Abstract
In combat, cold injuries appear in numbers that are not usually seen in peacetime trials and exercises. Between 1986 and 1989, several experiments were carried out to examine a trial concept to provide a more rigorous peacetime test of protective equipment. A traveling system including an insulated tent, clothing and sleeping bag was developed to enable a small group to be self-supported for many days and to cover distances on the order of 1000 miles across open country, on snowmobiles. Two trials are described and the performance of the equipment and the success of the trial concept are discussed.
