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".
No Legionnaire would be caught without his leg armor. These detailed greaves are fit for an officer. Hand formed from steel, plated in brass and antiqued. Measuring 15-1/2" long, they are lined in suede with thick leather thong lacing.
