Abstract
The concept and theoretical considerations of a clothing system for cold weather is discussed. The temperature range of interest was -40 to 10C which was divided into an extreme-cold temperature range (-40 to -10C) and a cold wet temperature range (-10 to 10C). An essential goal of the clothing system was to provide adequate thermal insulation for metabolic rates between 150 and 600 W while a desirable goal was to provide adequate thermal insulation for metabolic rates up to 1000 W. The clothing differs from conventional clothing mainly in its doctrine of use as insulation is added or removed from the outside. This makes the clothing more versatile and more easily used.
