Clothing Requirements

Hygienic requirements for clothing to ensure freedom of breathing and blood circulation are especially important in hot weather. According to the main hygienic requirements, clothing in the summer should be breathable, hygroscopic (easily absorbing sweat) and light and should reflect the sunlight. An artificial microclimate is created between clothing and the human body due to the air gap.
