New York artist and designer named Adam Harvey came up with the new gear.

The Items are made from special metal fibers that reflect heat. That makes it harder for drones to spot anyone through thermal surveillance. In order to make the items more comfortable Harvey is lining them with silk.

The items are already getting some attention and orders from people working in Afghanistan.

I can't help but think that wearing a suit made from Aerogel would be more comfortable and offer good anti-thermal properties

Normally if my feet/head are cold...the rest of my body is as well.
