I'm making designs for my own armor (I'm not going to have it built until I stop growing), but keep running in to one big problem: heat. My original idea was to put small tubes of water in the body suit that all connect to a pump on my thigh concealed by a holster and kama. The idea is that the movement of the water getting pumped through the tubes keeps me from overheating. The problems with this is that it would be very hard, very expensive, and I don't know where to get a small water pump, or if they even exist. Any ideas, vode?

There'd also be a problem with the heat from that motion. I'd look into different materials for the bodysuit, and see what firemen, SWAT, etc uses in their uniforms to keep them cool, because they wear a lot of heavy stuff. Also, if it comes down to it and you just have to endure it, work on keeping hydrated and keeping your electrolytes up so you can keep sweating (gross, but you do it for a reason, and that reason is to keep cool).

Vor entye, vod. After doing some searching on police forums, I decided to sew pouches on my body suit and slip ice packs in them.

A lot of people use small fans in their helmets as well, it really helps
