Abstract : The invention relates to a protective garment for providing cooling including a network of flexible tubing completing a loop between two chambers thermally connected to solidified carbon dioxide. Heat transfer fluid alternately flows between the chambers to transfer heat from the garment to the heat sink. The pressure generated by gasification of the carbon dioxide as heat is absorbed in each chamber causes the alternate flow. A float valve in each chamber controls the admission and exhaustion of the gaseous carbon dioxide.
