Results indicated that a all three masks were virtually equivalent with respect to the size of the field of vision and personequipment compatibility, b acceptability of the masks varied from a psychoacoustic point of view as a function of the particular variable being measured, and c under simulated arctic conditions, the experimental masks offered far better protection of the wearers skin than did the standard mask.
