The sheriff's duster and sheriff's hat are pieces of clothing in Fallout: New Vegas.


Neither article has a Damage Threshold, so they cannot be repaired by merchants. Repair is only possible through the Jury Rigging perk.



The outfit can be obtained from the town of Primm, inside the Sheriff's office. The duster will disappear after My Kind of Town.

  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 Sometimes, when worn with a set of T-51b power armor in the inventory, the game will act as if the T-51b power armor is equipped, providing the same stat bonuses and damage resistance. This can happen even without power armor training. Whether this is a bug with the T-51b power armor or the sheriff's duster is unclear. [verified]
