This is an early form of what later knights would turn into metal coats of plated armor. This long coat is made of high-grade suede and has over 120 heavy leather plates riveted to it. With slits up the front, back and sides, it makes this perfect for fighting. Lace-up sides makes this a very adjustable garment. It can also be worn with any of our mail shirts, for added protection. Measures 45" in overall length. One size.
A fitting addition to any Legionnaires armor arsenal, this Lorica Segmentata is made of fully articulated harness grade leather. The movement when wearing it is truly amazing and allows you to swing your weapons efficiently. It is adjustable with leather ties.
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. Although it never completely replaced the mail (Lorica Hamata, #300398) and scale armor (Lorica Squamata), for the modern mind the Lorica Segmentata typifies the Roman soldier. Our replica is superb, made by Windlass Steelcrafts® 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".
