Defrex Hide

Made from the hide of a ferocious mammal, this light armor is popular among vesk but less often worn by other races. Tanned stretches of the creature’s thick hide are stitched together with metal wires, and the suits are reinforced with metal studs or scales. Even juvenile defrex hide has layers of cartilaginous fibers that resist tearing, allowing for basic defrex hide. Adult defrex hide contains osteoderms that can deflect high-speed projectiles. Chemical treatments and modern materials can reinforce the hide to an even stronger degree.

Dermal Plating: A dermal plating augmentation can be installed in defrex hide armor, taking up one upgrade slot. The augmentation’s level must be equal to or lower than the armor’s item level.
