Athletes and military personnel undertake heat acclimation (HA) to confer physiological/perceptual adaptation to heat stress. HA typically occurs within environmental chambers, which may be impractical precluding use of the intervention. An alternate HA method aside from post-exercise bathing and sauna use, includes restricting evaporative heat loss during exercise. We investigated the efficacy of an inexpensive and practical sauna suit across hot/temperate conditions to induce equivalent physiological strain to HA.
