The PS5-M "Universal Protection" is an armour that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all other canon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

A wonderful protective suit for the Zone. Stalkers appreciate it because it combines excellent anomaly-proof and bullet-proof qualities. It includes the PSZ-9d suit, a closed cycle breathing system and an integrated system of anomalous field suppression. It provides quality bullet and splinter protection.
- Inventory description


  • A good suit that the player may not have early access to.
  • There are opportunities to obtain better and lighter suits relatively early in the game, such as the SEVA suit or the SSP-99M suit, the latter being around 4 kg lighter and with higher specifications.
  • This suit is basically a straight upgrade to SEVA suit in Duty colors.
