Dad's wasteland outfit is a piece of clothing in Fallout 3.


Dad's wasteland outfit is the vault jumpsuit James is wearing just after exiting the Tranquility Lane lounger in Vault 112. It is identical to the Vault 101 utility jumpsuit except that the suit has black boots instead of sneakers, a black undershirt opposed to a white one, and a few more stains. It can be repaired with vault jumpsuits, the Vault 101 utility jumpsuit, and the modified utility jumpsuit.


One way to acquire this item is to reverse-pickpocket James either while he is talking with Doctor Li, or while he is standing in the Jefferson Memorial rotunda.

Another way is by standing directly in front of the airlock door in the memorial rotunda right after James' death, directly in front of his body. It can be accessed by slowly looking around until "Search Dad" comes into view. This only works if his body has fallen close to the door. It can also be done with Colonel Autumn, who at the time will have 10mm rounds, his uniform, and his pistol.


  • Despite Dad's wasteland outfit being almost visually identical to a Vault 101 utility jumpsuit, and carrying the same bonuses, it weighs 20 lbs, which is a little less than a suit of combat armor, and as much as recon armor.
  • The outfit exists in the game files for Fallout: New Vegas as legacy content.
  • Despite not being able to obtain the suit legitimately, a female model exists for it.
