"Layered armor" is special armor in Monster Hunter World (MHW) that only changes your appearance while keeping the effects of your equipped armor intact. Once you have some layered armor, you can wear it by following any of the methods below.

You can forge Layered Armor with Iceborne Expansion. Also see Layered Weapon for the weapon equivalent.

  • Item Box Menu (Your Room) > Change Appearance > Layered Armor Settings
  • Item Box Menu (Astera or Research Base) > Layered Armor Settings
  • You can change the color of your layered armor within the settings above, see "Color Presets". Colors only apply to certain parts of the armor, like the stickets or belts, adornments, etc

        Hey guys,

        A lot of you guys are wanting a full list of the available MR Armor so here is what I have so far. Just a little note: To unlock MR layered armor for a certain monster, you may need to fight that monster in it's tempered form. Doing so will unlock you new materials if you haven't fought that tempered monster before.

        Namielle Gamma(Y) +

        Pretty much everything I have, but there may be more. Event armor like guild, dragon cloth, etc will be available in the next event or so. If I missed anything let me know.

        NOTE AGAIN: YOU NEED TO FIGHT THE TEMPERED VERSION OF THAT MONSTER TO UNLOCK THE LAYERED ARMOR AS IT WILL DROP MATERIALS FOR IT TO APPEAR IN THE SMITHY. MONSTERS LIKE FATALIS, ALATREON, AND MORE ARE NOT REQUIRED CAUSE THEY DO NOT EXIST(MAYBE ONE DAY...). ALSO YOU WILL NEED TO DO SOME MINING AND GATHERING IN THE GUIDING LANDS AND BELIEVE ME IT IS THE WORST IF RNG AIN'T ON YOUR SIDE.

        Good day.

            Allright I’m just gonna call it right now but I’m like 100% sure that Capcom will add all MR armor sets as layered. I mean seriously, Josh from Ragegaming actually PREDICTED the layered weapons system when everyone thought he was being a bit crazy. And you know what? IT HAPPENED, NOTHING SEEMS CRAZY ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!! Sure, with the current situation (f*ck you coronavirus) the wait will be much longer than we have patience for. But I’m willing to bet my left nut on this, Capcom WILL add all MR armor as layered.

              Is layered armor only available in the iceborn expansion? I dont have iceborn so can i still get layered armor in the original game?

              • 12 Apr 2020 18:44  

                Actually you're wrong there is actually a layered armor version I know because I have it on PS4 and don't remember what quest I need to do to get the Azure Era Seal and I definitely saw a PC player using it as I always inspect gear to see what kind of builds people use So yea it exist!

                • 09 Apr 2020 00:38  

                  Can someone kindly tell me which quest the Azure Starlord Layered Armor is found to get the Azure Era Seal Ticket. No one on the internet has posted this from the look of it

                    Can you have layered armor on your weapon or something? I see quite a few people who have different weapons than the one they have equipped from the layered armor slot.

                        For those wondering, Ingot Layered Armor does exist, it's just not listed here in this wiki. It takes: 5x Frozen Crystal + 3 Meldspar Ore + 3 Fierce Dragonvein Bones It should be listed after the Dodogama armor!
