Also known as "hazmat" (short for "hazardous materials"), the original S.G.C. hazard suit was mainly yellow with a clear face plate. Lightweight and durable, the suits are easily stored in an S.G. team's off-world gear, and are not difficult to work or run in.

Mark 2 Hazard suit

In recent years the early model suits have been replaced with Stargate mission-tailored suits. This new protective gear is red with a gold face shield, capable of protecting against various kinds of radiation, among other dangerous atmospheric issues. At the back of the head gear is a tube connecting down to an oxygen unit carried like a back pack. The new hazard suits are capable of carrying at least a day's supply of oxygen.
