This item is more akin to bone armor than anything else:
Surgeon Scrubs VS. Bone Armor
- Projectile: 25% / 25%
- Melee: 30% / 40%
- Bite: 8% / 13%
- Radiation: 15% / 4%
- Cold: 8% / None.
- Explosion: 5% / 7%
- Waterproof: Yes. / No.
- Craft Cost: 60 Cloth, 3 Sewing Kits. / 15 Cloth, 150 Bone Frags.
- Workbench: Tier 1. / Tier 0.
So if you switch from bone armor to the scrubs, you gain 11% more rad resist, 8% cold resist, and waterproof which is very useful for oil rig. All you're losing is 10% melee protection, 5% bite (animals), and 2% explosive damage for it.
At 15% radiation resistance, it's no Hazmat Suit (50% Radiation Resistance), but at least you can access far more areas than bone armor. Bone armor is very restrictive in regards to monuments & power substations, but you do need a level 1 bench to start crafting the surgeon scrubs.
Hope this helps someone, good luck everyone.
