The explorer hood is a piece of Legion headwear in Fallout: New Vegas.


It appears to be one piece of clothing wrapped around the head and fitted with a small visor from a motorcycle helmet to act as a shade.


  • An explorer hood can be found inside the Techatticup Mine behind a locked (average: 50 Lockpick skill) gate. It is also worn by Legion explorers, which can be found near any Legion forces, especially in Cottonwood Cove.
  • Worn by the Legion explorers


  • Oddly enough, while most head wear adds +1 Perception, despite the fact that the hood is worn by explorers, there are no benefits to Perception or otherwise.
  • The hood cannot be worn with glasses or items that fill the glasses slot like the rebreather.


Much like the eyebot helmet in Fallout 3, the wearer's hair disappears when the item is equipped.
