And once again, Turbs, if you had been paying attention to what has been presented to you, or if you had actually been doing the necessary research and following the references, you would find that the information comes from this 1966 report
NASA - Bioenergetics of Space Suits for Lunar Exploration.
Which itself references a 1963 series of tests done on the pre-prototype Apollo suit:
Let us now return to the actual metabolic cost of locomotion in current space-suit assemblies. In the spring of 1963 the AiResearch Manufacturing Division of the Garrett Corporation compared the effects of unpressurized and pressurized suits on metabolic requirements of walking. The pre-prototype suit being developed by the International Latex Corporation for the Apollo mission was used. The data to be presented were communicated by Wortz of the AiResearch Manufacturing Division.
Is it sinking in yet, Turbs...?
The Apollo spacesuits already existed in final version, and had been used on several Apollo missions.
Apollo prototype suits make no sense, if they already had an improved version, a 'proven' success...
Those tests were done in 1963, BEFORE THE FIRST UNMANNED GEMINI MISSION WAS LAUNCHED.
Whether the report you're quoting was written in 1971, 1984 or yesterday does not make any difference to that fact that the data being referred to was produced in 1963 from a suit that bears only a superficial semblance to the production model A7L suit that was used on the Moon.
This is why your document does not support your argument.
This is why you have failed once again to prove anything but your general incompetence at doing even the simplest research.
