"I'm involved in both sailing and mountain climbing, and I've come on some interesting ideas. Dupont makes some breathable fabric that provides sun protection and a one way ticket for water. Using two oposing layers of this one could wick presperation away from the skin, and using a heal pump (would take some fabbing, but shouldnt be too hard) and a small desalination unit sold at any chandlery (marine hardware store) with a cammel pack, should make this a worable idea. Of course, the desal units take a grip of preasure, so the pump and plumbing would need to be rather hard core. I'll let you know if I pull it off. -- James"

"There are several ways to pump a still suit. One the use of peristaltic pumps wich would use body movement to pump the suit systems. The next would by a push-me-pull-you system of two or four pumps attached to the side of each ankle that is one or two pumps at the front of each ankle and the same number of pumps at the back of each ankle thus providing a continuous pumping action that would pump as you walked, you could do the same at the knees but you would have to have the pumps one above and one below thus as you walked you should have a continuous pumping action. with the two pumping systems I have just described you would not necessarily need any electric pumps or any other types but you could use the two types together."

"to prevent death by heat stroke there would need to be a heat pump incorporated into the suit. Sweat that doesn't leave the system does nothing. "

"I remember reading about a Japanese invention that was coopted by a major sports apparel manufacturer that... Would power from the natural motion of a woman's breats (without brassiere). Will have to Google it sometime to find a source."
