DO MARU
=======

Oriental armours of scale construction that have no hinges and open 
under the right arm are called do maru. Their comfort and ease of wear
and use has replaced the o-yoroi partially for serious combat.

The do, or cuirass, is the largest and most visible part of any given 
armour. As such, it really sets the feel for the suit. In fact, it is 
the design of the do that gives an armour its name, be it a yokohagi 
ni-mai do gusoku ("horizontally rivetted clamshell cuirass armour") or 
a go-mai dangaie haramaki do gusoku ("armour with a five-sectional 
cuirass with two stepped, different lacing styles, opening up the 
back").
