Derived from the leather jerkin, the buff coat is a garment made of cowhide designed to protect the wearer from blades and pistol balls. It may be worn under metal armor to provide additional protection. The buff coat covers the arms, torso, and hips; sleeveless varieties are favored by musketeers and arquebusiers.
