Akin to Coat Plates, this type of Russian (and surrounding Regions) 14th Century Armor was basically a coat of Chain Mail. The Front (and often Back), featured iron plates either riveted or “pocketed” into place. Made long (to cover the upper thigh, often to the knees), they also protected the entirety of the Wearers arms. Bakhteret Armor was the single most used armor type in Medieval Russia. Many times it would be worn with heavy linen undergarments (or Gambeson) to aid in protection.
