Air conditioned clothing


Air conditioned clothing

Air conditioned clothing is intended primarily to be used by workers in areas where air conditioning systems cannot be easily installed, such as tunnels and underground construction sites.

Patents for air conditioned clothing have been around for years, but few products have actually made it to market. Two such items, a jacket and blouson, went into production in April 2005 in Japan. Attached to the clothing are two lightweight fans that help draw in air and help vaporize sweat. The fans, attached to the back of the clothing near the waist, are about 10 cm wide and run on four rechargeable AA-size nickel-hydrogen batteries.
