Armor is a new class of items in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Armor serves a variety of purposes, primarily defensive, allowing Link to take more damage. Certain pieces of Armor such as the Quilted Shirt can also protect Link from the elements similar to the Goron Tunic from Ocarina of Time.
