Matt, Lance, and NoLegs wearing the Explorer's Jacket in EBF5

The Explorer's Jacket is a male armor available in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. Its hat counterpart is the Spelunking Hat.

Description

The Explorer's Jacket is a sleeveless brown leather jacket worn over a long-sleeved white button-up shirt. If worn by Matt or Lance, it gains brown pants, black shoes, and two leather belts with golden buckles; a thick brown one across the chest and left shoulder, and a thin black one around the waist with a red-brown whip tied to the right side. NoLegs wears a simplified version of the vest and shirt with a thick brown belt around the collar.

Normal

The Explorer's Jacket offers solid Defence and Magic Defence. However, it is most notable for its immense Accuracy boost, which allows the wearer to easily make use of the Giant Slayer and Death Mask without falling prey to severe Accuracy penalties. As such, while the Explorer's Jacket has fairly ho-hum abilities on its own, it is a useful piece of equipment for its ability to swiftly make two remarkably powerful pieces of equipment far more usable. In addition, the Explorer's Jacket also improves the chances of catching foes.

It's worth noting that the Explorer's Jacket faces a lot of competition from the Scottish Kilt, which offers lesser (but still strong) Accuracy as well as a good Attack boost. If Accuracy is not an issue (which is most of the game outside of select fights like with a Cosmic Monolith), the Explorer's Jacket should be exchanged for a more powerful piece of equipment.

The Explorer's Jacket resists Bio, Poison, Virus, Wet, and Dry. All but the first become an immunity at level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Explorer's Jacket has decent Defence, Magic Defence, and Evade, along with a significant Magic Attack bonus and a boost to debuff skills. The latter benefits the Bind it can cast between turns, helping to keep enemy Evade under control. Its combination of stats and effects can be useful for Lance, who has a wide selection of debuffs and a predominantly magic-based offensive skillset.

The Alt Explorer's Jacket is resistant to Earth, Bio, Weaken, and Tired. The latter two become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Explorer's Jacket is found inside a chest at the end of the Frozen Valley, accessible after defeating Poseidon.
