Abstract

OBJECTIVE Various combinations of hydrophilic and hydrophobic fabric layers are expected to result in different microclimate temperature and humidity as their transport mechanisms are different. Three different layers of fabrics with or without air layers were compared to determine the relative effect of the hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity of the fabrics and the air layer. The obtained results will provide us the information to design comfortable garment layering system.
