Lamellar armor is where individual scales are perforated on several or all edges and lashed tightly to each other in straight ridged rows and do not need to be attached to a backing. It offered better protection from blunt attacks than mail and it was also cheaper to produce. This armor is very mobile and allows you to move freely to stop oncoming attacks. The Scale Lemellar 20g Armor Roman Vest X-Large covers your torso with overlapping metal panels that give the armor a scaled or patterned appearance. The metal features a darkened finish that retains a gleam. Small areas are affected by the leather rubbing due to the amount of oil needed to maintain this metal and are easily removed or you can leave them for a more antique "battle worn" look. Made from 20 gauge galvanized mild steel panels with top-grain leather fittings, this torso armor offers protection and a distinctive look. This scale armor is great for decorative or LARP purposes or re-enactments.
