The Belgian NBC suit is a set of military personal protective equipment designed specifically to provide protection against nuclear, biological and chemical hazards. When worn correctly, NBC suits cover every inch of the human body and provide a buffer that prevents contamination from any of the aforementioned materials. All garments included with the suit are intended to be worn over normal clothing and uniforms and are typically unrestrictive enough to provide for an exceptional range of motion during extended use. That said you may find the following detailed descriptions of each item in the suit helpful when considering a purchase.
The pullover jacket portion of the Belgian NBC suit enlists a number of features that ensure a tight seal. Most notable is the tight, elastic-bound hood, which is connected to the jacket. This hood includes a small opening that will stretch to fit over gas masks and other breathing apparatuses while holding a tight seal. There are also interior and exterior Velcro® straps located at the neckline to provide an adjustable fit. Velcro® straps are also present at the cuffs, perfect for tightening the cuffs over the included gloves. Finally, there is a drawstring at the waistline. You might also be interested in the plethora of pockets – one oversized pocket on the chest (9 inches by 8 inches) is joined by two smaller sleeve pockets (5 inches by 5 inches). These are ideal for storing maps, gas mask filters, batteries, paracord and other survival items that would prove useful in a disaster scenario.
Next up is the pants. The Velcro® adjustable waistline helps keep the pants up, as do the integral suspenders. Like the sleeves on the jacket, the pant legs are adjustable to form a tight seal around the included overboots. Also like the jacket, the pants are equipped with two oversized cargo pockets, each measuring 9 inches by 7.5 inches.
Also included with the Belgian NBC suit is a pair of impermeable rubber gloves that provides maximum protection against contamination. These highly-durable rubber gloves provide excellent protection and are designed to ensure that your hands never come into contact with any undesirable agents.
Finally, we come to the overboots. These oversized rubber boots were designed with combat operations in mind and include a textured sole for enhanced stability. Like all other components of the Belgian NBC suit, the overboots are designed to be worn over your regular footwear and include a drawstring to provide a tight seal around the leg.
