[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.
