||Thermal insulation and evaporative resistance of underwear and shirts made of 10 different materials were measured. In addition, the parameters determining the skin comfort of underwear were measured. The underwear and shirts made of materials that yielded the best results where used in tests with insulating clothing, in order to find the best cold-protective ensemble. Four different combinations of underwear, shirts and insulating overalls were studied. The length of time during which the ensembles can be worn in an environment of -30░C and 50% relative humidity was determined. The data are provided in a table as a function of energy metabolism.
