Abstract : The effects of various types of issue clothing and non-standard items were measured during two acclimatization experiments, utilizing thirty (30) enlisted volunteers in the Hot Room of the Armored Medical Research Laboratory. The men were well acclimatized and showed no evidence of deterioration during the period of test of the clothing. Relative changes in heart rate, rectal temperature, water (sweat) loss and subjective reactions during and upon completion of standard work were noted. (Author)
