Neck Guard

Weta (thanks to Lalaith) - Elven Archer Doll box- Screensnap of Haldir

The description of it from the Alleycatscratch website sounds very much like what us seen worn around the neck.

"The armor "skirt" looks like a below-the-knee scale mail hauberk split for riding, but it's thousands of fingernail-sized pieces of silver leather patterned like fine lizardskin and sewn to a backing."

New pictures Lalaith has provided allow a comparison of the neck and the skirt. They are the same! See the skirt on it's own page.
