Lamellar is made from hundreds of small metal plates laced into horizontal rows with successive rows laced together. 

Lamellar originated in Asia and spread to Eastern Europe, Russia and Byzantium.
Viking traders carried Lamellar to Scandanvia from trade with Byzantium and Russia.
Archeological evidence for Viking use of lamellar amour has been found at Gotland and Birka in Sweden which was estimated to have been made in the 10th and 11th century. Numerous Rus finds have also been located at Gnezdovo and Novgorod estimated to have been made during the 10th to 13th century
This lamellar amour is most suitable for re-enactment SCA or LARP personas from Asia, Byzantium and eastern Viking Baltic, Rus areas.

The armour is tightened with leather straps which makes the fit adjustable.
