Abstract
Design and evaluation of cold weather clothing require an understanding of the basic mechanisms of heat and vapour flow in clothing in order, on the one hand, to ensure that the characterization of the clothing is relevant and accurate and, on the other hand, to minimize the number of measurements required for a complete characterization. We present a review of the work at DREO of the past six years directed at gaining that understanding, and give examples of how it may guide the clothing designer.
