AC164 Kalkriese type 1 lorica segmentata


A new kind of lorica segmentata has been recently found on the Kalkriese battler site (9AD). Before that, the early segmentatae were only known by a few parts.

Our new model is made after this new "type 1" armor. Main differences with the classical Corbridge are the closing by straps and buckles only, brass edges on the plates, and the absence of big articulated shoulder plates, which use was probably not seen at this early time.

Made of 1,2mm iron plates riveted on leather straps, with straps and brass buckles. Brass edges. Ideally used by a 100cm chest perimeter (+/-5cm) guy.
