Gecko-backed leather armor is a piece of light armor added with the Fallout: New Vegas add-on .
This is leather armor with fire, golden and green gecko hides added as backing. The hide addition provides a significant increase to general damage protection and also gives the wearer improved resistance against fire, radiation and poison.
It provides a
damage threshold of 10 as well as a 15 points of resistance to fire, poison, and radiation. The damage threshold of this armor is 4 above that of regular leather armor.
Unlike the other gecko-backed armor types, there is no difference in weight between regular and gecko backed leather armor.
Like all gecko-backed armor introduced in Honest Hearts, its appearance is unchanged from the original armor type.
This armor must be
crafted by the player. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.
Originally, when the armor was created it started at 100% condition. After a patch and the add-on, its condition is dependent on that of the armor used to make it.
