This helps armor better protect the hip joint in combat, especially when you are bending or wrestling. Plates are mounted with rivets of three thing. Such design is historical and was used in the Middle Ages. To keep rivets from tearing the cloth, we add leather softening. The base is made of a layer of wool and lasting tarpaulin, glued together, for greater durability.
