Abstract
The study examined the effects of a hot environmental temperature (40C and 50% relative humidity) and metabolic rate on soldiers' tolerance time (TT) while wearing various levels of the Canadian Forces biological and chemical (BC) defence protective clothing. The subjects, 19 unacclimatized males, were assigned to exercise at either a light intermittent (LI) (N = 4), light continuous (LC) (N = 5), moderate continuous (MC) (N = 5) or heavy continuous (HC) (N =%) metabolic rate.
