Mars suits

The modern space suits used by NASA to land on the Moon are pressurized. These puffy suits are good only for working in a vacuum like Moon which doesn't have an atmosphere. It is very difficult to walk or preform complex tasks in them, a vital feature for any Mars suit. If even a small hole is poked through the suit all the oxygen flies out of the suit and the wearer suffocates. It's like wearing a big balloon. All this makes it an unpractical suit for Mars mission. Recently a non puffy suit has been developed. Mars has an atmosphere that is 10 times smaller than Earth's, even that is enough to not use a pressurized suit. This new suit is just like a diver's suit but without flippers. It is a skin tight covering plus oxygen tanks and few life support systems. Here is a picture.
