This range of undergarments contain quilted pockets filled with a
phase change substance with a transition point just around 40C.
(above normal body temperature of 37C). Worn underneath the
assortment of winter clothes, it absorbs heat generated by
human activity, thus reducing
over-heating. When the vigorous
activity ceases and the cold outside temperature begins to make
presence felt, the pockets undergo phase change back to solid
and release heat back to the body.
Obvious markets would be for winter athletes such as those
in sports such as the Biathlon, Cross Country Skiing or Gridiron

benefit. Unlike other pocket heaters these are reusable and
no external fuel source.
