Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found.
Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer:

Change it up
All of these armor sets allow you to individually change each piece's color, and there are twenty color options you can choose from. You are aren't forced to wear a complete armor set if you don't want to. If you happen to like the look of the Wasteland pants but prefer the Robot Disguise helmet, you can mix and match pieces to your heart's content.
