These are very similar to the Engineering suits, but are somewhat cheaper, and do not provide quite the same type of protection.  Like the standard Engineering suits, these are 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. It was most commonly used by laser-welders in the various ship-yards.

The suit is designed to be completely self-contained, and as such can be used easily in Vacuum. Unlike the original type of engineering suit, this was not used often in environments where toxic chemicals had a chance to penetrate and harm the wearer, so it does not possess the acid resistance. Like the original engineering suit, this one 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. Lastly, the pain used on the suit was discovered to be light-reflective, and it was excellent against stray lasers or mishaps in the shipyards. The end result is that the suit gives its level in energy resistance when dealing with electricity and specifically lasers.

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.
