Raider armor is a name that refers to various types of armor worn by raiders.

Note that some raiders, like the Khans, wear typical leather armor and other regular types of armor. This article covers types of armor that are worn only (or mostly) by raiders.

Variants

Body armor

Raider badlands armor

Raider Armor
Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas

A bandolier is draped across the front of the top of a pair of tan overalls and on the left knee there appears to be some sort of colander being used as a knee pad. The outfit also includes shorts made from either leather or some variety of canvas-like material. A screwdriver is secured near one boot, presumably to be used as a makeshift boot knife, despite the fact its only function is for aesthetic value. It's also feasible that it is the screwdriver used by the player when picking a lock.

It appears to employ a tire of some kind as the shoulder pad and has a pair of roman sandals as footwear. Around the waist appears to be a mattress or quilt for a bed, and the back of it is a bit burnt. If you look on the right forearm there is the Arclight Helmet nailed into the leathery sleeve, perhaps used as guard, and the shins are possibly the remainder of baseball shin guards.

Two severed hands are on the waist of the armor. It appears to be made out of stiff leather, and lacks any sort of shirt.

If you pay close attention to an opponent using melee or unarmed attacks, their health will go down slightly with every hit, implying that the spikes on the armor hurt them when they attack despite not being in a suitable position to damage an attacker.

Helmets

Raider arclight helmet

Raider Arclight Helmet
Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas

The raider arclight helmet resembles a welding mask. Interestingly, this item does flatten the character's hair as if they were wearing a normal helmet.

The raider blastmaster helmet is the headwear component of Raider Blastmaster Armor, comprised of a fireman's helmet worn on top of a gas mask and possibly a fire-retardant covering.

Raider wastehound helmet

Raider Wastehound Helmet
Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas

The Raider Wastehound Helmet appears to be constructed of several pieces of heavy burlap crudely stitched together. It also includes eye protection and tufts of hair. There are some visual differences between gender versions of the item, as the female version's hair patches go in a straight line down the middle of the skull, similar to a mohawk, whereas the male version consists of three tufts; two on the sides and one on top.

Raider psycho-tic helmet

Raider Psycho-Tic Helmet
Gameplay articles: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas

The raider psycho-tic helmet could be described as a leather skull cap with goggles and handlebars jutting out of the sides of the head.

Behind the scenes

In the movie Mad Max 3, Max is hired by Auntie Entity (played by Tina Turner) to "take care of" the sub-chief Masterblaster. As an obvious nod, these armors strongly resemble that worn by various "less scrupulous" characters in the Mad Max trilogy.
