Lorica Segmentata- In Pictures



Finally got around to trying out my son's Roman Legionary kit....the primary piece being a reproduction of a Lorica Segmentata. I recall the Romans used a tunic version of a gambeson(called a Subarmalis I believe) but any kind of padded shirt(especially across the load bearing shoulders) makes it quite comfortable.
