Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[]

A piece of armor made of leather and cloth that has been covered with metal on the inside. Every piece of metal incorporated into this armor was cut precisely to fit each part it composes perfectly, a design that makes it resemble scales. This provides both durability and freedom of movement, something greatly appreciated by soldiers who have to travel to the battlefield on foot. Due to the complexity of its design, the brigandine takes quite a long time to produce.
