The Vault Jumpsuit is a set of standard clothing worn by all inhabitants of Vault-Tec Vaults. The number of the Vault is on the back of the suit. Vault suits from Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel and Van Buren were depicted as skin tight, but they were not so in Fallout 3 and Fallout Tactics. Thus is likely just a difference of design interpretation, it's possible that the Vault suits in the Capital Wasteland and for Vault 0 were just made differently.


Fallout 2

The holy vault suit

In Fallout 2 the Chosen One must earn the right to wear the jumpsuit of his ancestor, the Vault Dweller, by completing the Temple of Trials. Once this quest is completed the player's default clothing changes from tribal clothing to the jumpsuit permenantly. The jumpsuit is regarded as a holy item by the people of Arroyo.

The "Vault City" jumpsuit is identical to other jumpsuits, but lacks a number of any sort on the back. it is possible that these where included in the vault for when the citizens emerged, or that the citizens simply removed them themselves after they left Vault 8. Interestingly enough, First Citizen Joanne Lynette wears a jumpsuit that appears to be hooded.

There are Vault Jumpsuits for every Vault which appears in Fallout 3 although two of them are only found in the game files. In addition, there is a Vault 77 Jumpsuit as a reference to the Penny Arcade Comic as well as a few unique and/or modified variants.

Every Vault Jumpsuit can be used to repair other Vault Jumpsuits.


Vault 77 Jumpsuit

Main article: Vault 77 Jumpsuit

The Vault 77 Jumpsuit was a piece of clothing originally worn by the Puppet Man who was the only inhabitant of Vault 77. It can be obtained from a shelf in the Slaver barracks in Paradise Falls.

Vault 87 Jumpsuit

The following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

These suits were worn by the ill-fated subjects of Vault 87's Evolutionary Experimentation Program.

Although the Vault 87 Jumpsuit was put into the game's files, the game itself offers no opportunity for the player to obtain one, and the only one seen throughout the game is worn by Fawkes, ripped to shreds by his enormous super mutant body. While Fawkes' suit is grey, the wearable version is blue. It is likely that the color of Fawkes' suit simply faded with the passage of time.

Vault 92 Jumpsuit

The following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The Vault 92 Jumpsuit is unobtainable because the Vault 92 inhabitants are dead and their clothing is decayed.

Vault 101 Jumpsuit

The Vault 101 Jumpsuit is the standard clothing given to the inhabitants of Vault 101. Children receive the Vault 101 Child's Jumpsuit instead, a version without bonuses.

While wearing the Vault 101 Jumpsuit, dialogue with certain NPCs will be slightly different as opposed to wearing a variant of the vault suit, such as the Armored Vault Suit, Vault 101 Utility Jumpsuit or other apparel from the Wasteland. This is most easily observed in Megaton, where Lucas Simms will make a comment upon the player entering the town for the first time about the clothing, but only if the player is wearing the jumpsuit upon entry. When speaking to certain other NPCs in Megaton (Billy Creel, Jericho, and Leo Stahl to name a few.) and throughout the Capital Wasteland, they will also make remarks about the suit when talking to them for the first time, or instead of calling you a Wastelander, they will instead recognize you as a former Vault Dweller.

James wears "Dad's Wasteland Outfit", which is a heavier, dirtier Vault 101 jumpsuit with rolled up sleeves and unbuttoned collar.

Vault 106 Jumpsuit

The Vault 106 Jumpsuit can be found on the corpses of the insane survivors in Vault 106.

Vault 108 Jumpsuit

The Vault 108 Jumpsuit can be found on any of the various Garys within Vault 108. Unlike other Jumpsuits, 108 is extremely dirty, has an unbuttoned collar, black undershirt, and rolled up sleeves, similar to Dad's Wasteland Outfit, just with a "108" on the back. The jumpsuit is dirty presumably because of the state of Vault 108. A Vault 108 jumpsuit with the gauntlets (DLC02VaultSuit108) can be found on Gary 23, but it cannot be looted. If a female player dons the suit, it looks like a dirty 101 suit.

Vault 112 Jumpsuit

The Vault 112 Jumpsuit is distributed by the Robobrain upon entering Vault 112.

It is possible to get an unlimited number of the Vault 112 Jumpsuits. Simply drop the one the Robobrain gives you and talk to it again. You can do this over and over again, but it isn't actually that useful as the uniforms aren't worth much. There MAY be two invisible Vault 112 jumpsuits in one of the upper right rooms (clinic) of Vault 112. There should be a ledge with two of them and jumping on the ledge makes them visible. Otherwise you will be still able to pick them up even if they are invisible. Just look for when it says: "Take Vault 112 Jumpsuit".

Other variants

Vault Jumpsuits appear in all Fallout games.

However, in Fallout and Fallout 2 they are worn by the player character by default and in Fallout 3 and Van Buren, they appear as actual in-game items.

In Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, they are not usable by the player.
