I searched everywhere for methods on repairing armor and people said that you could ask people to repair armor for you but it's too expensive. Then I saw people saying you could "cannibalize" armor, and by that I mean using similar armor to repair the primary armor set. But I don't see the option to do so. I went to my workbench but it didn't say anything about repairing my armor.
Open the weapons or armour page on your pip-boy and find the item you want to repair. Mouse over it and press r (Y on xbox 360). If you have identical or very similar weapons or armour to use in the repairs, you will see a list of items you can use for repairs. Click them to use them.
Increasing your repair skill will make your repairs more efficient.
The Jury Rigging perk, available at level 14 with 90 repair, allows you to repair any item with any item of the same category. For example, you can repair a magnum revolver with any handgun or repair power armour with any heavy armour.
You're supposed to be able to repair the armor the same way you repair a weapon on your pip-boy, if both armor are similar, you can "cannibalize" them the same way you cannibalize weapons.
else, there is a list of all NPCs that can repair :
- Dale Barton- Fortification Hill

- Calamity- Jacobstown
- Old Lady Gibson- Gibson Scrap Yard
- Mick- Mick & Ralph's
