There are a lot of Japanese armors in different museums that is why present example if not outstanding but two Philippine armors are real rarity. So, you are going to see two so called Jolo Armors used by the Moslems of southernmost Philippine Islands. They were defensive jackets made out of iron plates connected with the chainmail. On of these two armors belonged to Datto Daniel of Southern Chiefs killed in battle against Spaniards landed to Jolo Island on February 27, 1851.
