What is Layered Armor

An Armor That Changes Your Appearance

Samurai layered Armor

Layered armor is highly similar to the “Transmog” mechanic from other games where you replace the current look of your equipped items. It however, differs slightly in Monster Hunter World. In MHW, you craft Layered Armor and equip them, you don't necessarily replace your armor's look, you just equip something else to cover your current hunter's armor.

The difference is once you craft and equip a Layered Armor, changing your current equipment will not change your hunter's look if a Layered Armor is equipped.
