Abstract:

The report is based on a Quartermaster discussion of the problems of comfort in Army cold weather clothing. The comfort aspects directly connected with thermal protection from the cold were considered in terms of the present multilayer cold weather ensemble in which the fabric layers are of the water vapor permeable type, and the possible new cold weather systems in which water movement in the clothing assembly is restricted by placing a water vapor impermeable membrane in the clothing layers.
