkan, atau kain dengan tekstur bulu khusus untuk melindungi leher dari udara dingin. Namun jika coat kalian menutupi leher dengan baik, it's okay not wearing scarf/ neck warmer.


Cover the neck with a scarf of warming materials, or fabric with a special feather texture to protect the neck from the cold. But if your coat cover the neck well, it's okay not wearing scarf / neck warmer.
 
DRY BOOTS

When snow is all over your feet but it's okay as long as you're wearing the right boots :)
This is also important. Saat salju menempel di boots, suhu hangat dari dalam boots akan membuat salju mencair dan masuk ke dalam boots sehingga kaki basah (and it's surely iritatting). Gunakan boots yang tahan air, atau semprotkan spray anti air (water repellent spray) ke boots yang kita akan gunakan, spray ini banyak dijual di toko outdoor.


This is also important. When the snow stuck to the boots, the warm temperatures of the boots will make the snow melt and get into the boots so that your feet wet (and it is surely iritatting). Use waterproof boots, spray waterproof spray (water repellent spray) into boots that we will use, this spray is sold at outdoor stores.
 
WARMER

This is my HOLY GRAIL of warm, the godness of KEEPING WARM DURING WINTER, dan entah mengapa warmer semacam ini baru saya temukan di Jepang. Warmer sekali pakai dengan cara hanya membuka kemasan, dan kemudian semacam pouch berisi pasir ini akan menghangat selama 8 hingga 24 jam (tergantung jenis dan merk), warmer ini juga ada yang dapat ditempel di jaket, baju dll, dan ada yang khusus untuk dimasukkan ke dalam sepatu. Namun warmer ini harus diletakkan di tempat yang tidak terkena udara luar secara langsung, jadi masukkan di kantong baju, tempelkan di bagian dalam jaket dan masukkan ke dalam sepatu, tanpa langsung menempel dengan kulit. 


This is my HOLY GRAIL of warm, the godness of KEEPING WARM DURING WINTER, and somehow I just found this new kind of warmer in Japan. Disposable warmer is used by simply opening the packaging, and then a kind of pouch filled with sand will be warmed up for 8 to 24 hours (depending on the type and brand), warmer is also a thing that can be attached to the jacket, shirt, etc., and there is the special one that can be put in te shoes. But this warmer should be put in place that is not exposed to outside air directly, so put it in the pocket, stick it on the inside of the jacket and insert into the shoe, without being directly attached to the skin.
 

As my friend once said (he's living in England), "there's no bad weather, only bad clothing," so whatever the weather is, proper clothing will help us staying comfortable, and enjoy our trip

So, winter, snow, wind, let's say we've prepared for you all!
