|A sturdy chestplate.|
The Bandos chestplate is a part of the Bandos armour set, which requires 65 Defence to wear. It is dropped by General Graardor and his bodyguards in the God Wars Dungeon. Unlike the other body armours which provide a strength bonus, the Bandos chestplate features a slight prayer bonus and substantial defensive bonuses.

Bandos armour is arguably the most powerful non-degradable melee armour in Old School Runescape. For this reason, it is a common selection for melee training, Slayer tasks, and other prolonged combat encounters. Its excellent ranged protection along with its strength and prayer bonus makes it popular for some boss hunting scenarios. Stat-wise, it is comparable to the barrows platebodies, which provide almost identical ranged protection and significantly higher melee protection. However, barrows armor does not provide any strength or prayer bonus and degrades.
It should be noted that the Bandos chestplate is one of the heaviest pieces of body armour in the game, second to only the granite body, which is 10kg heavier.

- The inventory sprite for the Bandos chestplate is missing both the shoulder spikes and the sleeve. It also resembles the male version of the chestplate more than the female version.
- A minor bug occurs when equipping a skillcape with the Bandos chestplate; the cape's left shoulder piece seems to merge with the chestplate's pauldron.
- The Bandos chestplate does not interfere with Ava's device.
- The Bandos chestplate does not penalise the wearer's magic attack bonus as much as a regular platebody.
