The set consists of two pieces, the body armor and helmet. Like all power armor, Power Armor Training is required to equip it. It provides +1 Strength and -1 Agility; one less Strength bonus and Agility penalty than the T-45d power armor. There is also a 5% increase to radiation resistance. Enclave power armor is also slightly more durable than standard T-45d power armor.
Dialogue from some of the Brotherhood of Steelscribes suggests that the Enclave's power armor is significantly more advanced than the Brotherhood's, with Brotherhood paladins expressing concern that their standard bullets may not even be able to penetrate it. They also refer to it as "black devil" power armor.
