Lorica Segmentata Roman Articulated Chestplate by SZCO Knives
The lōrīca segmentāta (segmented plates) was a type of laminated or laminar armor (metal strips fashioned into circular bands). The armor consisted of broad Metallic strips ('girth hoops') fastened to internal leather straps. The strips were arranged horizontally on the body, overlapping downwards, and they surrounded the torso in two halves, being fastened at the front and back. The upper body and shoulders were protected by additional strips ('shoulder guards') and breast- and backplates. The form of the armor allowed it to be stored very compactly, since it was possible to separate it into four sections. The fitments that closed the various plate sections together (buckles, lobate hinges, hinged straps, tie-hooks, tie-rings, etc.) were, however, made of brass.
Great for costuming over a tunic and with a cloak. The Lorica Segmentata armor is made of heavy duty 16 ga. carbon steel. Approximately 20 inches from the neck to bottom and will fit up to a 53 inch waist. Brass accents with leather straps
