For an overview of leather armor variants in all games, see leather armor.

Leather armor is a piece of armor in Fallout 3.


Leather armor is an enhanced, one long sleeved, black leather jacket. The female version also lacks a left sleeve, and has football shoulder pads in place of the Road Warrior style pauldrons.

It offers significant protection, being comparable to the recon armor and superior to Vault security armor and the raider armor. Effectively, it's the "poor man's" combat armor. It is a typical armor worn by mercenaries and occasionally by raiders.

Behind the scenesEdit

It resembles the outfit worn by Mad Max in Road Warrior, an Easter egg similar to the leather jacket in previous Fallout titles, but without the left sleeve rather than the right.
