This item cannot be crafted but only purchased through trade or received as a quest reward. It also spawns on Imperial Nobles.
Compared to similar items, the Eltex shirt has the same coverage as, and similar protection to, a cloth t-shirt. This makes it significantly less protective than typical late-game options such as Devilstrand button-down shirts, which has four times the sharp rating and superior coverage. However, due to the mechanics of armor penetration the loss of protection is not as significant as the eltex robe replacing a duster, especially if paired with other protective items such as dusters, flak vests or the various powered armors.
An eltex shirt improves a pawn's base neural heat recovery rate by 0.033 heat per second, though this will be modified by their psylink level, and increases their Psychic Sensitivity by an amount dependent on the quality.
