Wastelander's chest piece
One of the many, many variants of leather armor finely crafted from tanned brahmin hide. The basic variant consists of two axillary and shoulder protectors. A bandoleer with three pockets holds up a midriff carry belt and a waist utility belt with a carry pouch, five spare bullets, and three more ammunition pouches on the back. It also has a set of protective knee and elbow pads and guards for the forearms and shins.
Leather armor consists of five different pieces that make up the entire set, one for each limb, and as well as a torso piece. They can be worn over thin clothing with ease, and can be modified with standard armor mods, although only material mods change the armor's appearance. Leather armor is tilted more toward protection against energy weapons although it does protect against ballistic based weaponry.
Leather armor provides benefits to players who prefer stealth, since it offers a "Shadowed" upgrade, which makes the player harder to see in the dark, and it is lightweight, which, according to the in-game tips, also benefits stealth. Although all these leather armor variants are post-War creations, they are usually found sporadically and need to be purchased or looted. Of course, one may choose to opt for the leather coat.
The Wastelander's chest piece is a part of the wastelander's set, giving a +1 to Agility and Perception. Useful at all times, especially since it comes with a top-level material mod and a BioCommMesh.
