Just as in all structures, the points of articulation are the major weak spots of any powered armour no matter how advanced. This goes beyond combat damage and also includes normal stresses and especially fouling due to environmental conditions. It is the latter against which CR1 Jointbags provide superior added protection. Made from light flexible ballistic foil, the CR1 fits over major joints of the armour like a sleeve and is cinched tight on both ends with an integrated thermal memory strip, completely isolating the joint from particles, fluids, or microbes.
A set of four CR1 Jointbags costs 1c.
