Vault jumpsuits are clothing articles in Fallout: New Vegas, some of which are armored.

Background

Designed specifically for use within vaults, jumpsuits are an inexpensive, easily produced solution to the age-old problem of clothing large numbers of people while maintaining a modicum of comfort and utility. Within the Vaults, they are also meant to reduce tension by providing every dweller with the same type of clothes, regardless of their standing. Marketed as a fashionable, comfortable design,[1] Before the War, they were an instantly recognizable symbol of both Vaults and the corporation behind them, featuring the iconic blue-and-yellow color scheme. The corporation deliberately exploited the recognizability, with the company mascot, Vault Boy, sporting a set of rubber coveralls, and introducing awards named after the jumpsuit, such as the Pressed Vault Suit Award for preparedness, all to get people used to the mandated uniformity and planned economy of a Vault.[2]

Once Vaults were activated, all dwellers that managed to enter the Vault would be expected to change into their jumpsuits as soon as possible.[3] However, delays could happen: As Vault suits are designed with biometric identification systems in addition to the big, bold Vault number on the back, and discrepancies in scans would delay issuance of a suit.[4] To accommodate the influx, Vaults had a stock of jumpsuits on hand, shipped ahead of time in vacuum-sealed packages, ten per box.[5] Worn-out or damaged suits would be replaced using existing stocks and later manufactured using jumpsuit extruders installed in every Vault (though some were designed to fail, as part of the Vault experiment).[6] Vault-Tec also supplied the design to the Enclave, for use within its civilian facilities, such as the presidential rig.[7]

Regardless of generation, jumpsuits proved to be a rugged, durable piece of equipment that could be readily accessorized. Vault dwellers commonly wore them together with a variety of equipment according to their job: Durable lab coats with scientific equipment,[8] stripped-down versions for maintenance work,[9] and body armor and protective helmets for security personnel.[10][11] Dwellers who ventured into the wasteland commonly modified their suits with a variety of improvised armor or improved linings.[12][13]

Characteristics

This piece of apparel was the required clothing for every Vault and comprises a light blue jumpsuit with a yellow line around the front of the neck and down the front. It does not have a Damage Threshold, but provides a bonus of +2 to Speech and Melee Weapons and can be repaired with any other Vault jumpsuits.

Notes

  • The Vault Boy in Fallout: New Vegas wears a Vault 21 jumpsuit. This is similar to how he wore a Vault 101 jumpsuit in Fallout 3.
  • Most Vault jumpsuits can be used to repair other Vault jumpsuits, however, they are not universally compatible. If one has the Jury Rigging perk, these can be used in repairing light armor.
  • Fallout: New Vegas also includes all varieties of Vault jumpsuits from Fallout 3. The jumpsuits use the same formid as in Fallout 3, but cannot be obtained in-game without the use of console commands.
  • On the Vault 3 jumpsuit, the number 3 on the collar appears mirrored. The Vault 3 utility jumpsuit also appears this way.
  • On the Vault 34 jumpsuit, the number 34 on the collar is upside down.
  • The Boomers wear a modified version of the Vault 34 jumpsuit, with an airman's coat worn over it and the number 34 stitched on the back of the jacket. Despite this, the number 34 is not present on the collars of Boomer outfits.
  • The Vault 11 jumpsuit provides a DR of 1, unlike the other Vault jumpsuits that do not have either DT or DR.
  • The Vault 24 jumpsuit is mentioned in the list of clothing in the Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide but is not seen anywhere else in the book.
  • 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 and Vault 24 jumpsuits cannot be sold to Sarah Weintraub as part of the unmarked quest Suits You, Sarah.
