One of the main goals of the ArcticPro Lapland project has been to update and improve existing research, development and innovation facilities at the University of Lapland and Lapland University of Applied Sciences. To do this, we sought to find out what is needed now and in the future in the field of cold and arctic wear. The International ArcticPro network had already in 2013 conducted a short survey for end-users and suppliers about cold and protective wear. We decided to take a more in-depth look into what issues especially interest or concern users, also in leisure time clothing. This article concentrates on the insights of user research conducted with representatives of different users of functional clothing. User needs for arctic functional wear are discussed as well as focus points for future research and development projects surfaced.
