Originally intended for Tanken personnel, it was decided that since any personnel in the SSS could be sent on expeditions, that it would become the standard apparel for all ground based personnel.
This is the primary uniform of SSS personnel. Designed to be durable, and provide basic protection from hazards.
A segmented jumpsuit with a zipper down the front. It is worn with a colored sleeveless t-shirt that denotes the section of the SSS the wearer belongs to. The jumpsuit itself is actually two pieces that attach at the waist with a concealed zipper. A fabric belt is worn to cinch the waist. Boots complete the uniform. An optional vest is available that provides convenient storage of personal equipment.
Top portion of the jumpsuit has hook and loop areas for attaching the various items. The zipper runs from the opening below the neck to the waist. A concealed zipper runs along the bottom of the top to attach it to the pants.
For hot environments an alternative top is available which has ventilated side panels. it is the same as Normal top in all other regards.
The pants have belt loops at the top, and two pockets in the front.
The Tanken uniform is made of special fabric, which is composed of three layers.
