    Medium Armor: Scale mail, Splint Mail, Banded mail, Brigantine, and **Chainmail. This also includes leather armor reinforced with steel plating that covers a minimum of 50% of the armor.

    All examples are armor that are flexible, not rigid or restricting.

    So, can I use armor that is rigid? Such as metal armor covering the front and back of my torso?

    Example:

    From the description and photo in that link, I cannot tell if you have met the steel plating is 50% or more of the armor portion of the rule or not. My concern is that the the stitched areas are just the padding they've stitched in and not incorporating hidden steel plates.

    and wow $300???? I have a good idea what the cost is on that and that is serious mark up.

    I mean i'm selling a stainless steel brig (well a coat of plates but it's similarish) that was hand made and could have been made custon to the buyer for the same price, for about half that right now.
    Shop around a little and you can probably find that same piece cheaper or at least something comprable.
