Each uniform has four types of Armor: Light, Medium, Heavy, and Bio. Each armor type is reflected in the appearance of each uniform.
Light - Consists of a lightweight Level IIa tactical vest capable of stopping low-powered pistol rounds and is rounded out with the standard soft-soled rubber boots, Nomex balaclava, and Nomex/Kevlar gloves
Medium - This camo uniform consists of a Level II waist-length tactical vest capable of stopping up to 40. caliber pistol rounds and 9mm small arms fire, this is RAINBOW's standard gears, and also includes boots and Nomex/Kevlar gloves.
Heavy - This bulky camo uniform is made of Level III body armor, camo boots and Nomex/Kevlar gloves. It is slightly hotter and heavier than the other camo uniforms, but has a lot more protection and is capable of stopping most small arms fire except those from the higher powered rifles.
Bio - This Specially designed combat biosuit combines a Level IIa tactical vest with a full-body Level IV biohazard containment suit. Though its joints are specially reinforced, operatives wearing this suit in combat situations must exercise extreme caution lest their suit integrity is compromised.
