Reasonable sure the stealth equation uses armor weight instead of caring about type
Interesting, because like I said, replacing my leather with combat armor only raised the weight by about one pound. That's why I was confused why everyone seems to suggest leather armor for stealth builds.
And if I am remembering correctly, you can Upgrade the armor to "Shadowed" and that decreases detection chance in dark areas while Lighter Build does just that - lightens armor weight. There are also Chameleon and Cloaking Legendary armors that basically go auto-Stealthboy when you are still. And since it's Legendary, each piece stacks the effect.
