Description (Specifications)[edit]

The VCWC consists of a one-piece set of thermal underwear which covers the whole body, including the hands, feet, head and all of the face except the eyes, a pair of boots, a pair of inner gloves, a pair of outer gloves, an inner thermal coverall, an outer coverall, with a waterproof outer layer, a hood, facemask, and goggles. The underwear and the goggles are electrically heated. The underwear is worn over an external catheter; urine is directed, via heated tubes down one leg and out through an opening in the sole of one of the boots.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

These suits are guaranteed to keep the wearer alive, if not comfortable, at temperatures of -100C. Some users have claimed to have successfully used the VCWC at lower temperatures, but these reports have not been verified. The battery in VCWC is usually powered by a body generator, which is incorporated into the suit.
