This armor provides a remarkable amount of DR. In fact, it has the third best DR to Weight ratio in the game, the best being General Jingwei's uniform, then Maple's garb.
This armor is a very suitable subsitute for regular Metal Armor, being that it has the same DR, but the weight is cut in half and has other bonuses. The only bad thing is the health difference.
The effects from the armor are listed as "heavy metal armor" in the effects tab on your Pip-Boy.
