The leather armour, also known as leather suit, is a recurring type of armour in the Dragon Quest series. It is light armour, which is often available early on in various games.


Dragon Quest

Leather armour can be bought at Tantegel, BrecconaryGarinham, and Cantlin for 70 gold. Due to text restrictions in the Game Boy Color version of the game, leather armour was renamed to "Leathr" with a symbol for armour next to it. In the Mobile versions, it was renamed to "leather suit".
