Kelvin in an HAZMAT suit. ("Live Together, Die Alone")
A HAZMAT suit is an overall garment designed to protect the wearer from hazardous materials. HAZMAT is an abbreviation for "Hazardous Materials", a US-specific term, and is elsewhere commonly termed "Dangerous Goods". Typically suits are worn with several other protective layers underneath, tape on the seals, and communications and medical monitoring devices inside. Usually the suits must undergo an involved decontamination procedure before the user exits the suit after use.

These procedures were not explicitly depicted in Lost.

Swan station occupant Kelvin Inman wore a HAZMAT suit when he ventured outside the station, including his initial rescue of the shipwrecked Desmond from the beach. Later, Desmond observed that the HAZMAT suit Kelvin is donning is compromised with a large tear in the thigh, so he deduced that the concept of a outdoor pathogen, i.e. the sickness, was simply a ruse. He then decided to follow Kelvin outdoors unprotected in his normal clothing. The resulting confrontation resulted in the accidental death of Kelvin, and a system failure back at the Swan. Despite his conclusion that the sickness was fake, Desmond continued to take the vaccine CR 4-81516-23 42, and was surprised when he first met Locke, who told him that no one from the survivors of Flight 815 was sick.
