dc.description.abstract The combination of a dry suit worn over an insulating undergarment is called the Passive Thermal System (PTS), formerly called the Passive Diving Thermal Protection System (PDTPS). This report is based upon information gathered at the 1988 Divers Equipment Manufacturing Association (DEMA) Conference in New Orleans and by four weeks of telephone calls and written correspondence with dry suit company engineers and sales representatives. Due to upcoming changes in dry suit design, it is anticipated that this report will soon need to be updated. This report describes the following information form the ten dry suit companies: company address and telephone number, company information, users of the dry suit, dry suit material used, sizes nonmagnetic capability, zipper configuration, value placement, wrist seal and glove connection, hood and boot configuration, manufacturing lead time, coat, and additional information to the consumer. Due to paucity of valid scientific evaluations of dry suits, comparisons between dry suits could not be made. Keywords: Exposure suits. (kt) en
