The shadesuit is an enhanced version of the bodysuit. The colour of the shadesuit seems to be a weird mottling of blacks, greys, blues and purples, but closer inspection reveals that these colours shift with the way light hits the suit. The garment shifts its shades and colours to approximate the light and darkness around it, providing the wearer of the shadesuit with a limited chameleon ability when in shadow. In a shadowy or poorly lit area, the wearer of the shadesuit receives a +2 circumstance bonus to any Hide skill checks. The shadesuit cannot mimic colours other than black, grey, blue and purple, however, making it useless as camouflage in places like a brightly lit meadow. Additionally, the silk material of a shadesuit is slick to the touch, and fits so tightly to the wearer’s skin that any grapple attempts against him suffer a 1 penalty on the attack roll.
Shadesuit: 350 gp; 2 lb.
