From an old Guinness book (from the time when it was a useful reference)
The highest dry-air temperature endured by naked men in the US Air Force experiment in 1960 was 400° F [204°C] and for heavily clothed men 500° F [260° C]. (Steaks require only 325° F [162.8 ° C].) Temperatures of 284° F [140° C] have been found quite bearable in sauna baths.
