The lightweight leather armor is a piece of armor in Fallout: New Vegas.


This suit of leather armor has been hand-modified to reduce its overall weight by 5 pounds while improving its ability to protect, having two more DT than standard leather armor.

Both the male and female armors differ in appearance from the regular leather armor in that they lack the shoulder pads.



Name DT WG Durability Value Armor class Effects
Leather armor 6 15 150 160 Light armor None
Lightweight leather armor Courier's Stash 8 10 150 160 Light armor None


Originally, the only way to acquire this armor was by redeeming the code that came with the pre-order exclusive Caravan Pack. It can now also be acquired by purchasing the add-on Courier's Stash.


  • If examined closely in the proper lighting, the areas where the shoulder pads would rest can be seen.
  • Due to the size of the sleeve, when equipping weapons like boxing tape and boxing gloves, it will look like the right hand is disconnected from the body.

Behind the scenes

This armor more closely resembles the one-armed leather jacket used by Max in Mad Max: The Road Warrior than normal leather armor.
