Thanx I found it interesting that the researchers did not do a passive test for the Clo values of the clothing first or mention the thickness of the layer combinations.
Do the Canadian military not wear other items of clothing as mid layers with the Arctic ensemble tho?
I'll add a fur parka to my wish list tho

The main idea I got from those pages is that the native population wore fewer layers but that those layers were much warmer

Moondog, Nice find on that arctic website - huge number of pics, all sorts of information on how the Inuit live in current times.   Good stuff!

The Professor was an Australian too, but he died a few years ago. I remember a documentary they made on his life while he was still working.
he gave up academia and became a preacher
