In addition to the physical abilities and skills of the participants, outdoor sports also require outdoor clothing that can adapt to harsh weather and complex geographic environments to ensure the personal safety of the athletes.

Usually, the outdoor clothing we see is a "two-in-one" or "three-in-one" fabric structure. These fabric structures are based on a high-tech ventilated and warm inner layer, combined with an outer layer that is windproof, waterproof, anti-fouling, anti-static, etc., which can provide good protection for outdoor athletes.

The inner layer used in outdoor sportswear is mostly velvet. Due to the large heat generation and sweat evaporation of outdoor sports. Good heat dissipation and ventilation performance of clothing are required. Functional fabrics have the advantages of easy drying and good breathability and warmth retention. Therefore, they are often used as warm materials for winter outdoor sportswear, which can keep the wearer dry and comfortable, and make the clothing warm and light.

Most of the outer fabrics of common outdoor sportswear require a certain degree of waterproof performance. At the same time, in order to keep the human body dry, some clothing adds a mesh cloth to the rainproof outer fabric as a lining to separate the body from the waterproof outer layer. Keep away from moisture.

Secondly, the design of the fabric must be windproof. Sports such as mountain climbing, skiing or gliding are all carried out in environments with high wind speeds.

The wear resistance of clothing fabrics cannot be ignored. Even the requirements for antibacterial, deodorant and stain resistance are relatively high. In addition, for outdoor sports such as rock climbing and forestry in the wild, clothing fabrics must have good tensile and tear resistance properties. These performance requirements are very demanding from the perspective of textile technology.
