The Storm Gear (Resist Screen in Japan) is a Clothing-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. In Golden Sun, the Storm Gear visually resembles a red coat. However, in Dark Dawn, the Storm Gear is redesigned and now resembles a dark grey coat.

Basic Description by Game Edit

In all appearances, the Storm Gear increases the wearer's Defense by 42 points. It also increases the wearer's Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury Resistance by 30 points. It is bought for 9800 coins while its resale value is 7350 coins.

In Golden Sun, it is found in a treasure chest in Crossbone Isle. It can be worn by all Adepts, including those in The Lost Age should the player transfer the Storm Gear.

In Dark Dawn, the Storm Gear is found in a treasure chest in Belinsk. The chest is only accessible for a short period of time. The player must have entered the Ruins via Arangoa Prelude, where they can find a staircase that leads to the previously inaccessible chest. However, the path will soon be blocked off prior to Sveta joining the party. If the Storm Gear is not retrieved during this time period, it can be permanently missed. As in Golden Sun, the Storm Gear can be equipped by all adepts.

Analysis Edit

The Storm Gear is one of Golden Sun's best pieces of bodywear, outdoing even the Dragon Scales, which has nearly identical characteristics, but lacks the Jupiter resistance. Isaac is probably the best candidate for the Storm Gear because his Venus element naturally affords him high Venus resistance, and the Storm Gear will therefore bolster his resistances to the three other elements.

In Dark Dawn, the Storm Gear is an excellent defensive piece when found. Like his father, Matthew is a good candidate since the Gear will give him all around good defenses. Himi, the player's second Venus Adept, can also make use of the Storm Gear for similar reasons as Matthew. It is arguable that she would benefit more, due to her naturally lower Defenses combined with her inability to equip Armor. In both cases however, the player will have the opportunity to equip stronger bodywear as the game goes on.
