1. Pelt Armor

The first on the list is the Pelt armor, as it defends you against enemies the best till you unlock the coarse and metal armor. However, they both unlock after level 20, so reaching that level isn’t that easy. Pelt armor gives you moderate protection and allows you to survive for longer. 

  • Provides moderate protection.
  • Has moderate durability.
  • Doesn’t Cost too much to make. 
  • Some mid-game pals can still one-shot you.

Why I Chose This: The main reason I chose Pelt armor is due to its low crafting cost and its moderate durability and protection, making it the best armor for mid areas in Palworld.

2. Heat Resistant Pelt Armor

The Heat Resistant Pelt Armor is extremely important in pelt armor. Its significance makes it one of the best armors in Palworld. You need it in order to survive in the Volcano area. If you go there without the Heat Resistant Pelt Armor, then the area will instantly finish you off. There are some of the best pals in the Volcano, so make sure you have the armor before you go to capture them.

  • Provides moderate protection.
  • The durability is reasonable.
  • Protects from heat.
  • Can’t be used at night due to the cold weather.

Why I Chose This: I chose the heat-resistant armor to be on the list as there are must-to-visit areas that can deplete your health instantly.

3. Cold Resistant Pelt Armor

Now that you know, heat-resistant Pelt Armor is necessary to go to the hot regions, and the same is true for cold regions. You would need the Cold Resistant Pelt Armor for the whole Snow Area. It is vital in that area; otherwise, the cold warning will appear, and you will freeze to death. I would still recommend using the shield with it to increase your chance of survival. 

  • The protection and durability are both moderate.
  • Protects from cold. 
  • Cant be used in warm areas.

Why I Chose This: The Cold Resistant armor protects you from cold weather, and such places are must-visit areas. Without the armor, they can deplete your health pretty quickly.

4. Tundra Outfit

In the early game, there won’t be Pelt Armor unlocked, so you would have to craft the Thundra outfit. Now, this depends on the scenario. If you want to explore the area at night, then I would recommend getting it. The Tundra outfit will protect you from the cold weather. 

  • Provides enough protection for the early game.
  • Provides resistance against cold.
  • Has low durability.

Why I Chose This: I chose Tundra Outfit because it is the best early-game armor in Palworld for protection against the cold.

5. Tropical Outfit

Tundra Outfit was used to protect you from the heat, so the Tropical is used to protect you from the heat. If you are planning to explore warm areas early, then I would highly recommend getting it. The Heat Resistant Pelt Armor unlocks after a long time, so getting it will be worth it even if its durability and protection are low.

  • Provides enough protection for the early game.
  • Protects you from heat.
  • The durability is quite low.

Why I Chose This: The Tropical outfit, while providing low protection, surely is the best armor for protection against heat in early areas of Palworld.

6. Cloth Outfit

Now, in the start, you will have nothing, but you will level four with a breeze. So, that is when the Cloth Outfit will be unlocked. It won’t protect you from cold or warm weather, but it does give you some low protection. So, it is better to have it rather than keep your character naked until there are better options. It is actually the best armor choice for the starting, and it doesn’t even cost much.

  • The crafting cost is pretty low.
  • Protects against the cold of the night. 
  • Low protection and durability.

Why I Chose This: I chose the Cloth outfit as it unlocks pretty quickly, and for a while, players will have to stick with it to avoid the cold from the night.

My Take

I think the best armor for Mid and Early games is the Pelt Armor due to its moderate durability and protection. 

I have personally used the Pelt Armor the most, and it is way better than the cloth armor. While the Heat and cold-resistant armors are great, they can’t be used in the opposite weather. Also, they cost more, making the plain Pelt armor the best choice. I would highly recommend using it with a shield for better survivability. 

That is almost everything you would want to know about the best armor for mid and early areas in Palworld. While you are at it, you should check out the detailed review of Palworld by Rabiya Rizwan.
