Your basic all leather apparel. Finely crafted from tanned brahmin hide.”— Fallout 2 In-game description
This leather armor is based on pre-War armor designed for motorcycle riding, football, and other dangerous contact sports. It is likely that the simple construction techniques required to produce armor of this design made it a popular choice following a nuclear disaster. It provides moderate protection, and the light construction makes it easier to dodge attacks or run away while worn. Unfortunately, it provides little to no protection against explosions or plasma attacks.
Leather armor is a lightweight body armor made from tanned brahmin hide, offering protection from firearms and melee damage.
