Hard Armor Shoulder Guard (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Hard Armor Shoulder Guard
A hard armor shoulder guard is made of bulky plates of hardened ceramics. The armor is intended to provide full protection against everything up to and including armor-piercing ammunition fired from military rifles. It protects the arm from the shoulder down to the elbow.
Partial armor only grants its AC bonus if you are wearing light or no armor. If you are wearing only one piece of partial armor, you are still considered to be wearing your base armor type (e.g. no armor or light armor). If you are wearing two or three pieces of partial armor, you are considered to be wearing the heaviest type of partial armor worn (e.g. medium or heavy armor). You cannot wear four or more pieces of partial armor.
