* When treating deadly contagious diseases like ebola, medical hazmat suits are a must. Unfortunately, they also limit one's vision as well as one's hearing not just with the muffling of the ears, but also the constant noisy rustling of the material. Furthermore, they are stifling hot to wear, especially in those African hot zones, and they have to be taken off very carefully in precisely prescribed methods lest the wearer become infected themselves by the contaminates on the suits.

** Part of the reason for a "buddy system" in CBRNE operations is the need to decontaminate each other at the end of the operation. If you're the only suited operator, and you strip off your gear willy-nilly, you yourself will now require decontamination, and there's no one suited up to decon ''you.''

* One of the reasons modern firefighters and hazmat team specialists are often extremely fit and badass is that their training involves heavy exercises ''while'' wearing the entire hazmat suit, often with the gasmask attached. Often the exercise includes the donning of the suit and is timed.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has a Hazmat Suit which gives complete protection from radiation. You can find one in Hugo's Hole, which is very radioactive. Reaching the suit is left as an exercise for the player.

Another location you can find the suits is in the Four Leaves Chem Factory, where the Ghoul workers can be seen wearing them while attacking you. [[spoiler: You'll need the suits if you want to explore the Glowing Sea.]]

** ''VideoGame/FalloutTactics'' has the Environmental Armor which is a modified armored hazmat suit. While it is very effective at protecting the wearer against radiation and poison, it also kills the wearers peripheral vision and has a perception penalty. It is also one of the very few armor that can be worn by ghoul recruits.

* You can find and buy a few hazmat suits in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, as well as finding them on dead researchers. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Radiation_Suit radiation suit]] unfortunately offers only 30% - 40% radiation resistance... and thanks to [[ArtisticLicenseNuclearPhysics the way the game handles radiation]] you can still die from standing in a radioactive puddle.
