- Scuba set, any breathing set that is carried entirely by an underwater diver and provides the diver with breathing gas at the ambient pressure
- Rebreather, a breathing apparatus that absorbs the carbon dioxide and adds oxygen to a user's exhaled breath, allowing unused oxygen and diluent (if present) to be recycled
- Surface supplied diving equipment (SSDE), diving equipment supplied with breathing gas using a diver's umbilical or airline from the surface, such as a boat or platform
- Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), used out of water, worn by rescue workers, firefighters and others in contaminated, toxic or hypoxic atmospheres
- Spacesuit, a garment worn to keep a human alive in the harsh environment of outer space, primarily the vacuum and temperature extremes
