Vault jumpsuits are articles of clothing in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background

Main article: Vault jumpsuit

A rugged jumpsuit variant designed for heavy use among Vault-Tec machinery and infrastructure. Rather than extruded rubber, the suit uses a combination of denim and natural leather,[1][2][3] combined to create a particularly rugged piece of equipment. The suit is less form fitting than other jumpsuit variants, but provides a good deal of comfort. Like other versions, it's a single-piece uniform, with a zipper down the front, leather armguards and spacious pockets on the waist and thighs. Reinforced elbows and knees give it extra durability under heavy use, with the interface port over the left breast used for a variety of purposes. Depending on the job assignment, the jumpsuit is designed to accommodate a variety of belts, including simple leather bands for children, rugged multi-purpose belts for general use and specialized equipment for utility, lab and security work.[4][Non-game 1]

Characteristics

All jumpsuits with the exception of those from Vault 11 have no Damage Threshold, but provide a bonus of +2 to Speech and Melee Weapons and can be repaired with other vault jumpsuits. The Vault 11 variant has a DR of 1. The Vault 3 utility jumpsuit adds +5 to both Lockpick and Repair.

Notes

  • The Vault Boy in Fallout: New Vegas wears a Vault 21 jumpsuit.
  • Most Vault jumpsuits can be used to repair other vault jumpsuits but they are not universally compatible. If one has the Jury Rigging perk, these can be used in repairing light armor.
  • On the Vault 3 jumpsuit and utility jumpsuit, the number 3 on the collar is mirrored. On the Vault 34 jumpsuit, the number on the collar is upside down.
  • Boomer jumpsuits, Boomer flightsuits, and Janet's Boomer outfit include vault jumpsuits. The number 34 is not present on the collars of Boomer outfits.
  • The Vault 34 security armor and vault lab uniform consist of armor/labcoat worn over a vault jumpsuit.
  • If the Courier is a male, Doc Mitchell says that the Vault 21 jumpsuit belongs to him, but if the Courier is a female, he says that the jumpsuit belonged to his wife.
  • Vault 21 jumpsuits cannot be sold to Sarah Weintraub as part of the unmarked quest Suits You, Sarah.

Non-canon

  1. Question: "I was reading up on New Vegas cut content and came across 'Vault 24', but apparently no plans or content beyond a jumpsuit exist for it in game files. Was there ever a concept planned for it? If not, what sort of concept would you have liked to explore?"
    Joshua Sawyer: "I don’t believe so. I think we may have generated a few additional vault suits from vaults that we never intended to be in the game, but I can’t remember why. Maybe as part of a collection quest for Sarah Weintraub?"

Non-game

  1. Conceptual Design: "The Vault Suit
    Designing, or redesigning the vault suit meant adhering to canon, and updating the textures and tactile feel for the detail we can achieve now in games. I opted for a more durable denim like material, something quintessentially American and, suited to carrying out vault tasks involving heavy machinery and crawling through metal pipes.
    Overall, the vault suit seems to represent an Everyman/Everywoman uniform of conformity, and a blank canvas for accessorizing once the wearer had escaped into the harsh environment of the wasteland. Preserving the retro 50’s flavor seemed to support this, and I wanted the suit to feel at home in a classic 50’s sci-fi film like Forbidden Planet. The reinforced elbows and knees seemed to introduce a bit of that flair to the otherwise oppressively Orwellian environment."
