The "domaru" was light armaments which the common fighter who ranks second to "oyoroi" used. Although there are no sleeves and the "choyo" was about the shoulder, when set to in the later half of Kamakura era, it came to be used as a figure with which the upper samurai also attached big sleeves to "domaru", and equipped it fully. The "choyo" was used for "kyubi" of "oyoroi", and the position of "sendan" instead of it. This "domaru" is called "moegi-itokata-shiroodoshi." The "habaki", the "suneate" for the legs, the "yukake" for the hands, "kote" for the arms, the leather tabi and the "midare-waraji" at foot. The warrior in the photo has a short sword and the "hirumaki" long sword at the waist.
