I would like to start assembling a set of crusader armor.
However, due to over-dramatization of such armor, its hard to find historical details on the armor.
If anyone would be able to help,
I would like to know what is the historically correct armor of a crusader.

Most specifically a late 12th century to early 13th century Templar armor.

Did they wear any sort of plate other than the helm?
Did they use gauntlets?
Steel boots or leather foot wear?
etc.

Thanks for the help!

Late 12th to early 13th century is actually very simple. Mail, head to toe. Integrated mail mittens, integrated coif, mail chausses. Aketon underneath the mail, transitional helmet with face mask or nasal. No plate of any kind yet.
