LifeLabs Develops “Weather-Proof” Clothes
A clothing apparel company, LifeLabs, made a smart clothing line. They used proprietary technology to make warmer, breathable clothes.
According to Treehugger, they claim this clothing will keep you 21°F warmer and 2 degrees cooler, with 30% less material.
LifeLabs uses ultra-breathable and lightweight fabrics that ensure a comfortable fit.
The unit for insulating clothing value is called “Clo.” One clo is equivalent to 70 degrees. This is the thermal insulation needed to keep a person comfortable while at rest.
LifeLabs says the clo value of their clothing is the same as a typical down jacket, with 30% less material used.
The company says clothing has a huge energy-saving potential that shouldn’t be ignored. They plan to expand this to other fabrics, such as car seats.
