Temperature control fabrics: optimising wearer comfort
published in Issue 44, 1st quarter 2013
Clothing made from temperature control fabrics plays a critical role in boosting the physiological comfort of the wearer -- and such comfort can have a vital role to play in the performance of an athlete. A major trend in the outdoor wear industry is the use of fibres and fabrics which utilise thermal adaptive technology for specific parts of the body. This technology moderates the effects of temperature fluctuations by warming the body when the temperature drops or cooling the body when the temperature rises. Other technologies -- such as silver-based fabrics, battery-powered garments and adjustable insulation systems -- are also attracting the attention of outdoor enthusiasts. This report provides a wealth of information on: the physiology of temperature regulation; the role of clothing in temperature regulation; and the different types of temperature regulating fabrics and materials. The report also features detailed information on recent innovations in temperature control fabrics and apparel, and provides an outlook for the future of the market.
