|For an overview of bandanas, see Bandana.|
If acquired earlier on in the game, the bandana can be used as rather effective headgear, and even combined with eye wear (like sunglasses) to offer slightly more DR. The +1 bonus to Perception can also help the player spot enemies from a further distance.
The bandana will also never deteriorate. Once at 100%, it remains at 100% condition throughout the entire game, no matter how long it is worn.
Bandanas are quite rare in the Capital Wasteland. The plain bandana can be found on Ryan Brigg in the Jury Street Metro station, from Robert of The Family in Meresti Metro station, and randomly from the generic Megaton settlers in Megaton.
