||Three kinds of cold protective clothing were tested on six male subjects performing ergometric exercises in a climatic chamber at -10 and -15░C. Changes in core and skin temperature, pulmonary minute ventilation, heart rate, body mass, and temperature and relative humidity under the clothes were measured. Results show that thermal equilibrium was achieved and maintained throughout the investigated work time (60min) and that the tested clothing may be worn during the whole shift. Changes in thermal stress criteria can be used to determine the maximum duration of exposure for cold protective clothing with unknown thermal insulation.
