A predicted insulation Index (Iclp) for clothing was used to assess the clothing insulation required to maintain thermal comfort during a mountain hike. The study area was the Łysogóry Range of central Poland’s Świętokrzyskie Mts. The predicted insulation Index (Iclp) of clothing varied significantly depending on meteorological conditions, elevation of the measurement site, dominant vegetation and the metabolism rate of the hiker. Only “arctic” wear (Iclp > 4.00 clo) allows thermal comfort to be maintained by a standing man hiking in the Łysogóry Range on a frosty and windy winter day. Summer sports clothing (Iclp = 1.00-1.50 clo) seems to offer sufficient protection for a standing man at the foot or on the slopes of the Łysogóry Range during a warm spring day. The results of this study might prove useful as hiking trips are planned in other forested low mountain areas of Central Europe. – (BJ).
