The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Armor

In past Zelda games, Link was limited to just a few different sets of clothing. Usually his trademark green tunic would receive a palette swap to red for fire protection or blue for water resistance. This time around there will be many different pieces of clothing and armor for Link to try out. Each will offer up its own level of protection and some will have special attributes, such as cold resistance, so Link can safely explore dangerous regions.

The E3 demo only showed off a small sliver of armor options, but we know from the trailer that Link will eventually be able to don a full set of metal armor. While it will provide enhanced defense, he will need to be careful of storms rolling in as it will act as a lightning rod, electrocuting our hero.

Hylian Trousers

Protection: 4

Traditional dress pants of the Hyrule region. The plush fabric makes these trousers quite comfortable.

Old Shirt

Protection: 1

A thin shirt made long ago. It’s coming apart at the seams, but it’s better than nothing. The sleeves are a bit on the short side.

Quilted Shirt

Protection: 4 *Cold Resistance*

A warm pullover typically worn by mountain folk. Its sturdy fabric and thick gloves are great at retaining body heat.

Well-Worn Pants

Protection: 2

These old pants are threadbare in spots, but they’re surprisingly comfortable. The legs are a bit too short, though.
