1Weight figures are for armor sized to fit Medium characters. Armor fitted for small characters weighs half as much, and armor fitted for Large characters weighs twice as much.
2When running in agile half-plate, you may still move quadruple your speed, instead of the normal triple speed for heavy armor.

These bonuses stack between armor and shield only.
Armor is armor bonus.
Shield is shield bonus.
Depending on the damage reduction gained from other items/abilities/bonuses/sources, the damage reduction does not stack. The greater bonus is used.
As a guideline, normal rules for armor bonus stacking will apply.
These rules only apply if D&D 3.5 or Pathfinder are being used.
