Breastplate

Source Core Rulebook pg. 275
Price 8 gp; AC Bonus +4; Dex Cap +1; Check Penalty -2; Speed Penalty -5 ft.
Strength 16; Bulk 2; Group Plate; Traits
Though referred to as a breastplate, this type of armor consists of several pieces of plate or half‑plate armor (page 276) that protect the torso, chest, neck, and sometimes the hips and lower legs. It strategically grants some of the protection of plate while allowing greater flexibility and speed.

Armor Specialization Effects

Source Core Rulebook pg. 275
Certain class features can grant you additional benefits with certain armors. This is called an armor specialization effect. The exact effect depends on which armor group your armor belongs to, as listed below. Only medium and heavy armors have armor specialization effects.

Plate: The sturdy plate provides no purchase for a cutting edge. You gain resistance to slashing damage equal to 1 + the value of the armor’s potency rune for medium armor, or 2 + the value of the armor’s potency rune for heavy armor.
