Senpet Chain Shirt

The Senpet Chain Shirt was a Senpet Light Armor, with few use by the Senpet Legionnaire, who preferred to expose their bare chests instead to risk dehydration in the Burning Sands. They only wore them before a battle against a powerful army. It protected against edged weapons, but was completely inefficient against arrows or spears. It was formed by interlaced circle chains sewed over a quilted waistcoat. [1]

Appearance Edit

The chain was more concentrated in the shoulders and chest, and lighter below the chest. It was light and barely impeded movement, covering the trunk of the body, leaving the arms and legs unprotected. This made the armor much easier to carry, and were usually wore by the Senpet Charioteers. [2]
