dc.description.abstract Two prototype dry suits by Viking Technical Rubber, Inc. were evaluated for potential use with MK 12 Surface-Supplied Diving System (SSDS). One dry suit was of lightweight configuration with integral soft boots, and the other was of heavier construction with hard, integrated boots. Studies of range of motion, buoyancy control, durability, comfort, ease of dressing, and leak integrity were conducted during 27 dives in a fresh water pool and 13 dives in a salt water channel to depths of 20 FSW. Deficiencies in the prototype suits and included fit (cut) of the suits, foot support, cut of weight pockets, and seals at wrists and neck. The durability of both suits was satisfactory during this limited testing. Recommendations for suit alternations to enhance compatibility with the MK 12 SSDS were made. en
