Using a thermostat a jacket of this type would decide whether you are too hot or too cold. Then it can either let air out or pump air in to air sacs sewn into the clothing so changing the insulating properties of jacket hence allowing the body to remain at a comfortable temperature.

Useful link for all the climate control clothing ideas [justaguy, Jun 07 2005]
||Shoot! Once again, I was hoping for something different; I thought you were suggesting clothing that regulated the climate external to your body...
||It's a nice idea. But how would you make the garment cool you on a hot day?
||Just saw this after posting the same idea (now deleted). I like it! Has anyone tried baking this yet? I don't even need it automatic, just with a tube for me to blow into when it gets cold. What kind of fabric would be breathable and still be able to hold air for a while? I'm thinking of some type of ripstop fabric as used in kite-sewing.

||My inference is that it cannot, but who wears a jacket on a hot day?
