Plate Mail is a piece of Body Armor in Diablo II. It is a piece of heavy armor, and a significant upgrade in terms of defense over most forms of lighter armor, though this comes at the cost of higher strength requirements, as well as a 10% penalty to stamina drain rate and movement speed.

Plate Mail is a piece of armor that was constructed similarly to chain mail. Small overlapping metal bars were linked together with chain links and worn over a leather or cloth backing. The result was an armor that was quite flexible compared to splint mail, but was much heavier than chain or splint mail. The inventory picture, however, is actually quite similar to lamellar armor where the plates are attached to the backing, as indicated by the rivets on the plates.
