mark12A: This is relevant to my interests.I want to build an environment suit that I can wear when working outside in howling New Hampshire blizzards. I already bought a Mustang immersion survival suit as a start. I need to build a spacesuit-like helmet to go with it. The idea is to have a heated faceplate (like they already have on snowmobiling helmets), and a ventilation system that would take in outside air, circulate it thru tubing going around my torso inside the suit to warm it without picking up moisture from my sweat, and blow it into the helmet. Also, instead of using heating elements to keep warm, I would use the heavy insulation of the suit to keep me warm, and when I exert myself, prevent overheating by blowing outside air into the suit to keep comfortable. Add heated motorcycle gloves and socks, a chest pack for the battery and control panel, external lighting, and viola! I can sit in comfort on my tractor/snowblower and blow snow when the windchill is -50F.I'm going to attempt to make the helmet assembly out of fiberglass and cut up a Lexan display dome for the faceplate.
