    The latest collection by Тhe North Face features clothes made from radiation-resistant materials in a possible attempt to play the potential nuclear stand-off card.

    While politicians and diplomats try to "improve" relations between countries which have nuclear arsenals, ordinary people and, as it turns out, clothing firms are preparing for the worst. Namely, American clothing brand The North Face has released a new collection featuring outerwear, sweatshirts and T-shirts made of Tyvek — a material that protects from not only dirt and rain, but also from all sorts of acids or alkali and even radioactive dust. Some raincoat models even have a respirator mask embedded in the hood.

    Tyvek is widely used in production of industrial protective gear, resistant to the most hazardous liquids or materials and also in construction due to its temperature preserving features.
