If by best you mean the Highest armor rating, then no, the armor with the highest rating is Daedric armor. Daedric armor is only slightly better than dragonplate (1-2 more points) but Daedric Weapons are the best craftable weapons in the game by a large margin. The only thing that makes the dragon armor better is the fact that it is Dragon bones and scales are a lot easier to come by than Daedra Hearts (what you need to create Daedric Armor). Dragon armor has both Light and Heavy armor types but no weapons.
