Description

Armor, worn as a shirt. The shirt piece extends down to the waist. Attached to the back of the shirt and to the arm straps is a large flat back piece. From this backing, a flap extends around each side of the shirt. At the center of the end of each flap is a triangular loop made of rope wrapped similarly to the hems of the piece but with no design. Rope ties the flaps together, extending across the front of the shirt piece.
