The human body has a narrow target temperature around 98 F.  Hot conditions and physical activity can easily push our temperature above this window.  This leads to physical discomfort, reduced performance, dehydration and even fatal heat stroke.  

While people have long been able to warm themselves up by adding layers, or even heated garments, we have yet to come up with an effective means for outdoor personal cooling.  

ThermoBionics is breaking that paradigm with a novel, proprietary, bio-inspired solution that dramatically cuts weight and increases cooling power over prior solutions.
