This form of body armor was used by the Rebel Alliance,especially between the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Hoth. The design of the helmet was similar to that of clone trooper armor, the Clone paratrooper variant in particular.
It was used by Able and his troops when they boarded and hijacked an Imperial cargo ship. When they rescued Janek Sunber from an Imperial space station, Luke Skywalker and Deena Shan wore this armor, though without the helmets.
