Moisture vapour permeable gloves extend thermal endurance and safe work time more than other similarly permeable chemical-biological ancillary protective items.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Practitioner summary: Thermoregulatory strain was quantified when wearing impermeable protective equipment. The thermal burden of intermittent exercise in desert-like environments was best alleviated by removing gloves compared to removing a respirator, overboots or body armour liner. Reducing the evaporative resistance of materials used for such kit, particularly gloves, should be investigated.
