Antique leather Subarmalis with Pteruges
This wearable protecting armour is made from robust cowhide leather. This type of armour was worn under the lorica and corresponded to the medieval gambeson. The subarmalis protected the wearer from chafing of the armor. It was padded, e.g. at the shoulders, which made the weight more bearable.
Delivery includes breast and back adorned with 6 leather straps for size adjustment. The leather has seams at all the edges.
The Pteryges, latinized Pteruges, were a widely used piece of clothing or armor in ancient times. It consisted of a series of strips of textile or leather, often also studded with metal. As part of the armor of Greek hoplites and Roman armour, several partially overlapping rows of textile or leather strips covered the shoulders and part of the upper arms and hung below the breastplate like a skirt over the lower abdomen until just above the knees.
