- Enviro-Suit: The Infiltrator is designed more to protect its wearer from hostile environments and effects than to turn them into armored tanks. It provides moderate defenses against heat, cold, high-gravity and gravitic distortions, radiation, chemicals, and acids. It can be used as an Extra-vehicular suit for pilots in extreme situations but only for a short time if the wearer has a breathing apparatus.
- Shape-Shifter: The armor can be stretched, pulled, or gathered up to shift its shape covering more or less of the body at the wearer’s discretion. This means it can be worn under clothes like shorts, tank tops, strapless dresses or skirts and pulled to be hidden beneath these with ease. It can also be quickly pulled to cover the wearer from neck to toe and seal around them.
- Undetected: The suit itself, not the wearer or anything else on them, is undetectable on scanners or sensors like those used at customs, hand-held ones, or other such devices. Basically it can be worn and unless given a cavity search it won’t be found or seen.
- Blunt Force: The suit provides almost no defense against solid slugs, strike weapons, and blunt force trauma since it is a skin tight suit with no solid parts.
The AE-AS3 Infiltrator is less designed as a stealth suit like its predecessors but instead as a less obvious form of personal armor. While originally intended to be distributed to operatives as a defensive measure when in public, its abilities as a discrete personnel armor for independent operators, freighter captains, smugglers, and even the wealthy and noble people of the galaxy could not be overlooked.
The suit is made from skin tight, flexible fibers similar to shell spidersilk, and its derivative Spidersilk Elastax, it provides a decent level of energy weapon resistance along with moderate environmental defenses and protections. Also like Spidersilk Elastex the material is able to be stretched and pulled to cover a being of roughly humanoid proportions as well as forming into sleeves where there previously were none and even into gloves, sealing itself together until it is taken off. Where it differs is its ability to collapse into a smaller version of itself such as gathering up the legs or arms which collapse and condense into a wrinkleless article of clothing. It can be formed into something as small as boxer-briefs and then pulled into a full body-stocking at will, provided the wearer is able to manually do so. This allows the suit to be worn under clothing such as tank tops, strapless dresses, shorts, and the like without notice. Some have dubbed them “Armor-Spanx” due to this quality.
Unique to it, the suit itself is undetectable by scans, sensors, security, or other such measures due to any of a variety of sensor blocking substances used in its construction. Anything other than physically seeing the suit is generally considered to be unable to detect it. However, this applies only to the suit and not the person wearing it or anything they may have attempted to conceal inside it.
Sets normally come in black, but are available in any color.
