Although the thick and uncomfortable hair shirt impeded the wearer's agility, it was thick enough to provide a high degree of protection against attacks to the wearer. Some later, cheaper versions caused no significant impediment, but only provided slight protection.
These hair shirts were typically only fashioned and worn by the followers of Ilmater. They preferred to use the shirt's healing power to alleviate the suffering of others.
