Welcome to MARS
We're glad you made it.
The hard composite upper torso gives this suit long-term durability. This suit uses higher fidelity boots along with materials that are compatible with a full vacuum environment. Weighing at 143 pounds, the Z-2 interfaces with NASA's advanced Portable Life Support System.
Unlike Other suits, Configuration 2 is a soft suit, which allows astronauts to bend over and grasp objects when fully suited and pressurized. New joint designs allow it to operate at a higher pressure, avoiding the danger of undergoing decompression sickness.
A rear entry suit, the Mark III incoporates a mix of hard and soft suit components. The 8.3 poinds per square inch operating pressure makes it a "zero-rebreathe" suit, meaning astronaut would be able to transition without experiencing rapid depressurization.
