Vault jumpsuits are clothing that appear in all Fallout games. However, in Fallout and Fallout 2 they are worn by the player character by default and in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Van Buren, they appear as actual in-game items. In Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, they are not usable by the player character. They appear to be made out of a leather material, the numbers made of polyester and the belt and other components out of aluminum.


Vault 101 Back

Vault jumpsuits are the regulation clothing carried by the vault dwellers of Vault-Tec vaults. They are made of leather, blue with a yellow zipper and the number of the vault is on the back of the suit and on the outside of the collar.

The Secret Vault jumpsuits have no number on the back, nor do the Vault 0 jumpsuits which are a gray color instead of blue. Sometimes, vault dwellers who left a vault tend to be attached to their vault jumpsuit and don't hesitate to reinforce it with shoulder pads and some kind of defensive means, instead of selling it for other clothing.

The Vault City jumpsuit is identical to other jumpsuits, but lacks a number of any sort on the back. First Citizen Joanne Lynette wears a jumpsuit that appears to be hooded. Also, the Enclave citizens in 2241 appear to be wearing vault jumpsuits, also without a number.

The Vault Dweller emerges from Vault 13 clad in one of these. In Fallout 2, the Chosen One must earn the right to wear the jumpsuit of their ancestor, the Vault Dweller, by completing the Temple of Trials. Once this quest is completed the player character's default clothing changes from tribal apparel to the vault jumpsuit, permanently. The Vault Dweller's jumpsuit is regarded as a holy item by the people of Arroyo.


Numbered vault jumpsuitEdit

Vault Jumpsuit

The standard vault jumpsuit. Vault jumpsuits from Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel and Van Buren were depicted as skin-tight, but they were rather roomier in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, possibly indicating a standardized "one size fits all" method of production, supported further in Fallout 4, as some guards can be heard asking the Sole Survivor if the vault suits are one size fits all. Some jumpsuits appear to have different garment cuts for varied sizes.

Child's Vault jumpsuitEdit

The vault utility jumpsuit is a modified version of the standard vault jumpsuit, designed for manual labor and routine repair. The top section is unzipped a little, the vambraces are absent and the sleeves are rolled up. It has no sash on the left shoulder and breast. The outfit features high-top, converse-like, red shoes which is a contrast to its generally grubby appearance.

Armored Vault jumpsuitEdit
