If you wear long clothes, surely they're going to set alight and burn your whole body if hit, rather than burning one small patch on your skin, but if ravehead is right, DO NOT wear nylon, it melts to your skin. Painful.

Leather won't burn unless you REALLY try hard. For that matter, jeans don't really burn, either, unless you REALLY try hard.

DO NOT WET YOUR CLOTHES AS A SAFETY PRECAUTION. Dry cotton does not transmit heat. Wet cotton does.

The guy's right. And there is also the fact that the moisture in the cotton will turn to steam - and steam causes more severe damage than flames or boiling liquid.
