Abstract : The standard USAF overcoat, USAF field jacket, and experimental USAF utility jacket were evaluated and compared on the basis of their thermal insulation. This was measured by use of a thermal (copper) manikin. Results are expressed in thermal insulation units (clo). The clothing items were assigned a comparative rank on the basis of their mean measured thermal insulation and weight/insulation ratio. Results are summarized and presented in tabular form. (Author)
