[Loch-Ruadh] Rapier Armor Info Needed

Linens work great.  The material used must be puncture resistant.  We have a 
punch tester if you want to test some fabric.  The fabric must be washed and 
dried before testing.  I have a pattern for a hood, but I have never made a 
doublet.  I do know that people who use doublets have their armor underneath 
the shirt because a doublet can not serve as armor.  It does not cover the 
armpit and 4-6 inches down the arm.
