    "A one-piece garment providing protection for the whole body against the cold, wet, etc."

    That's all well and good, until you look at the listed etymology:
    "< a first element of uncertain origin + SUIT n.
    The first element is perhaps < POOP n.2 (compare POOPY adj.2), on account either of the unpleasant smell of the suit when worn for a long time, or of the sound produced when excess air is expelled from it."
