|For an overview of metal armor variants in all games, see metal armor.|
This armor can be obtained by reverse pickpocketing Toshiro Kago with a stronger set of armor, or by taking it off of him should he die.
This is one of the only sets of armor (the other being Elder Lyons' robe) that almost entirely covers the Lone Wanderer's left hand and Pip-Boy 3000, but only appears this way on the male version; however, the Pip-Boy can still be properly accessed despite it being covered up.
Behind the scenes
The emblem emblazoned upon this set of armor is the "wood sorrel" mon, a popular mon that Toshiro Kago chose for his name at the beginning of the Tokugawa shogunate, since the use of mon spread to all classes only during this period.
