Joint Service Lightweight Integrated Suit Technology (“JSLIST”) Overgarment, which is now the standard CBRN battledress for all U.S. Armed Forces.The qualification process for the JSLIST material system was the most thorough and exhaustive testing and evaluation of CBRN protective technologies ever conducted. Over a period of four years, the United States evaluated 57 different protective material systems from around the world.
This grueling competitive evaluation included testing with the full spectrum of threat agents, not only in new condition but also after extensive operational field wear by U.S. combat troops. Field wear trials included live fire exercises under conditions designed to realistically replicate the worst battlefield wear and tear, and operational testing with all U.S. weapons platforms. Because JSLIST was designed to be worn by all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces in all climatic conditions, wear trials were conducted in arctic, desert, tropical, and woodland deployments. When combined with the Chemical Protective Mask, the JSLIST provides protection against chemical and biological agents, radioactive fallout particles, and battlefield contaminants.
The JSLIST is the product of a four-Service effort to field a common chemical protective clothing ensemble including a lightweight CB protective garment, multi-purpose overboots and gloves. Each component is based on state-of-the-art materiel technologies that have undergone extensive user evaluation and field and laboratory testing. JSLIST Program objectives included reduced heat stress, compatibility with all interfacing equipment, longer wear, and washability. The JSLIST overgarment is a universal, lightweight, two-piece, front-opening suit that can be worn as an overgarment or as a primary uniform over underwear. It has an integral hood, bellows-type sockets, high-waist trousers, adjustable suspenders, adjustable waistband and a waist-length jacket that enhances system comfort, improves system acceptance and maximizes compatibility with the individual user equipment.
Apart from the integral hood, on the waist-long coat, a flap fastened with Velcro covers the zipper. The sleeves also have Velcro wrist-closure adjustment tabs, and the left sleeve has an outside expandable pocket with flap.
The JSLIST liner consists of a non-woven front, laminated to activate carbon spheres and bonded to a knitted back that absorbs chemical agents. Previously, the BDO liner consisted of charcoal-impregnated polyurethane foam and nylon tricot laminate. The BDO foam deteriorated as the soldiers rubbed against it, and that could become messy.
The bulky charcoal layer found in the older BDO is replaced with a selectively permeable membrane that is lighter and will block harmful substances, rather than absorb them. More perspiration will also be able to escape. Weighing just under six pounds, the new suit is about half the weight of the BDO. It is available in 4-color Woodland or a 3-color Desert Camouflage pattern. It can be worn in an uncontaminated environment for 45 days with up to six launderings or for over 120 days with no launderings. The JSLIST can be worn in a contaminated environment for 24 hours. Each soldier is issued two JSLIST.
