Believed to have been introduced in the ranks of the Roman Army during the first century A.D. and widely used at the height of the Roman Empire. Our replica, designed by Luca Giampadi, is superbly made of 18 gauge steel. It is closely copied from a type of Lorica found in Newstead, Scotland, that dates from the second century A.D. This armor is quite flexible and allows plenty of freedom of movement. Fits chest sizes from 42" to 46".

    Excellent reproduction in design. As with the originals lorica segmentata are prone to rust, not only because of the mild steel construction but because of the galvanic effect between the two metals: steel and the brass or, more properly bronze, fittings. Requires regular maintenance!
