While in battle the proper body armor was essential to protect one's self from deadly blows to the torso. In the midst of the dark ages breastplates were commonly used to protect the upper torso of the warrior. Leather was the first material that was used in designing the breastplate, while steel breastplates were made later because they offered more protection than the leather breastplates.
