The list of available armor is even smaller than the list of weapons. Geralt begins the game with no armor at all, is then given his first studded leather jacket by Vesemir and then there are only two other sets of armor he can acquire over the course of the rest of the game.
Geralt looks like he does in the picture to the right (white outfit). With no armor equipped, he retains (1) quickslot anyway.
The highest quality iron ores and state of the art technologies were used in the making of Raven's armor, a legendary suit of armor worn by an even more legendary warrior. It was forged in the gnomes' workshops beneath Mount Carbon, but finished by elves. The songmaster Tyen'sail took an interest in the armor and worked for twelve days straight, each movement of his chisel accompanied by a song of power. It is said that the armor sang a song of victory for its wearer providing him with confidence and calm during battle.
