Abstract : The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility was tasked by the Marine Corps Systems Command to provide baseline water resistance-hydrostatic pressure and moisture vapor transmission rate data on USMC proposed commercial and experimental rainsuits, before and after shipboard laundering. In addition, two experimental prototypes were to be tested following a four month user evaluation. Data obtained from this effort was intended to provide the Marine Corps with potential product variation information for comparison with data obtained from a similar evaluation being conducted concurrently by the U.S. Army Natick Research, Development, and Engineering Center(NRDEC).
