Gecko-backed leather armor is a piece of light armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This is leather armor with fire, golden and green gecko hides added as backing. The hide addition provides a significant increase to general damage protection and also gives the wearer improved resistance against fire, radiation and poison.

It provides a Damage Threshold of 10 as well as a 15 points of resistance to fire, poison, and radiation. The Damage Threshold of this armor is +4 to that of regular leather armor.

Unlike the other gecko-backed armor types, there is no difference in weight between regular and gecko backed leather armor. Similar to the gecko-backed armor introduced in Honest Hearts, its appearance is unchanged from the original armor type.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

This armor must be crafted by the player character. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Originally, when the armor was created it started at 100% condition. After a patch and the Old World Blues add-on, its condition is dependent on that of the armor used to make it.
