Leather Armor is the cheapest and least-protective armor available. It offers an Armor Class of 8 and it has +2 AC penalty to piercing and slashing attacks, which means it offers no protection against these types of damage. It's often worn by bandits and hobgoblins. It's sold at many weapon and armor stores throughout the games. This item appears in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition.
|“||Leather armor, despite the popular misconception, is not soft and supple like the leather used to make a ranger's boots or a druid's robe. That kind of leather offers no better protection than common clothing.||”|
