A Joint U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)/Army project is in progress to produce a Long-term (2.5-hr), Self-contained, Chemical Protective Ensemble (LSCPE) with a NIOSH-certified breathing apparatus. The LSCPE provides the wearer with a combination of assets including mobility, air supply duration of 2.5 hours, cooling capacity, and protection from chemical exposure. The LSCPE outergarment is totally encapsulating, has a zipper-closure, and is constructed of chlorinated polyethylene. The 'gathered' areas that encircle the waist and knees enable the inside volume of the suit to expand temporarily during normal movements.
