The Army fatigues and dirty Army fatigues and matching helmets are wearable clothing items in Fallout 4.


The Army helmet and dirty Army helmet provide a ballistic protection rating of 10, but offer no energy protection and cannot be upgraded.

Army fatigues provide a Strength bonus of 1 as well as an Agility bonus of 1. They do not take any armor slots, thus can be worn in addition to a full set of armor.

By progressing through the DIA cache quests for the Railroad, given by P.A.M., Tinker Tom will unlock the ability to upgrade the defense of this piece of clothing using ballistic weave. The amount of upgrades available depends on the attained rank for the Armorer perk, where a defense rating of 110 is attainable in both ballistic and energy categories.
