Re: The Complete Guide to Starfleet Style: The TOS Movies Rad Suit

If the suit is intended to protect against radiation, and it is typically worn around the reactor equipment in engineering, then those spaces must be hot (in the radiation sense, not temperature). So apparently Starfleet decided it was more effective to insulate the crew than to shield the equipment. I wonder why.
