The default outfit worn by the player character, and his fellow inmates. Wearing anything other than this or the Plated/Cushioned/Padded versions of the outfit will make your heat rise gradually, and wearing nothing will make your heat rise very quickly.If you get knocked out and you were not wearing anything or wearing something else you will wake up with the normal outfit. Can be upgraded into Plated Inmate Outfit or Cushioned Inmate Outfit or Padded Inmate Outfit.
In The Escapists 2 sprite of the armored outfit on player never changes. It will appear orange even if the default inmate outfit of the prison is different, for example the brown outfits in H.M.P. Offshore or K.A.P.O.W. Camp.
