How To Get Stormcloak Officer Armor in Skyrim

Looking to get and equip the "Armor of Bear" in Skyrim?

Stormcloak Officier Armor is a light armor version of the armor worn by Stormcloaks. This armor is a better version of the basic Stormcloak armor worn by the Stormcloak soldiers. Stormcloak captains can be seen wearing the Stormcloak Officier Armor. This Armor is a part of the Civil War between the Stormcloaks and the Imperial Legion that occurred in Skyrim.

The Stormcloak Officier Armor cannot be crafted on a workbench. It can be upgraded but only to a certain quality. Players need to have a Smithing skill of level 100 to upgrade this armor set fully. Use Enchantments and potions to boost your smithing to upgrade this armor set. Being a Light Armor, the Stromcloak Officer Set provides decent protection, and due to how the armor looks, the armor set is also termed “Bear Armor” in the game.
