The Institute division head coat is a piece of clothing in Fallout 4, worn by scientists in the Institute.


The Institute division head coat provides no Damage Resistance, but adds a bonus of 1 to Intelligence and 1 to Perception. It comes in five distinct variations according to which department the scientist who is wearing it is assigned to: black for Synth Retention Bureau, blue for Advanced Systems, green for BioScience, yellow in Engineering, and orange is the color for personnel unassigned to a department/Robotics.

The variant for each department head has prominent colors displayed across the front resembling a toga.


  • Institute lab coat
  • Virgil wears a unique, shredded orange institute lab coat named 'Institute' only attainable through console commands, and only equipped by super mutants.


  • Worn by various division heads, and can be pick pocketed for the coats.
  • The orange variant can be found next to Father's lab coat in his office after the completion of Nuclear Family and informing Allie Filmore of Father's death. This is intentional, as the Director is the head of all divisions.
