Polyplate

Polyplate is flexible armor composed of interlocking scales that protects its wearer against trauma, absorbing blows and distributing the force across a wide area to lessen its impact. By default, the armor protects against bludgeoning damage, providing DR against that damage equal to half the armor’s item level. As a move action, a creature wearing polyplate can swipe a limb across the armor, changing its DR to protect against piercing or slashing damage, or back to bludgeoning. Polyplate is also highly adaptable, easily incorporating armor upgrades.
