The Leather Rebel is a unique piece of armor in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.

Background[edit | edit source]

Everett describes the armor as having been worn by a priest who said the armor was bulletproof, a theory which was proven false when put to the test. Said experiment was described by Everett as "a gloriously fun time".[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Leather Rebel is a unique variant of raider commando armor and provides a damage resistance of 30, while also increasing Charisma by 1. It can be repaired with leather armor.

A leather apron, or the remains thereof, attached with straps. A large leather and metal pauldron over the left shoulder and arm. Two large double belts, attached to the bottom belt is a pouch hanging over the thigh. The pants are of a dark leather, the knees and back of knees are padded. Covering the shins are metal guards held on by leather straps. Both leather boots extend to the knees.

Locations[edit | edit source]

The Leather Rebel can be obtained by collecting 70 steel ingots for Foreman Everett.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

This armor is a reference to the Judas Priest song "Leather Rebel". Specifically, the claim that the armor was previously owned by a priest who claimed to be bulletproof. The claim of bullet proof is in the fifth verse while the "Priest" is the band name.

    Everett: "Guess you earned this. Used to belong to a desert priest. Said wearing it made him bulletproof. Course, that didn't stand up to a little testing. But damn if it wasn't a gloriously fun time."
