||The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of various types of personal cooling equipment (PCE) on the alleviation of heat strain during red pepper harvest simulated in a climatic chamber. Twelve subjects worked in a climatic chamber with a WBGT of 33░C, simulating the conditions for harvesting red pepper. Eight PCE conditions were tested involving various combinations of cooling scarves, vests and hats. It was found that a vest with a cooling area of only 3.3% body surface area was effective in alleviating heat strain in a simulated harvest work. Other findings are discussed.
