Historical or Fantasy Leather

A little chat about historical versus fantasy leather armor

      Love how he goes into that more or less what is behind him is total fantasy, not just because it's Orcish. Even more thrilled that he debunks "studded" leather armor. the "studs" are riviets showing through the leather cover over a metal armor like a coat of plates or brigandine. There is very very little leather armor in extant pieces. We have leather belts, shoes puches sheaths out the yin yang comparatively to leather armor. Why?? Because in medieval economies leather isn't really all that cheap. And even when used like the curie it was mostly as a reinforcement of mail or a way to mount bits of metal in addition to the lethar. It's MUCH more cost effective to make lamanate fabirc based armors for lower class troops like archers, i think he mentions that too. Good vid
