And we have trial outfits you can borrow for the first seasons. First off is clothing; You need a wool Tunica, a linen undertunica (Subucula), a wool cape (Paenula) and pants (Braccae). These items are something you can make yourself (with proper guiding). Next you will be needing things in leather like footwear (Caligae) and a belt (Balteus).

Next item on the list is armament; Chainmail (Lorica Hamata) or plate armor (Lorica Segmentata), sword (Gladius) dagger (Pugio) and a helmet (cassis).
