Roman Soldiers at the time of the Emperor Hadrian wore forms of chain mail, scale armour and segmented armour mounted on leather or linen.

Chain mail armour offered the most protection and was the most flexible - an important consideration when fighting a battle.

A skirt, or kilt made of strips of leather plated with metal offered protection for a soldiers legs and allowed flexibility and freedom of movement in battle.

Roman Soldiers at the time of the Emperor Hadrian wore military sandals to protect their feet. These were called "caligae". The "caligae" were well-ventilated, strong leather sandals with leather straps.

They had iron hob-nails protruding through the sole for extra grip and to be more hard-wearing.

Later, in the Roman Empire a form of military boot was worn.

Cloaks and capes were worn by Roman Soldiers. A lacerna, was a comfortable cloak that could be worn by soldiers over the top of a tunic.

A military cape at first called trabea, then sagum, was much like a lacerna, but made of heavier material.

Finally, a Roman Soldier would have worn an iron helmet into battle to protect his head and neck.

They wore armor over something... So just a normal toga with armor on top. Now, seriously, how in the world could anyone go into battle wearing a toga? Those things were made for standing and moving very sedately, not for the rigorous movements of battle. Togas were formal masculine wear. In battle the soldier would wear his armor over a quilted under tunic called a subarmalis.

When going to war, the Roman army would wear their uniforms which consisted of a military tunic, their armor of various types, depending on the time of the war, and they would carry their weapons and shields. One thing that was rather unique, was that the Roman soldier always went into battle wearing all his military decorations.

What color togas did Roman emperors wear?

The Romans were well aware of various fabric dyes. But, they DID NOT dye their togas. The toga was an off white woolen garment. Children, senators and the emperor could have a purple stripe along the edges, but that was all. The only variation of the toga's color was when a man was running for public office. He would then lighten and whiten his toga with powdered chalk as a symbol of his purity of intentions.
