The EVA suit (Extra Vehicular Activity Suit) is a new RIG being introduced into Dead Space 3. It is described as being used for space travel and vacuum areas. The suit has a yellow visor, presumably used for UV ray protection. There is also a re-skinned iteration introduced as a promotional suit to be given to anyone who pre-ordered the Limited Edition of Dead Space 3 known as the 'First Contact' Suit.
The suit is a white and grey jumpsuit with a grayish-black helmet. The suit is noticeably padded, and has little armor plating compared to most suits. In addition to having the standard blue slits, the helmet opens up a gold-plated visor when entering a vacuum, likely made to diminish the damage made by infrared radiation from stars. Like the suits from Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3, it has thrusters located on its boots and shoulders, and the health monitor is noticeably higher up on the suit's spine than previous RIGs, resembling a beetle shell. Some of the variants of the suit have a helmet that resembles the Standard Engineer RIG's from the first Dead Space.
- Like the Arctic Survival Suit, Isaac has worn this suit as much in promotional trailers and even the demo.
- In Co-Op Carver has what should've been a Deep Dig suit as EVA and vice versa.
- The suit has an USM Eudora emblem on its left shoulder.
- If Isaac wears the suit at the beginning of Chapter 8, the suit will appear damaged with rips in the fabric and dents in the metal. Isaac's face will appear frozen with blood running off his head. This is the only suit that is damaged when he crash lands on Tau Volantis -- any other suit will appear undamaged and Isaac will look normal, but the health is still low and the helmet still malfunctions.
- During the outbreak on the Lunar colony, before entering the souvenir shop, on the shops sign is a cartoon version of the EVA suit with the protective helmet panel covering down.
- Due to the appearance on the lunar colony and within the USM Eudora, it can be assumed that the EVA suit is the most technologically current suit in Dead Space 3 due to the fact that all suits on Tau Volantis are over 200 years old.
