A '''leather suit''' was to be worn by Gordon Freeman in ''Half-Life 2''.''Half-Life 2 Raising the Bar'' (Half-Life_2_Raising_the_Bar proof), page 204

According to Marc Laidlaw, Gordon was to become an agent for a resistance force, possibly in the service of the The G-Man|G-Man, in one of the early incarnations of the sequel's storyline. Along with the other agents, he was to wear a black, leather stealth suit with various devices latched onto it. It would have replaced the Hazardous Environment Suit from the Half-Life|first game but still provide a user interface and a "more sinister" AI voice. Described as a torture suit or practically a straitjacket, the outfit was to resemble "something out of a WikipediaClive Barker|Clive Barker film."http//newrisingmedia.com/all/2012/11/23/interview-with-marc-laidlaw-the-writer-of-half-life.html Interview with Marc Laidlaw on New Rising Media (November 23, 2012)Marc Laidlaw on ReferencesMarc_Laidlaw_emails|the black, leather suit (c. 2016) 

The leather suit was cut along with its associated storyline after the developers realized the success of ''Half-Life'', deciding then to keep the most iconic elements of the title such as the Crowbar and the HEV Suit. The textures files for this version of the suit can be found in the Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak in the folder for the viewmodel of the Flare Gun.
