This paper describes the effect of clothing insulation on the lower critical temperature (LCT). Twelve young adult females were exposed to a temperature of 10‡ C for 2 1/2 h. LCT was estimated at five different clothing conditions according to the intersect method. The total weights of clothing ensembles (CW) of the five conditions were 0.45, 0.52, 0.82, 1.34, and 2.56 kg, and their thermal insulating values (I) were 0.44, 0.60, 0.77, 1.21, and 2.14 clo, respectively. LCT of the five clothing ensembles were estimated to be 26.4, 25.4, 23.5, 21.5, and 17.5‡ C, respectively. The regression equation of the logarithm of LCT on CW was calculated as log LCT=1.4469-0.08283 CW and that on I was log LCT=1.4613-0.10526 I, respectively. The rate of changes in LCT is suggested to be dependent on the clothing conditions as for the following equations: dLCT/dCW=-5.34 exp(-0.1907 CW) or dLCT/dI=-7.01 exp(-0.2424 I).
