"Scale mail armor was made of layers of rounded metal scales that overlapped each other in a cascade, something like a covering of overlapping leaves. This particularly protected the wearer from both missiles and hand weapons. A blow against scale mail armor was partially deflected and layers of scales absorbed much of the energy of the blow. Scale mail armor was an improvement over leather."
