Abstract:

The report covers the evaluation of the flotation capabilities of the two-piece wet suit being used as survival equipment by Coast Guard personnel, a one-piece wet suit and an anti-exposure military flight suit. In addition, the wet suits and the anti-exposure suit were evaluated while wearing supplemental flotation, found necessary for self-righting capability. The report describes the tests conducted and results obtained. The report also describes additional tests conducted to determine if a downed pilot could zip closed the one-piece neoprene wet suit in the water.
