"Chyudno of styazi in to the Don velikago are ploughed gonfalons to berchati, shine kalantyri of zlacheny" ("Zadonshchina"). Kolontar' - armors without the sleeves of two halves, front and rear, that were being buttoned on arms and sides of cuirassier by iron buckles. Each half from the neck to the belt composed numbers of the large metallic horizontally located plates, fastened by chain armor netting. In belt was fastened chain armor network - hem - to the elbows. The spinal plates of kolontarya were done thinner and it is less than breast. When kolontar' was the part of the ceremonial armors, then, decorated with gold incision, engraving, split ornament, it rose in the price to 1000 rubles - sum, astronomical for the XVII century.
 
The Russian armors, similar to kolontaryu, highly valued in the neighbors of Moscow state. "yes granted prince great, he sent the third to the year of armour; and it walked to the enemies, yes armour lost; and it would grant armour it sent", wrote in Moscow in 1491 the Crimean khan with Mengli- weight, whose request and naive craftiness - best certificate of the high craftsmanship of Russian knights.
