Abstract:

Prototypes of an improved cold weather headgear ensemble have been developed which should provide protection from cold, wind, blowing snow, and frostbite in environments to -65F and 35 miles per hour wind velocities. The ensemble provides physical compatibility with military clothing and equipment and does not occlude the field of vision. The design covers the face, head and neck and is provided with features that permit achieving varying degrees of protection in response to varying severity of the environmental threat. The ensemble and its elements is composed largely of a helencaurethane foamcotton jersey laminate which provides excellent insulating properties, sound transparency, and permeability.
