SRD Talk:Studded Leather Armor
From D&D Wiki
Presumably, this is boiled leather armor with metal studs for extra protection. There is no entry for it in Wikipedia.--Dmilewski 09:45, 15 January 2007 (MST)
- Studded Leather Armor never existed IRL. The studs you see in artworks are rivets which are used to hold metal plates, Brigandine for example was exceedingly common and from the outside looks a lot like what you would imagine studded leather would look like (when in reality it's a kind of lamaler iron/steel plates, they are just on the inside rather then out). Iron historically as of the iron age was exceedingly common at least for smaller works, as such leather as a whole (which is horribly bad armor) was rarely used as a standalone armour but instead as a backing or supporting material for metal.18.104.22.168 17:52, 16 April 2014 (MDT)
Leather can be made of adamantine? I guess the studs could...but still... -- Flession 11:35, 24 July 2007 (MDT)
