3. Trim the wrist seals in the same way as the
neck seal, except the trimming increments must
not exceed one-third inch at a time.
4. After trimming the seals, have the aircrew
member put on the coveralls to determine the seal
restriction and the water-sealing characteristics.
If any adjustments are necessary, you must repeat
steps 1 through 3.
SRU-2WP RUBBER SOCKS. The SRU-25/P
rubber socks are supplied in eight sizes. The
rubber socks are one-piece and are molded to
shape to provide comfort and a good fit. The tops
of the socks extend above the flight boots to
reduce bulk and restriction.
The size of the SRU-25/P rubber socks will
be governed by the size of the flight boot to be
used. Usually, a rubber sock one size smaller than
the boot to be used will provide an acceptable fit.
The aircrew member should wear a pair of heavy
wool socks, then put on a pair of SRU-25/P
rubber socks corresponding to his normal boot
size. The rubber socks should be worn in a slightly
stretched condition to prevent wrinkles or bulk
in the boot, but they must not be too tight. Larger
or smaller rubber socks and/or boots may be
required for a proper fit.
To fit the rubber socks, select the correct size
of rubber socks and fit them to the CWU-62/P
coveralls as follows:
1. Have the aircrew member put on the
antiexposure assembly (except the hood, mittens,
and flight suit), the MA-2 torso harness, if
applicable, and a pair of properly fitted, heavy
2. Mark the coverall legs and socks (L and R)
on the inside and front and back. This is to ensure
the socks are matched to the correct leg during
3. Have the aircrew member sit in a straight-
back chair with his legs drawn back, heels directly
below the kneecaps, and his feet flat on the floor.
4. Turn the top 2 inches of sock down,
forming a temporary cuff. Mark the circum-
ference of the coverall legs where they meet the
