Characteristics[edit]

The leather armour consists of a simple breastplate and faulds made out of brown leather held on the body with belts. This lightweight armour provides a decent amount of protection early in the game and can even be equipped by characters and vocations who cannot wear heavier armour.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest[edit]

Due to text restrictions in the Game Boy Color remake of Dragon Quest, the leather armour was renamed to Leathr with a symbol for armour next to it. It is known as the leather suit in the mobile versions.
