Abstract : Tests were conducted on the Z-2 and Z-3 type antig suits fabricated of 100- and 200-denier HT-1 material to determine their serviceability, anti-g protectiong and comfort. Both the single and double layer HT-1 anti-g suits are acceptable with regard to thermal comfort, serviceability, and adequacy as an anti-g suit. However, lack of taper and reefing zippers on the Z-2 suit and uncomfortable pressure points caused by abdominal bladder hose of the Z-3 suit make the suits unacceptable for service use. (Author)
