The Brotherhood of Steel uniform, is comprised of three sets of standardized clothing that can be found and obtained within the Commonwealth, in Fallout 4.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Underarmor

Designed from the ground up for use in conjunction with the West-Tek power armor frame, the next generation underarmor is a form-fitting suit designed for maximum comfort and utility while operating the armor. Although it (or the hood) is not a requirement for operating the armor, it makes long-term use more comfortable and reduces chafing. The hard points and attachments on the suit also improve performance, interfacing directly with the armor's systems. The suit wasn't designed for use outside of armor: It features only two pockets on the hips for documentation and maps and a simple flap over the crotch. Its comfort and lack of bulk allow the operator to combine it with a variety of tactical gear and protection, for example, combat armor.[2][3]

The Brotherhood employs pre-War underarmor not just in its intended purpose, for use by troops equipped with suits of power armor, but as a general purpose uniform. Typically combined with customized standard combat armor, the uniform is issued in three types: Olive drab for soldiers, orange and white for Knights, and jet black for officers of the Brotherhood. Non-standard customizations are popular: Lancers usually combine their uniform with a bomber jacket, while Elder Arthur Maxson wears his with an armored battlecoat.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This particular uniform comes in three different colors, which an orange and gray variant, an olive and black variant, and then the officer's uniform, which can be found on certain named Paladins, such as Paladin Brandis, and is seen to be jet black in color. The orange uniforms in turn are worn by recon, Knights and airship crew, while the gray variant appears to be used by many of the ground troops, especially those utilizing Brotherhood of Steel combat armor.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Most members of the Brotherhood of Steel are wearing some variant of this clothing.
  • The orange variant of the uniform, is consistently sold and restocked by Proctor Teagan.
