Requires heavy armor

I have a lot of stuff in my inventory meant for Khem Val. Everything says "requires heavy armor." What do I need to do to get this boy dressed in some decent equipment?

in your character sheet window (press the C key), there is a companion tab. Click that tab. If you are on your ship you can then select any companion you have and apply equipment. Just make sure that the companion is not on any crafting or gathering crew skill mission. If you are in the field then whichever companion you have as active will be the only one you can equip.

Nothing, just put it on him.

I've tried opening the inventory and right clicking, but it says "You don't have the skill to use that item." How do I get the skill required?

You don't get the skill but if you have Khem out with his character window up, you should have no problem.

As psandak said, open up your character window but with Khem Val out. on the bottom of the window will be a character tab. Click that and it should show your companions equipment now instead of yours. Now with your inventory window open at the same time, try to equip his gear as you would your own.

When you do it this way, your basically telling the game you want to equip it to yourself and not your companion

The "you" in "you dont have the skill" means you.

Stop trying to put it on yourself and put it on Khem Val

Press C and have your companions gear window opened.

Thanks for all the replies. Okay, I opened up Khem's window, moved several items into the slots. When I close the window, he's unchanged, still just a loincloth. Maybe I'm missing a step?

Also, I'm a Sith Assassin. Would that be a problem?

Khem (and other companions that differ considerably from the standard humanoid body types) does not have armor visuals.
As if I have anything worth putting in a signature...

Khem's appearance doesn't change with equips. The only way to change how he looks (along with Bowdaar and I'm guessing the droids) is through Companion Customizations that you equip onto them.

The gear is still working, it just doesn't change his appearance. Hope that explains it.
I don't know where I am, but I know I don't like it.

He always looks like he is wearing just a loin cloth. Open the inventory window to make sure the armor to make sure it is all there. If so, you are good to go.
