Holding 2psi, though I need to maintain 3psi to be safe, and there's a pinhole leak to find. That's done by closing the windows, turning off all things that make sounds, and listening intently all across the suit for the leak; once I hear it, I pinpoint the location by putting my face right up to the fabric and letting the escaping air blow across my cheeks or lips; they're the only sensors I have that are sensitive to pick up the minute leak. Then apply a patch (sounds scary, but the patching procedure is excellent and has worked to date) and re-pressurize. The picture is rather dark, but I don't have time to mess with adjusting it, and it's just a snapshot.
