      They are incredibly heavy – usually around 300 pounds once you have all the gear added on. Definitely not something you’d want to wear on Earth. 😉

      Hi Ben!

      Yes if you wear the suit on Earth it is so heavy you have to be held up in it! You cant really stand up on your own inside it. But in space where there is no gravity it is not heavy at all and you can float inside it with no problems at all 🙂
