Gecko-backed leather armor is a piece of light armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.


This leather armor has been backed with the hides of fire, golden and green geckos. The hides provide a +15% resistance to fire, radiation and poison, respectively.

It provides a damage threshold of 10 as well as a 15 points of resistance to fire, poison, and radiation. The damage threshold of this armor is 4 above that of regular leather armor.

Unlike the other gecko-backed armor types, there is no difference in weight between regular and gecko backed leather armor.

  • Gecko-backed leather armor cannot be found naturally; it must be crafted by the player at a campfire or hotplate.


  • Originally, when the armor was created it started at 100% condition. After a patch and the Old World Blues add-on, its condition is dependent on that of the armor used to make it.
