OUTLIER Webshop: Pants
high end technical pants, with tailoring styled more for biking (pockets/loops won't interfere with harnesses or places that come in contact with the seat or frame). Apparently now working with warp knit weft insertion fabric that's pretty fancy.

Wow, microfluidic channels embedded in fabric which allow directional control of fluid movement, so you can do things like channel sweat from a shirt into the shirt bottom so it will drip out.

Radiative human body cooling by nanoporous polyethylene textile | Science
So visual light opaque but IR transparent polyethylene fibers (used in batteries) can be used to make clothing that feels cooler since it isn't trapping IR heat. Coupled with some treatment to make it hydrophilic so it doesn't bead up sweat, and it could be the basis for new summer clothes.

So the interesting question is, will this beat carbon nanotubes for high tensile applications or not? Say, using a woven sheet of diamond nanothread, packed inside a graphene wrapper? Space Elevator guys will love this...

Empa - MM-Dekubitus Bettlaken
Interesting new weave pattern results in a dot-matrix like effect, creating raised threads/contact points. Apparently this reduces overall contact, which is counter-intuitive considering for a pressure ulcer you theoretically would want to decrease, not increase contact pressure. This somehow improves comfort though and reduces pressure ulcer occurrence.

AMSilk | high performance materials: Biosteel Spidersilk Fibers
Interesting, that announcement and production ramp up is roughly the same as Spiber in japan. Are they both licensing the core spider silk genetically modified bacteria production tech from Spiber in Sweden?

Spiber Inc.
Japanese company commercializing mass production artificial spider silk via genetically modified microorganisms (bacteria?). The fibroin biopolymer based fiber will be called QMONOS and is scheduled for 2015 mass production at the pilot plant (100Kg/month). Except there is a swedish company with the same name, and had research in approximately the same time frame, and looking for partners. Yet this japanese company's site seems to artfully mention that this is a japanese technology push. Something smells fishy here...

Bioinspired fibers change color when stretched — Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Interesting photonic fiber research, which resembles dichroic materials, but because it is stretchable, allows active changing of the color by adjusting the bandgap. Possible uses in smart cloth showing deformation damage, or as a possible active camouflage textile system.
