The Philadelphia Experiment (1984)

One of our occasional "Not Really a Space suit but..."
It's been a few years since I last saw The Philadelphia Experiment but if memory serves this was an electrical insulation suit for surviving the temporal vortex thingy at the end of the movie.  I quite like it and am somewhat surprised it didn't pop up after as a actual spacesuit.  Maybe you all know different.

I think the helmet is familiar and looks to be one of the ones seen in Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Star Wars New Hope and Gets Smart.  I believe it started life in Way..Way Out (1966)  If it is the same then this would be the most recent appearance.

  1. Another one that would get my vote for "Not Really a Space suit but..." would be the liquid breathing suit from the Abyss,it certainly looks more spacesuit than diving suit,fl_progressive,q_80,w_636/18xhrm2pqufsngif.gif
