The Washington Post has an article about the space suits being developed by SpaceX and Boeing for use on their commercial space vehicles, which may start ferrying passengers to the International Space Station as early as 2019—if they can get a bit better at making their deadlines, maybe. Anyway, both companies have come up with a fairly slender, form-fitting design, with a narrower helmet than the classic NASA dome; they're basically just to protect passengers from depressurization: "this gear is specifically not intended for spacewalks, so it doesn’t need to provide the same bulky protection from dust and debris, or temperature fluctuation."
