What kind of armor did the Prophet (sawa) use in his time? And Imam Ali (عليه السلام) at the time of Siffin? And Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) at the time of Karbala? Are there any descriptions?

 

(sorry if it's not in the right category)

The holy month of Ramadan

Dua Jawshan Kabeer

To be recited on 19th,21st,23rd of Ramadan 

It has been mentioned in the book, Balad al-Amin and the Misbah of Kafa`mi that Imam `Ali ibn al-Husain Sayyid as-Sajjidin (prayers be upon him) related from his father from his grandfather the Prophet of Allah (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) that this supplication was taught by the Angel Jibra’il (prayers be upon him) to the Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) during one of the battles.It was in one of the wars that the Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) had taken part in which he had a very heavy and expensive coat of armor on to protect himself. It is related that the coat was so heavy that it was hurting the body of the Prophet (prayers of Allah be upon him and his family). In this state,the Angel Jibra’il (prayers be upon him) came to the Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) and said: “O’ Muhammad! Your Lord conveys his salutations to you and has said to take this coat of armor (Jawshan) and to recite it as this is a protection for you and your Ummah.

Most likely chainmail if one was wealthy enough to afford it.

The Quran mentions this about Prophet Daud(as):

وَعَلَّمۡنَـٰهُ صَنۡعَةَ لَبُوسࣲ لَّكُمۡ لِتُحۡصِنَكُم مِّنۢ بَأۡسِكُمۡۖ فَهَلۡ أَنتُمۡ شَـٰكِرُونَ 

(21:80)

And We taught him the craft of making coats of armor for you, to protect you in your wars. Will you then be grateful?
