7 Best Armor Mods for Skyrim on Xbox One

1 of 8

There's a ton of stuff to do in Skyrim's base game, and players have all the freedom they could ask for to play the game the way they want to. But when you add mods into the mix, the possibilities really do become endless. 

Mods add all kinds of things to the game -- more weapons, graphical updates, extra quests, new areas, and more. Among the more helpful of these mods are armor mods, which add new armor sets or change existing armor. Whether it's new rings to boost your magical power or a never-before-seen armor sets made from strange materials, these mods have a lot to offer players. 

If you're an Xbox One player, uncovering good armor mods can be a little bit more difficult than it is for PC players. So we've rounded up the best armor mods that are available in the Skyrim mod marketplace for Xbox One.

Ring of Advanced Carry Weight

This mod gives you access to two rings -- one that adds 1,000 points of carry weight to your character, and another that adds 1,000,000. These rings will make it so your character is able to carry more weight in their inventory. 

This mod should be usable with almost any mod except for those that change the inventory of Belethor in Whiterun, since you have to buy the item from him.

Zerofrost Mythical Armor 1: Nightingale Prime Remastered

This mod will add a new set of armor that you can get once you become a part of the inner circle of the Thieves' Guild, The Nightingales. This armor will work for both male and female characters. 

To get this armor you can either obtain it from a chest near the entrance of the Nightingale Hall, or you can craft it. However, in order to craft it you will need a piece of the original Nightingale armor.

Rough Leather Armor

This mod will add new leather armor to the game -- including body armor, boots, gloves, and hoods. This armor can be crafted if the player has the advanced armor perk. If the player does not have the advanced armor perk, they can still purchase the armor from Balimund from Riften.

Royal Daedric Armor and Weapons

The armor can work on both men and women.

Ashara Newermind's Elven Archer Armor Revisited

This mod will add new versions of Newermin's elven armor. These newer versions include different color options, compatibility with weapon sheath mods, and a change of the weapon distance to the player so the weapon would not float. 

This armor can be crafted at any forge, but is only available for females.

Horses Wear Armor

Unlike the other mods, this mod is not for the player -- but for their mounts. 

This mod adds various armors for the horses in Skyrim. It will not work with any horse retexture mods, though, so be aware of that before you download. Depending on which armor you choose, it's strong enough that your horse could become near-invulnerable with extremely high health.

Darth Vader

This mod will add a set of armor that looks just like Darth Vader's getup in Star Wars. It also includes a craftable light saber that can be created without any perks or materials. The helmet has three pieces, and the mask includes a breathing sound as well. 

This mod is for males only.
