Space suits are used by the crew for extra-vehicular activity.
Several deckhands and Chief Tyrol wear space suits as they explore a damaged water storage area aboard Galactica (Water). The suits are also seen in use while crewmembers work on deck, inside the port flight pod, as Colonial Heavy 798 lands to offload its passengers for Galactica's decommissioning ceremony (Miniseries, Night 1).
The suits differ from the flight suits worn by Viper and Raptor pilots in that the white suits were designed for maintenance and repairs outside the ship, rather than for survival after ejection from a fighter.
