a unit of thermal insulation used for clothing. One clo is intended to represent the insulation required to keep a resting person warm in an indoor room at 70 °F (21.1°C). The rate of a person's heat loss is measured in watts per square meter of skin area per kelvin of temperature difference across the clothing; the value of insulation is measured by the reciprocal of this rate, in square meter kelvins per watt (m2K/W). One clo is equal to 0.155 m2K/W or 1.550 togs.
