Abstract:

The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility was tasked by the Marine Corps Systems Command to conduct physical and thermal insulation testing on several commercial and standard socks, prior to and after laundering, using the current Navy shipboard procedure. Results obtained from this evaluation will provide Marine Corps baseline comparison for work concurrently tasked to the Natick Research, Development and Engineering CenterNRDEC. Based on test results, two sock systems were recommended as good candidates for use in cold weather.
