These armors will provide high levels of protection to your rangers plus other useful effects. While some of them are part of sets, there's no bonus for having all the pieces on one character, so feel free to mix and match.

Unique utility items in Wasteland 3

In addition to three armor slots, every character in Wasteland 3 has a utility slot that can be equipped with powerful trinkets that up their skills or provide other bonuses such as an increased chance of scoring a critical hit or a faster movement speed. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to sort your inventory to see utility items, so be sure to go through everything you're carrying periodically in case you didn't notice picking one of these items up. You'll definitely want to equip them as soon as you can.
