DATAFILM
The combat zone stocks the largest selection of Datafilm in Night City.  Regardless of whether the ACPA you are piloting is construction, security, police, or if you are just making a fashion statement.  Apparently Datafilm has become so popular in the private sector, that many people who will never get anywhere near a Landmate have taken to wearing them as an alternative to body gloves, sweatsuits, and sports apparel because it hugs the body so incredibly well, better than latex or spandex by far.  Therefore those with the bodies love showing them off with datafilm.


Darafilm, or datasuit as it is also called, this incredibly thin suit is meant to be worn under powered armor, and transmits the wearer's commands to the landmate. Datafilm has an SP of 6. It protects against acids, alkali's and other chemicals, lets sweat escape while repelling water and cushions shock. It is a fabulous invention (in the words of SHIROW himself). Apparently if the wearer is knifed it would hurt a great deal but the blade would not penetrate the datasuit. It's made if the same materials used to coat cyborg and landmate musculature. Data suits come in a variety of colors and pattern and are made by several different companies. Due to the tight fit and variations in height, weight and structure I would imagine that each datasuit is custom made for the specific wearer. You must wear a datasuit to operate a landmate. Cost varies from 200eb to 2000eb depending on manufacturer and design. The suit gives +3 to any ref action made while using a land mate. Available to public.
