Abstract
An experimental head-protection system, subjected to limited testing during the 1974 winter, was modified and field tested during Exercise Honky Tonk at Fort Churchill, Manitoba in January 1975. The modified headgear was found to provide complete protection against frostbite and to prevent spectacle frosting under extreme windchill conditions. Under milder conditions or during physical activity, the headgear was found to be too warm and spectacle frosting occurred.
