Environmental Suit - Dragon 112.png

An environmental suit is designed to protect its wearer from the weather and other conditions on habitable planets.[1] It is made of lightweight, quilted cloth.[2] The suit covers the entire body and has a built-in gas mask[3], goggles, and a small heating/cooling system. This will keep the suit cooled to a comfortable temperature on hot planets and warm on cold planets.

The suit also protects against tainted atmospheres, airborne irritants, and dust- and sandstorms. Any field may be used with the suit, and it may be worn under an albedo suit or skeinsuit. It may not be worn under a slipsuit. The environmental suit itself gives no protection from attacks. The suit may be powered from a power pack or powerclip.

An environmental suit uses 1 SEU per day if the heating/cooling system is used.

Cost: 100 Cr[4]
Mass: 2 kg
