The Leather Vest was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.
The Leather Vest has both the lowest base armor and the lowest overall coverage rating out of any body armor. It is equipped in the body armor slot.
The Leather Vest is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Big Al's. It can also be found through city finds.
1,000 Leather Vests will be restocked at Big Al's after being sold out. The amount of time before a restock occurs is half the time it took the item to sell out, rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.
Leather Vests can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Defensive items do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.
|Leather Vest Coverage Stats|
|Body Part||Coverage %|
No armor that is equipped in the body slot offers foot or head protection.
Leather Vests, along with all armor, gain a 20% defensive bonus from the "Tailoring" 10* special at Clothing Stores. The "Regulation" 7* special at Private Security Firms will give a 25% armor mitigation bonus if a player wears a full set of leather armor but equipping virtually any combination of non leather armor without the bonus would result in a higher defense rating due to leather armor's low stats.
