Quality:
Bronze armor is cheap, iron armor is good, and steel armor is fine. Listed armor is of good quality.
Cheap armor is uncomfortable and prone to breaking, has an additional -1 penalty to Swim/Stealth/Climb, but costs 40% of the listed price.
Fine armor has a +1 DR, is 25% less likely to be damaged by blows, and costs 3 times the listed price.
Very fine armor has a +2 DR, is 50% less likely to be damaged by blows, and costs 6 times the listed price.

Notes:
The cost, attack adjustments, PD, and DR values have been modified from the original rules.
Listed weight is for a complete suit of armor - torso, arms, and legs. Barding weight is for draft and war horses, reduce by 20% for other horses.
A gambeson should be worn beneath any armor heavier than leather, otherwise the DR is reduced by 1. The cost is already included with platemail.
Corselet is a partial breastplate and backpiece together, that covers the upper body only. It costs the same as a breastplate, which gives full vertical protection in the front only. A breastplate with a backpiece costs an additional 30%.
Light Scale is made from overlapping rounded triangles of heavy leather. Scale Mail is made from overlapping rounded triangles of metal.
Brigandine is made from rectangles of metal attached to a leather backing.
Augmented mail is chainmail woven with leather.
Double mail is made from a more complex interlink of chainmail.
