Medium Armour tends towards medium weight and a balance between Ether Def and Physical Def. It can only be worn by characters who have the Medium Equipment skill, or through Skill Links at a cost of 10 Affinity Coins. Shulk, Reyn, Sharla, and Dunban have this skill as soon as they join the party.
Medium Armours have three general designs as represented by Hunter, Regnas, and Eryth. All medium equipment shares a general appearance with one of the three, with several colour variants of each.
