i have designed a hardshell back pack that im currently in the middle of the build process of (will be posting pictures on this thread later on if anyone is interested in how im doing this all) the backpack will be the housing of essentially helmet cooling fans attatched to clear rubber tubing used for aquariums and such its about the same circumference as a mcdonalds straw, the clear rubber tubing is attacthed to the fans so cool air is being pushed through them the tubes are attactched to an under shirt with the end of the tubes being directed to different parts of the body that i want the air to be blowing on (arm pits, chest and stomach, ect.) all the fans are connected to a 9volt battery pack with switch, the switch being on the outside of the back pack arms reach around to access it easily. this is the concept idea let me know what you think and if you want me to post pictures and progress of the build , i will list all the things and components and where i got them and how much it cost as well, hope you enjoy!

If you can get the whole thing working, it's pretty similar to a concept I've designed (but never got around to building).  If you have extra length of hose, you might want to (as an option) run a few loops of it around or between a couple ice packs, which will cool down the outside air even more... and in the winter, you can use a hot water bottle or the like to turn your suit cooler into a suit heater.

Here's a link to help you out. I can't remember if I sent this to you or not already.

When you host your photos on an image hosting website (DO NOT use Photobucket), just look for the clickable BBCode link for forums. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

i have more cooling fans on the way , but for now im working on the structure and i plan on sealing up the seems with gorilla glue silicone from the inside and then use bondo on the outside and smooth it out and sand it make it look like one solid piece and then ill do the primary metal grey paint job and then ill start adding the greeblies and leds and fix up the hatches so i can open it up and get inside of it for hooking up the fans and tubing for the cooling system and ill finish it up with a weathered damaged paint job... any suggestions on what greeblies you can imagine on this thing?

Switches and buttons (think RadioShack) and old school computer keys. I've found total junk outside just walking around and think "Hey, that would look good on my kit!". The least likely places you visit seem to have the coolest stuff.  :P

what about antenes of some sort would those go good or be out of context cause its more of a life support system of sorts and not really comunicating anything ... well never mind answered my own question

That would be great, too. As long as it looks like it fits - add it. That's why it's so fun building this stuff. Be as creative as you can.

That set up reminds me of an episode of Tested when Adam went to con in a 2001: A Space Odyssey suit.  Check out that episode on YouTube to see how he set up his cooling system.
