Associated Press Fashion Reporter – Finds Adidas Jacket….

adidasNEW YORK — Pulling on the track jacket when the newscaster on the radio just said it was 7 a.m. and already 83 degrees felt a little weird. Maybe even crazy.

I did it anyway….

I had read and heard so much about the technology-infused breathable wicking fabrics being used in the sports market to regulate body temperatures that I wanted to put them to the test — in a decidedly non-athletic environment. If these innovations kept triathletes and mountain climbers feeling not too cold and not too hot, couldn’t it work for a commuter facing an East Coast heat wave and an arctic office?
