This is common sense stuff, but I found it interesting that they gave values to layers of clothing to show how much energy vs how many layers of clothing to remain comfortable. Saving 30%-40% of your heating energy just by wearing some thermal underwear is an interesting concept, especially if heating fuel is scarce.

Yes , it's common sense but I'll bet most people just turn up the thermostat . We've had it pretty good for so long that just turning up the the heat is part of our conditioning . BUT I bet that's going to change for almost everyone very soon .

I swear by under armor for the winter, especially if I have to be outside for a couple hours. The most I went is about 3 and it did a great job... and this was just the UA undershirt that went beneath a couple tshirts, a hoodie, and a jacket... gotta wash it after that though... absorbs lots of sweat LOL
