They look like the newer level B suits I think, they have a large heavy duty zipper that runs from shoulder to shoulder on your back as opposed to the zipper up the front from groin to throat

MT-94 Lion suits. It's the go suit for most companies and is substantially more abrasion resistant and more durable than level A's. Hazmat Co 1 still has level A's for full encapselation work. Been around since about 2011

+ 1 on more abrasion resistant, differnt material than the older plastic style, they also seem more flexible than the old ones. Only downside with them is you need help removing them with the rear shoulder to shoulder zipper where as the old style had that zipper in the front and you could remove the suit on your own if it was necessary
