Self-Cooling Clothing Cools You Down When You Break a Sweat

The weather on my side of the world has been crazy lately. One minute it’s scorching hot, and the next, it’s so humid that I can literally feel the water vapor hanging in the air condense on my skin.

Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but I’m not kidding about the erratic weather. Now if only there were some kind of clothing that could automatically cool me down once I begin breaking out a sweat. Oh, wait, there is already clothing that can do that.


Released and developed by the Columbia Sportswear Company, the Omni-Freeze line of clothing automatically cools down once sweat comes into contact with it. Each item in the line is made with special flat yarns that encourage the release of heat and altogether feel cooler to the touch. Aside from that, the flat yarns are bonded with a special chemical that reacts with sweat (or water) to provide a cooling effect.

The whole thing sounds like a really good idea to me. However, I can’t help but wonder: what if the wearer gets caught in a downpour? I doubt anyone would ever want to cool down even more during a heavy storm.
