|“||This armor is built from Hookfang's scales and covered with claws and spikes from head to toe, leaving the helmet looking exactly like Hookfang's head. To add a unique touch to his suit, Snotlout added a cape. Although not much use may come from the cape, besides being used as great decoration, it is a way to be different from the rest of your fellow Dragon Riders. [src]||”|

At some point between How to Train Your Dragon 2 and the third movie (a span of about a year), Snotlout's armor was constructed.
Snotlout uses his dragon scale armor during any time there is a high risk of injury. He uses it multiple times such as when raiding Dragon Trapper ships to free dragons.
About ten years after the main events of the film, Snotlout's dragon scale armor is not in evidence, so it is unknown if he still has it or if it is still wearable or functional.
Snotlout's dragon scale armor appears to be formed of several different pieces tailored to fit his body. There is the helmet, a scaled cape, chest plating, a scaled cod piece, gloves and arm guards, scaled leggings, and boots. There are also two wing structures kept folded for flight when needed. The suit is made out of Hookfang's shed scales, so has a predominantly red color. The scales appear to be attached to a leather base, presumably with Toothless' sticky saliva as the gluing agent. The whole suit is further embellished with a number of spikes and claws, as well as a costume-like helmet resembling Hookfang's head.
The cape attached to Snotlout's dragon scale armor appears to serve little function except as decoration. It does tend to catch on things and is a drawback to the suit.
Due to its construction from Hookfang's scales, Snotlout's dragon scale armor is effectively impervious to fire. It is unknown if the non-scale portions are also treated in some way to be fire-retardant.
As a suit of armor, it affords some protection from attack, much better than normal clothing. However, dragon skin and scales can be cut and pierced, so the armor is not fully protective from all attack.
