The new “Boeing Blue” spacesuits were designed to provide crew members with functionality, comfort and protection.The full Boeing Blue spacesuit weighs roughly 9 kg with all accessories, about 5 kg lighter than the suits worn by Space Shuttle astronauts.

The material used in their construction is lighter and new “joint patterns” have been engineered to facilitate more nimble movement.
