The objective of this project was to investigate the cooling capability of an evaporative cooling vest; specifically, cooling of the torso region was studied. Modifying Natick Soldier Systems microclimate design, a microenvironment was created between the skin of the torso region and the outer layer of the cooling vest. A vest was designed, developed and tested using a mannequin with sweating capabilities. Through modeling and design test experimentation it was determined that this evaporative cooling system is indeed feasible.
