He can have that if you want, but more common practice is to wear extra radiation/debris protective coverall over regular vaccsuit if needed - I think we specified those in the drive room equipment lockers.

Hard suits are usually the "mini-spacecraft" kind for long duration construction work in space, where the operator is actually sitting down for comfort and "arms" are waldoes rather than sleeves.

I can see the usefulness of what you suggest, but they aren't that common - probably old combat armor converted.
