Heat-reflective layered apparel or footwear constructed from various combinations of layers of materials having selected thermal and moisture transfer properties to provide improved performance characteristics. Within these various combinations, the addition of a very thin heat reflective layer, made with a metallic material such as aluminum, applied using a vacuum plasma vapor deposition method, provides a coating that will reflect infra red heat energy either back to the body or away from the body. This heat reflective coating is so thin that is does not adversely alter the original suppporting fabrics hand feel, drape,weight , strectch or breathability. Various layers manage the body heat of an individual by reflection or thermal retention while also providing moisture wicking and antimicrobial function. Other layers manage thermal isolation from the external temperatures by using materials with very low thermal conductivity in combination with waterproof layers that can also be breathable.
