Air movement was varied from still air to 0.4 and 2 m/s. Each subject, in separate runs, wore a track suit (TS ensemble) of 60% polyester-40% cotton (effective clo = 0.5); a Gortex parka (GOR ensemble), covering a sweat shirt and bottom of TS (effective clo = 1.4); or the TS ensemble covered by polyethylene overgarment (POG ensemble). Esophageal, skin temperature (TJ at eight sites, and heart rate were continuously recorded. Dew-point sensors recorded temperatures under the garments at ambient and chest (windward site) and midscapular sites. Local skin wettedness (lot w) and ratio of evaporative heat loss ( Esk) to maximum evaporative capacity were determined. An observed average effective (P,, WornB2 . Torr-â) was
