These clothing are essential for staying dry even in the rain.
DayZ players are well aware that the land of Chernarus is not only dangerous because of the sick. Players should also keep an eye out for changes in the weather. In DayZ, the rain could damage any things players are carrying in their backpacks, which could be a terrible loss—maybe even worse than the deadliest infected.
If it rains on clothes that aren’t waterproof, the water will soak into the clothes, which could make the character’s body temperature drop and could be bad for their health. Because of this, players should be careful not to underestimate the damage water can do and should always keep themselves and their items safe from it.
As you might expect, wellies are one of the most waterproof items in the game. They also happen to be one of the most popular items in the vast open world, especially in farming and fishing areas where people wear them all the time. Protecting against rain and sources of water almost completely and completely waterproof.
But while the wellies are waterproof, they won’t protect against damage as well as other items would. They only have a 100 toughness rating and protection ratings that range from 1 to 0.9, but they are easy to fix with some duct tape. The wellies also have dark, subtle colors that stay between black and deep green, which helps them blend in.
The ballistic helmet is one of many military-grade items that players can equip. It is one of the most common helmets that spawn, more so than the tactical or attack helmets. It can be found all over Chernarus, mostly in military bases. For those who want to protect their head from water, though, the ballistic helmet is the one they should look for anyway.
The helmet protects against shrapnel and is very good at absorbing shock and damage. It is strong enough to protect the player from a burst of assault rifle bullets at close range and from damage from close fighting. The ballistic helmet protects against the rain pretty well, with a water absorption rate of 24.9%. This keeps you from getting sick from the rain.
All of DayZ’s eyewear seems to offer the best protection from water and the darkest survival requirements. However, the tactical goggles are the most useful because they do more than just not soak up water. Not only do they improve the wearer’s vision by blocking lens flare, but they also do so without adding any color or shade. This is helpful when discovering the dangerous world of Cheranrus.
The tactical goggles are made for the military, so players who want to use them for defense can find them in military bases. They don’t drop very often, so players might find more popular items first. However, they aren’t too hard to get.
The pants, which are part of the fireman outfits, are great for players who want gear that is waterproof and has a lot of insulation. Since the pants only absorb 24.9% of water, most rain will just roll off of them, keeping you dry. These bags have 24 storage slots, so players can bring more things with them while they explore. They also have a 150 durability, which isn’t great but it’s not bad either.
They aren’t as protective in battle as other tactical gear, but they’re great for protecting players who get stuck in the rain because they can be stored away and are waterproof. You can find these everyday things in fire stations. They are either black or brown, which can help you blend in with your surroundings.
The raincoat is one of many coats in DayZ. It is a rare drop that can happen in many places, such as urban areas, farms, and fishing spots, and it comes in many colors. As you might think, the raincoat protects players well from the rain, keeping them dry and preventing illnesses that are spread by rain.
Wearing the raincoat also gives them other benefits, like a durability rating of 150 and 20 extra inventory spots on top of what their other gear gives them. This means that both they and the things they store inside can benefit from the waterproof feature. There are both bright and dark raincoats. The bright ones might make players stand out more to enemies, but the dark ones might help them fit in with their surroundings.
Along with the pants, players can sometimes find a jacket that goes with them in fire stations. With an absorption rate of 24.9%, it keeps out some of the heat and some of the water. This means that most of the water will just roll off the material instead of soaking through and hitting the player’s skin. It doesn’t offer a lot of protection—only 150 protection scores of 1 and 0.9. But it’s still worth putting in the body slot because it keeps you dry in the rain.
Besides that, the firefighter jacket has 42 built-in storage slots that let players take more than what their other gear lets them.
The patrol pants are another example of military-grade gear. They are made to be flexible and last a long time. The material they are made of also protects players from the weather and some chemicals. They are often worn by the military because they are waterproof, so you can often find them in military areas.
The patrol pants have 30 slots, which is a pretty good amount of space for carrying things. This means that the person wearing them can store more things. And those things will also be protected from water because the pants are waterproof. They are also light, so the person wearing them won’t be dragged down by heavier gear.
Tunnel Rush players can find the patrol jacket in military areas, which is a rare item that will protect against elements like water and wind, but like the pants, it won’t offer much insulation from the cold, which is something players should keep in mind to avoid dying over and over again.
On the other hand, the patrol jacket is still a great piece of waterproof clothing that players should really think about getting. It protects against rain, has 42 inventory spots, and has a camouflage print that helps players hide from enemies.
