Some clothing items like the Leather Duster have a mod slot in addition to the cosmetic slot, but I can't find any mods that will work with them.

    I'm pretty sure the clothing items like the duster can't actually take any mods despite there being a mod slot.

It's been a couple of Versions since I played, but as I recall, there are two mods that work on clothing, the Storage Pocket mod (not to be confused with the Storage Pocket mod which only works on armour...) and Cargo Pocket mod which Decrease encumbrance penalty by 1 and 2 respectively.

I don't recall ever finding any, I learned how to make them from the book "Needle and Thread vol 7" and crafted them myself.

    Ah, one of the first skills I got is 'Pack Mule' so I never really paid attention to those type of mods. The actual mods as of A19 are 'Clothing Pocket Mod' which gives 1 slot and I think you can make from the start and 'Clothing Double Pocket Mod' which is from Needle & Thread 7. Thanks! Looking through the xml config the duster has the 'pocketMod' tag and those are the only two mods that have that in 'installable_tags' so that should be a complete list.

    @JasonGoemaat Yeah, as I mentioned it's been a few versions since I last played, and they were pretty new at the time, so I'm not surprised that they gave them less confusing names. Commented Feb 15, 2021 at 22:19

    There's also a triple pocket, and you can actually max out your inventory using just mods.

  • Yes, there are separate single, double, and triple pocket mods that work in armor. Commented Apr 27, 2021 at 16:12

According to the wiki entry on mods, mods can only be used on Armor, specifically Light Armor or Heavy Armor, and not items that are classified as Clothing or Apparel.

The Leather Duster specifically is grouped under Clothing and Apparel, and therefore can't have any Armor mods applied to it, despite having a Modifier slot.
