Studded leather armor, also known as brigandine,[1][10] was a type of armor used on Toril.

DescriptionEdit

Studded leather armor was made from tough yet flexible leather (unlike leather armor, it was not hardened). It was reinforced with numerous close-set rivets or spikes. Studded leather provided slightly more protection than regular leather armor.[5][11] Each set was fitted with hundreds of rivets.[12]

VariationsEdit

Brigandine
The spacing between the metal rivets in brigandine was smaller, making it a slightly less flexible variant.[1]
Spiked leather
Studded leather with sharp spikes mounted upon its rivets. Typically seen in use by gladiators, barbarians of the North, some hill giants,[2] and battleragers.[9]
