EP3258802: ADAPTIVE MATERIAL ARTICLE SYSTEM
Invention relates to an adaptive material garment system includes a number of components to effectively transport and exhaust moisture and thermal energy while protecting the wearer from undesired levels of air permeability. Therefore, an adaptive material responsive to stimuli, such as moisture, is used as a base layer against a wearer's skin. The base layer is effective to transport thermal energy and/or sweat away from the skin. The base layer may be formed with a first gauge greater than and a denier that is less than an outer article. The outer article may also be formed from an adaptive material responsive to the same or different stimuli. The outer article may also have a wind-resistant panel having apertures and a selectively coupled perimeter.
