Abstract : The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility was tasked by the Marine Corps Systems Command to conduct testing of various types of lightweight cold weather underwear materials for physical and thermal characteristics. These tests were conducted in order to develop a Marine Corps standard for future product development. Based on test results, two fabrics were recommended as good candidates for use in lightweight cold weather underwear.
