Protecting Link from the environment

Armor are pieces of clothing and protective covering that Link can wear in Breath of the Wild.

Location and Uses

Armor serves a variety of purposes, primarily to provide Link with defensive padding, allowing him to endure more damage. Certain pieces of Armor can also boost Link's attack, boost his movement speed on snow, sand, water or while climbing, boost his stealth capabilities, or protect him from the environment. Environmental hazards include lightning, fire, heat, ice, and the cold. Most clothing can be enhanced up to four times by the revived Great Fairies, with the number of available upgrades dependent on how many Great Fairies have been restored.

Extra pieces of Armor were also added through the Expansion Pass DLC.
