Mandalorian armor referred to the traditional armor worn by the human warrior clans of Mandalore. Common traits included a helmet with a T-shaped visor that concealed their faces, and armaments like whipcord throwers, flamethrowers and jetpacks.
The ancient Mandalorian crusaders wore helmets over cloaks. By the Mandalorian Civil War, two styles of armor had emerged—the formidable traditional armor of the warrior clans like Death Watch, and those of the pacifist New Mandalorians. Death Watch's female warriors, the Nite Owls, wore a different set of armor.
Jango Fett wore Mandalorian armor, though Prime Minister Almec expressed bewilderment as to how since Fett was a bounty hunter rather than a Mandalorian. The Kaminoans who cloned him to create the Grand Army of the Republic took inspiration from his suit for the clone trooper armor.
After Fett was killed by Jedi Master Mace Windu during the Battle of Geonosis, his helmet was used by Boba as a bomb in an attempt on Windu's life. By the Age of the Empire, Boba had acquired his own Mandalorian armor.
The former Sith Lord Darth Maul became ruler of Mandalore during the Clone Wars, causing his followers in Death Watch to customize their armor with painted helmets and horns resembling the Dathomirian Nightbrother.
Sometime after the Battle of Endor, a seemingly acid-corroded yet complete set of Mandalorian armor somehow ended up in storage in a Jawa sandcrawler on Tatooine. A man named Adwin Charu, who was on the sandcrawler looking for goods on behalf of his employer Lorgan Movellan, happened upon a crate containing the armor. Before he could take it, however, Cobb Vanth, a local man who had assisted in gaining Charu access to the sandcrawler, shot Charu in the shoulder and took the armor for his own.
Traditional Mandalorian armor consisted of a helmet, shoulder pauldrons, wrist gauntlets, breastplate, codpiece, kneepads, thigh and shin guards clasped over a body stocking. Mandalorian helmets had a macrobinocular viewplate, a comlink and antenna tipped with a rangefinder that could be pulled over the viewplate to enhance imagery. Sabine Wren programmed a holo-imager in her rangefinder to take snapshots. They wore magnetized shoes.

The Z-6 jetpack allowed Mandalorians to fly in combat. These were tipped with a launcher that were often used to fire anti-vehicle homing missile. However, they could also be used to fire a grappling hook linked to an internal winch. Gyro-stabilizers made it easy to maneuver in the air, although the tank only contained enough fuel for twenty short bursts of flight.
