Body armor in the Golden Sun series belong to multiple classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to the Robe class of armor, most of which can be equipped by all mage-style Adepts to date: Ivan and Mia in the first gameJenna and Sheba in the second gameKarisRiefAmiti, and Himi in the third game. Some robes, however, are female exclusive and can generally be identified by the word "dress" in its name. In addition, Sveta is able to equip these "dresses".

All robes that are counted as "common" are robes that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All robes that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger robes that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one armor can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterwards to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

The prices the games assign to each robe are quite reliable indicators of how good each armor is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A robe that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other robe even if the other robe has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive robe. Therefore, the following robes are all arranged by price. Also, they are divided into groups based on what game they first appear in. Keep in mind that many of these robes continue to be used in later games, even if they are not listed under that game's list of Robes.
