Chameleon leather armor was a type of armor used on Toril.


Chameleon leather was made from the treated hide of an ophidian.The breastplate and shoulders of the armor were stiffened by boiling in oil. The rest of the armor remained tough, but flexible. The armor did maintain a fraction of the color-changing abilities that the ophidian once possessed. Chamelon leather could only be crafted by a master leatherwoker.[1]


Chameleon armor was only commonly found in communities near the Serpent Hills. Any serpentfolk who encountered non-serpentfolk wearing chameleon leather would treat the wearers with disdain or hostility.[1]
