You really don't have to go through such extremes. Just be part of an 
SCA demo in full armor in an inside venue for 10 minutes. You'll feel 
like you are in a steam room of a cruiser during the battle of Manila 
Bay. (The only American casualty during that battle was an engineer who 
died of heat exhaustion, wearing a t-shirt and bell bottoms)

Been there, done that.
