US Army Soldiers Wear Kleinert's Sweatproof Undershirts

In the 120 degree sun in Iraq and Afghanistan, US army soldiers have been wearing Kleinert's sweatproof undershirts under their kevlar vests to stop the fluid from entering their vests and keeping them cooler. This is known as thermoregulation (controlling the cooling effect and regulating the body's temperature). Here is a link to an article about the science of thermoregulation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoregulation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoregulation
