Review of: Lorica Segmentata

Well, it is substantial. The delivery box on my front porch was so heavy I had to wrestle it inside my house. Four heavy and tricky pieces inside the box. The instructions eventually said that I'd need a second pair of hands to assemble it, which turned out to be true. But it does look impressive on its stand in my living room on a wooden bench next to The Eagle armor I purchased a few years ago. I'm glad I got them both.
