Jumpsuit, One-piece Garments

Jumpsuit initially referred to the serviceable one-piece garments used by parachutes as well as skydivers, but has appear to be used as a general term for any one-piece of clothing with sleeves and legs.


The original skydiver’s jumpsuit was simple garments intended to insulate the body from the icy of high altitude and reduce risk of covering significant handle and grip. Nowadays, however, the piece of clothing has found new use by:

Pilots and drivers

Aviators and astronauts, who occasionally wear insulated, fireproof jumpsuit or flight suits where other type of clothing can potentially float or flutter about in zero gravity or all through high-G maneuvers.

Drivers in motor race, who wear jumpsuit for safety against flames and abrasion.


Skiers, who wear insulate jumpsuit or ski suit to protect them from frosty Spirited skiers and speed skaters, who dress in skin-tight jumpsuit to give freedom of movement while minimizing atmosphere resistance.


The jumpsuit's easy one-piece design also make it a practical piece of clothing for tradesmen, as cleaners, auto technicalities as well as plumbers, who frequently wear looser-fitting jumpsuit, or coveralls, wherever they need a better defensive garment.
