The uniforms Team USA will wear for the opening ceremonies at the Olympics in Beijing were unveiled Thursday and offer special new features.
The jackets include a special honeycomb-like fabric layer that expands or contracts in response to changes in temperature, but does not need any wires or batteries, The Associated Press reported. The technology used at previous Olympic Games required batteries.
The female uniform features red boots and red fleece pants with predominantly navy jackets, while the men’s jackets are mostly white, The Associated Press reported. Both uniforms include navy knit beanies, navy gloves, and masks.
The team’s closing ceremony uniforms, which feature a buffalo plaid design, were previously announced in October, the AP reported.
The Winter Olympics begin Feb. 4 in Beijing, China.
