This outfit would be designed for camping trips. It would

||Hmmm. What material did you have in mind? Most edible
things that would break down at 100°C will do so more slowly
at armpit-temperature. Also, if you want it to be edible,
hydrocarbons aren't a good choice - carbohydrates, maybe.
||Back in WW2 Canadian military winter jackets came equipped with edible buttons that would boil down for soup as a survival tool.
