When most civilizations start to explore, the most challenging areas to explore are those of the lowest temperatures. Suits comprised of fur, large heavy fabrics and chemical gel were used to keep a person warm during long voyages through arctic conditions. As technology evolved over time, so did the suits that allowed for such exploration as many planets were found entirely comprised of extreme low temperature environments. This resulted in companies creating the modern survival gear for arctic conditions, most notably the Arctic Survival Suit.
The Arctic Survival Suit is more than a combination of fabrics and metal. Varium wiring is sewn throughout the suit and into a small generator box on the belts loop, which produces the necessary heat to keep a person warm in extreme conditions. Boots are made with non-conductive metal spikes at the bottom, allowing for better traction in snow and ice and reducing the chance of injury. Gloves can also be magnetically connected to the sleeve once worn, connected through wires to heat the users hand while also able to deactivate the magnets in case of emergencies.
While Arctic Survival Suits require the helmet to function in full, their use has became universal across the galaxy. Exploration companies regularly purchase them in mass quantities when finding and exploring an extremely cold temperature planet. Militaries use them for their soldiers when out on patrol or setting up forward operating bases in arctic regions. Rescue operators have also been known to use them, primarily for those stranded out in extremely cold weather conditions on sides of mountains or glaciers.
