Both pieces of this armour are named Yak-hide armour, for the legs see Yak-hide armour (legs)

The Yak-hide armour body is a piece of member's only armour. Initially after release, there were no requirements to wield the yak-hide body. Currently, a minimum Defence level of 20 is required to wear the armour.[1] Yak-hide armour can be obtained either by using the Crafting skill or from trading with another player.

To make the yak-hide body the player must first have started The Fremennik Isles quest. The player needs 2 cured yak-hides (obtained from killing yaks and then tanned by Thakkrad Sigmundson), a needle and some thread. Creating a yak-hide body requires level 46 Crafting and grants the player 32 experience.

Despite the fact that the stats for this armour are not particularly high, it seems to provide better defence against the trolls of Neitiznot and Jatizso than armour with much higher stats does.
