PAS-8 "Predator" Body Armor:
The Stealthy Predator adds a realm of deadliness into defense, providing a surprisingly agile armor for it's weight, and about stretches the limits of normal body armors; They're powered if they're better than the Predator. Definitely a body armor for stronger individuals, and considering the Elven makeup of Kalyaran's species, tall, relatively thin people fit best in these body armors; They are available in male and female versions, and also a slightly smaller version designed to better accommodate shorter people of either sex.
The armor has highly advanced features one would normally only expect on power armor, and because of the highly advanced materials used in construction, is incredibly easy to move in and an excellent choice in armor for anyone planning to enter a combat situation that involves high energy weaponry.
This armor is already in production and for sale on Rifts Earth.
