Abstract
The paper discusses the failings of conventional small-scale exercises and trials of new and of in-use equipment and clothing for cold weather, and suggests a new type of trial. This trial concept was tested during a seven hundred kilometre, eight day patrol by snowmobile in the Canadian North. Compared to a previous, more conventional trial, a more rigorous test of clothing and equipment is shown to have resulted. Observations of performance incentives and behaviour as they pertain to the concept of the trial are discussed.
