leather armor

Recommended Posts

Manual of Arms says you need armor 3/16" thick. How heavy of a leather do you need to typically achieve that? What would that translate to in Novitas armor points? Thanks.

12oz Leather. This would constitute for 2 point armor in Novitas.

Technically, yes, 12oz leather.

 

In reality, though, 12oz leather is just going to average 3/16", and will often go below that - making it illegal.

 

If you're making leather armor, buy a 13-15oz hide.

Dave is very right on this.

If you remember my white armor that made me look like a storm trooper from a couple years back, I ordered 12oz hide from Tandy and it ended up being closer to 9oz in a lot of areas. Made me a sad panda.
