These suits are universally worn by maintenance and technical staff across known space. The suits, although never intended to be used as armor, have proven to be quite effective in this role.  The average suit is made of thick, stiff fabric, reinforced with plates of flexible metal on the outside, and sturdy rods of light-weight metal along the limbs and torso. The fabric itself is air-tight and when combined with the helmet provide protection against vacuum and other such hazards. Furthermore, the fabric has been treated with special chemicals to counter most toxins such as acids and other corrosive substances. Finally the suit also contains copper and other conductive metals woven into the outer-skin of the suit, allowing direct electrical contact to flow away from the wearer, providing excellent protection from such hazards. This translates into Energy Resistance equal to the level of the suit against acid and electrical attacks.

This is the only type of heavy armor that can be worn by Mechanics who have not taken the Heavy Armor feat. If they do not take the feat, then the suits have the same statistics for them. However, if a mechanic does take the Heavy Armor feat, they will gain increased benefits while using this armor. The wearer gains a +1 and +2 to both EAC and KAC, and the energy resistance is increased by 50% (rounded down), and max dexterity bonus is increased by 1.
