Synthemesh “NovaRad” Skinsuit

Nova rad The NovaRad was originally intended for workers who must spend large amounts of time outside in the newly-warmer polar regions, where a lack of ozone protection from the sun’s rays means skin cancer for the unprotected. It has now been upgraded so that it can be used in low-hazard radiation areas such as fusion generators. The suit is made of skintight nanoweave and light enough to fit under normal clothing – all it needs is the rebreather facemask to be a complete protective outfit. A passive climate conditioning system is fitted as standard.
