Breastplates were used for a long time in history because it protects the body’s vital organs without limiting a soldier’s movement. During the Medieval times and Dark Ages, breastplates were worn to protect the upper torso. The first breastplates were made of leather, while steel breastplates were made later because they offered more protection than the leather breastplates.
