One of the greatest flaws facing armor are large numbers of vulnerable points. Although no suit of armor can completely protect a wearer, some craftsmen make sure to reinforce the armor near vital organs, provide flaps and panels that block attacks against exposed flesh, and generally seal up any vulnerabilities that could lead to a devastating attack. Any suit of armor with this item quality grants an additional +2 armor bonus against attacks made to confirm critical hits. Restriction: May only be applied to armor.
