Abstract
The paper examines the donning and doffing process for the Canadian Forces combat shirt, trousers and coveralls in order to identify the areas of maximum stress during donning and doffing. It was found that the greatest stress occurs across the back of the shirt or coverall top on donning when both arms are partially into the sleeves and the garment back is stretched between the two elbows.
