About Leather armor

The best samples of multi-layer leather body armor were not so strong as metal, but they weighed more and period of use was small. Skin quickly banned and wiped out. But leather armor also had a positive sides, because of its viscosity leather armor was a good protection  against arrows. The alternation in the armor of the boiled leather and rawhide gave very good protection against arrows, chopping and stabbing hits.

The weight of leather armor varies from a few kg to twenty or even thirty killograms. For all its merits, the leather armor did not protect at all from the impact-crushing action weapons, and could also be destroyed by several strong hits of a cutting weapon, for example, a two-handed sword. For some time, leather armor continued to be used as part of the armor or as an under armor, sometimes leather chausses were worn as an additional leg protection in the absence of chainmail armor.
