“This armor used to belong to one of those desert-crazy priests. Said wearing it made him bulletproof. Course, that didn't stand up to a little testing. But damn if it wasn't a gloriously fun time.”— Everett
The Leather Rebel is a variant of raider commando armor. Everett describes the armor as having been worn by a desert priest who said the armor was bulletproof, a theory which was proven false when put to the test. Said experiment was described by Everett as "a gloriously fun time".
