The book is divided into 3 parts. Part 1 examines the effects of design and material properties in the performance of cold weather clothing; Part 2 looks at evaluation methods while Part 3 reviews the performance of key innovative products. This chapter is included in Part 1 acknowledging the importance of biomimetic principles in the design of functional clothing systems.
