This page is about the Wasteland outfits as they appear in Fallout 3. For the Wasteland outfits as they appear in Fallout: New Vegas, see Wasteland outfit.

Wasteland Outfits are common outfits for wastelanders in Fallout 3.


Crudely made, they provide only the most basic protection and are easy to come by as they can be bought from several traders, can be found on many corpses or inside several homes throughout the Capital Wasteland.

Wasteland outfits can be repaired with Brahmin-skin Outfit, Wasteland settler outfit, Wasteland wanderer outfit, Wasteland doctor fatigues, Wasteland surgeon outfit and roving trader outfit. The matching headwear can only be repaired with other copies of the respective model.



Brahmin-skin outfit

A dirty off-white in color (grey for the coveralls), the brahmin-skin outfit consists of a crudely-stitched pair of coverall trousers and a patched shirt. They appear to have received only the most rudimentary treatment in tanning and tailoring. It is used by the poorest of wastelanders.

Wasteland settler outfit

The Wasteland settler outfit consists of a green shirt and a pair of grey-brown trousers. It is used by the poorest of wastelanders.

Wasteland wanderer outfit

The Wasteland wanderer outfit is plain clothing with a hood. It is a unisex outfit; the male version looks exactly like the female. It is used by the "middle class" wastelanders.

Variants with different bonuses


Ballcap with glasses

A ballcap which comes with a pair of glasses. This cannot be looted or worn in Fallout 3. It can be found and worn in Fallout: New Vegas, but does not count as glasses when considering the Four Eyes trait. The cap can be found on random wastelanders and occasionally on Traveling merchants.

Biker goggles

Biker goggles are made up of two clear glass lenses and are kept over the eyes with a leather strap.

Biker goggles are often found on raiders and wastelanders. They can also be bought readily from merchants that specialize in selling general goods(such as Moira Brown) and clothing(such as Crow). They very often can be easily obtained in perfect condition when purchased from vendors.

Stormchaser hat

The stormchaser hat is a very common article of clothing sold randomly by most merchants, and worn by many wastelanders. When purchased from a vendor a stormchaser hat will usually be in perfect condition. It can also be combined with eyewear.

Variants with different stats


It seems that the AG +1 is caused by it being very light and non-restrictive. It also seems that the EN +1 is caused by all that the wastelanders have to "endure" to live in the Capital Wasteland.


  • When wearing the stormchaser hat with another in your inventory trying to wear the second will result in no change of hat, but when playing with the third person camera angle or using V.A.T.S your character will not have a head or any visible headgear on (glitch disappears when any equipment is changed).
