    Is there something different about Mando’s armour to that of other Mandolorian’s and his own previous set?

    It's beskar, which I think is supposed to be an extremely strong and rare metal that's held in high regards in Mandalorian culture. That's why it was such a big deal for him to get it in Episode 1.

    Yes but isn’t all Mando armour made of Beskar? Although clearly not every Mando has blaster proof armour.

    It is not as far as I recall stated in the show that beskar is a rare metal - the problem is that the Empire stole what was on Mandolore. And I assume something is preventing access to the location where it can be mined.

    No. I don't think it is.

    There are probably bits and pieces that are on some other Mandalorians. But I'm not sure if they all walk around with a full set. Hence why the shipment of beskar ingots was a significant prize for the Mandalorian. It meant he could replace his knocked together suit of armour for a full beskar one.

    That does make sense.

    I had assumed the armour we see on Mando’s in season one was either beskar armour hadn’t down or owned by each pre-Empire. I knew the beskar was a big deal but thought it minute because there Empire had a stranglehold on the supply but not the knowledge to mould it.

    I had assumed that beskar armour offered a high level of protection but it until season two I had not thought of it as invincible.

    I much prefer that not all armour is beskar. All Mandos being that protected by armour is less fun.
