Description[edit | edit source]

Padded armor was made up of several quilted layers of cloth and batting.[4] Padded armor was poorly ventilated and soon became hot. It was known to become fouled with grime and sweat and even infested by fleas and lice.[3]

Usage[edit | edit source]

Being one of the cheapest forms of armor, padded armor was commonly distributed to conscripts in times of war.[5] Padded armor was a common sight in northern Zakhara.[6] The military of Koryo wore a heavy padded armor in order to stay warm in the cold winters.[7]
