kavaca Denotes a ‘ corselet * or ‘ breastplate ’ in the Atharva­veda and later. There is nothing to show whether it was made of metal, but that it was so is quite possible (see Varman). The Atharvaveda refers to a ‘ corselet-strap ’(kavaca-pāśa), which may point to a linen corselet such as those known to Herodotus.
