Final Fantasy VII Remake Armor List: all armor with stats and materia slots

As well as the various weapons you can equip in Final Fantasy VII Remake, each character also has a single armor slot that can be used to equip a defense-boosting item that'll also offer you the chance to slot in a couple more materia. While Armor is much more static, it's still a vital part of your character progression, especially because of those Materia slots.

This, dear reader, is our Final Fantasy VII Remake Armor List, and it does exactly what you'd expect: it lists all of the armor in the game and its stats, plus where you can find it. It's really that simple. Wow.

Anyway, armor is very important, like we said. While you can augment your attack and defense stats in other ways with weapon upgrades, leveling up and equipping certain materia, armor is the most straightforward way to increase your Defense and Magic Defense stats. Armor also gives you extra materia slots, like we said, and certain materia are life-or-death useful when slotted into your armor. Specifically, elemental materia can be used to completely nullify or even absorb elemental magic attacks against you, turning an enemy's greatest strength into a huge weakness. We talk about this more in death on our full FF7 Remake Materia guide.

Almost every piece of armor in the game can be purchased, but some are also only loot. A handful are also items that you can steal from enemies

If you want to really soak yourself in all that sweet, sweet FF7 Remake equipment info, be sure to check out our full weapons guide as well. If you're just looking to be as equipped as possible for battle, also give our guides on summons, limit breaks list and enemy skills a look too.
