A while back I was in the X16 lab [the underground one, I think] and I wondered if there were NV goggles so I checked the manual and pressed N. There you go! I looked into it a bit more and saw some of the advanced suits gave you NV attachments as part of the suits. But I was just wearing the 15k ruble STALKER suit, without any attachments. I looked in my inventory and saw nothing that looked like a NV gadget. What gives?
only certain outfits give you the nv goggles, as you're wearing nothing much more than a padded parka i'd say you don't have the option at the mo. find one of the freedom/duty outfits and i should think that would have some.
NV is part of the suits. you can not see it in your invintory or take it on or off a suit. the more advanced suits have it built in, you will not see it (there is no head gear) just press N and see if the suit you are wearing has it.
