What does equipping armor on Atreus do in God of War Ragnarok?

Are the clothes just cosmetic?

There are many ways to improve Kratos' abilities and skills in God of War Ragnarok. Frozen and Chaos Flames can upgrade weapons and combat ability, and armor can upgrade Kratos' stats and health, but Atreus is not so lucky. There are ways to increase his combat abilities, but his armor will not contribute. Atreus' armor is purely cosmetic in God of War Ragnarok, and while there are many different armor sets for Atreus to wear, they will not affect his skills and abilities.
