Abstract:

A spacer fabric has been developed which can be used in hot weather combat clothing ensembles to afford thermal protection meeting present military characteristics. Modifications of this fabric have been produced in very limited experimental quantities which hold potential for reducing the weight and heat load without significantly reducing the thermal protection. Other spacers fabrics have been developed which appear to hold promise for increasing the comfort of hot weather clothing ensembles when placed under items such as the load carrying pack. These fabrics are being examined also in designs of the hot weather clothing ensembles and for possible use in the bottom of casualty bags. Author
