One-Piece Suits

One-piece suits were commonly used by a Shayetet 13 and by law enforcement SF units. However, in recent years, most one-piece suits were replaced by modern two-piece combat uniforms.

The suits are typically made from fire-retardant materials and are easy to fit over existing clothing or various types of under-garments.
