Now that we've discussed the importance of a guide and some of the common dangers posed by indigenous creatures, if you’re still convinced you’d like to travel through the deadly Alik'r Desert, you must be properly clothed. As you can tell from our review of aggressive beasts, you will absolutely need protection, but not just any armor will do.
First, it's important to cover yourself fully to avoid painful burning from the sun. Even the back of the neck and top of the head must be covered. I strongly recommend that you purchase one of the typical leather armors worn by Redguards. The cloth components breathe surprisingly well, and the leather plates offer excellent lightweight protection. Consider a covering for the mouth, as sandstorms are common, and breathing in grit is rather unpleasant.
