Say the party is not in 'combat gear' but are carrying it to where they are going. How long would you say it would take to say put on a suit of standard combat armor?
A combat jumpsuit?
Flak vest.?
Power armor?

Combat armor? If you've got people helping you, probably less than 10 minutes.
Combat jumpsuit? If you've got people helping you, probably less than 5 minutes.
Flak vest? Less than 5 minutes, solo. Back when I was doing my mandatory service in the army, we had our gear on (with cold weather underoos) in less than 5 minutes, provided it was stored properly.
Power armor? Putting on a space suit takes about 30 minutes. Let's say that power armor is half that, about 15 minutes.

In comparison, with help, a pilot preparing to fly the U2 can get his pressure suit on in about 5 minutes.

So it's not a "Get it put on in combat" time frame..

In my opinion, no. Maybe a blast vest or blast helmet - using an action or two to just jam it over your head and not giving a hootin' heck about straps and so on. Heavier armor? I don't think so.
