Abstract : The CWU-10/P Anti-exposure Coverall was evaluated to determine its overall suitability. The tests revealed that the coverall did have some improvements over previous types but is unacceptable in that it does not provide adequate protection for the extremities during immersion in cold water. Other deficiencies were revealed that will require correction before the CWU-10/P can be considered a suitable anti-exposure coverall.
