"Leather armor is the lightest armor a character can wear. While leather provides less protection than chain or plate armor, it also slows your character down the least. Leather armor skill increases the protection offered by leather armor. As with all armors, Expert and master ranking both reduce the amount the armor slows you down."
- Normal: +1 Armor Class per skill point.
- Expert: Recovery penalty reduced.
- Master: Recovery penalty eliminated.
To learn master leather, characters need ten ranks in the skill.
