    661 assault pressure suit too hot?

    Just wondering what kind of hot weather people have used the 661 Assault Pressuit Suit in:

    I'm in texas and it can get pretty hot (90s). I was wanting some kind of chest and shoulder protection that wasn't too hot but did the job.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    The 661 Pressure suit to way too hot to wear in hot weather. I had one, and could not stand to wear it if the temp was over 80. I got a good deal on a Dianese, so I have been using that. The Dianese is pretty good on a hot day, but is expensive, well over $300.

    Another option would be the new Azonic suit, it is pretty well vented...

    my friend just got his in last night. its a 661 and we live in phoenix where it will get over 110 easy. He seems to think it is a good idea. but he will be testing it out at bootleg this weekend.
