Heavy Armor Warmth Ratings

This page tracks Warmth ratings for various types of heavy armor in Skyrim when playing Survival Mode. It includes all armor included in vanilla Skyrim, as well as armor included in the Anniversary Edition.

Armor added by mods is not covered.

Unless otherwise specified, all game IDs for items listed here are pulled from relevant pages on The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages. Please refer to that site for more in-depth information on all items.

I give permission for other Skyrim wiki and/or fandom sites to copy over this information, but if you do so, I would appreciate a link back to this page or to the homepage of Anna Plays Skyrim. Thank you in advance.

Information here is based on observations during my Survival Mode playthrough, now in progress. It is therefore a work in progress. Interested players should periodically come back and check this page for updates.
