Leather armor is a piece of armor in Fallout 3.


Leather armor is an enhanced, one long sleeved, black leather jacket. The female version also lacks a left sleeve, and has football shoulder pads in place of the Road Warrior style pauldrons.

It offers significant protection, being comparable to the recon armor and superior to Vault security armor and the raider armor. Effectively, it's the "poor man's" combat armor. It is a typical armor for mercenaries.

  • Residents of towns and wastelanders sometimes, but rarely, wear leather armor.

Behind the scenes

It resembles the outfit worn by Mad Max in Road Warrior, an Easter egg similar to the leather jacket in previous Fallout titles.
