"Exotic armors" from Oriental Adventures for 5e

In the Amedian, Olman, and Touv peoples thread, I mentioned:
Something interesting in my Hold of the Sea Princes campaign has been how to account for the tropical climate, particularly heat and humidity. IMC, most people who wear armor in the Hold prefer leather or studded leather. A handful of warriors wear "exotic" armors like leather scale, brigandine, and lamellar (originally presented in 1e's Oriental Adventures).

Here are the game stats that I developed for them:

“Exotic” Medium Armors

Leather Scale, costs 20 gp, provides AC 13 + Dex modifier (max 2), and weights 20 lbs.

Brigandine, costs 50 gp, provides AC 14 + Dex modifier (max 2), and weights 25 lbs.

Lamellar, costs 100 gp, provides AC 15 + Dex modifier (max 2), and weights 35 lbs.
