Hazmat suits are one of the trademarks of garments purpose made for the most dangerous and delicate environments you can get exposed to — so why are so many of them uncomfortable and awkward? Enter Blauer, who's slogan is literally "Serious Protection".
The aforementioned uniform-maker is known to make excellent garments for Military, Law Enforcement & Tactical Entry, EMS, and Firefighting professions. When it comes to hazmat suit design, they didn't mess around — their XRT or 'Extended Response Team' hazmat suits are designed to perform well both as a protective garment in hazardous environments as well as something that won't wear through instantly like a flimsy Tyvek suit would.
Using GORE®️CHEMPAK®️ Fabric as the basis for its construction, it has many of the same properties you'd be familiar with if you've used Gore-Tex®️. Heat and perspiration have no trouble escaping unlike many stuffy suits. It's highly abrasion resistant, high mobility, & a higher protection rating than the typical OSHA rated suit.
Gloves & booties are integrated, and it features a butyl rubber face seal, meaning no chemical tape is necessary when paired with a proper respirator. The suits are also able to be worn for eight hours straight (hence, 'Extended Response') without compromising protection or trapping in heat.
And of course, it's all about looking good too — the suit is a law-enforcement coded wolf grey instead of the typical COVID-fighting-warrior yellow as the cherry on top.

NFPA 1994 Class 3 summarized:
"Class 3 ensembles are designed for missions where the vapor, liquid or particulate hazards are below IDLH (immediately dangerous to life or health) levels, thus allowing the use of a CBRN air-purifying respirator (APR) or a CBRN powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR). Because this class of ensemble and higher were developed under the premise of longer-duration operations, the performance specification includes a total heat loss (THL) requirement; this has led to the introduction of breathable semi-permeable or selectively permeable materials for suit construction."
