Abstract : Research was carried out into clothing worn by members of Antarctic expeditions. Tests were conducted on three types of clothing to test their heat-reflecting properties. The K.A.E. (complex Antarctic expedition) suit combined with a leather suit, is best, although it is cumbersome and quite heavy.
