Leather jacket is a piece of armor in Fallout.
A very stylish pre-War black, heavy leather jacket. This jacket is an ill choice to wear in the scorching sun of the desert and one of the arms has been torn off.
Apart from being the starter armor, it can also be used to recruit Dogmeat in Junktown.
Behind the scenes
- ↑ Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.5-18: "What’s the point of wearing armor if you can’t look good? The Leather Jacket is a toned down version of Leather Armor, providing minimal protection while not sacrificing any dodging capability. Stylish, too. Unfortunately, poor ventilation and the black leather make this a very hot armor to wear under the scorching desert sun."
- ↑ Fallout 2 Official Strategies & Secrets p.64: "The hip Leather Jacket is a relic from the before-times. It has only one sleeve left, but it makes up in style what it makes lacks in protection."
