    The thing in question is a decorative bit of fabric (sometimes with an emblem on it) that hangs over a breastplate and down past the waist, as seen here: Protector's Armor

    I could swear I knew the name of it before, but now I can't remember and it's driving me nuts. :(

    I would call it a tabbard, but there may be a more specific name you are looking for.

    That is a tabard.

    "a coarse sleeveless garment worn as the outer dress of medieval peasants and clerics, or worn as a surcoat over armor"

    Thank you for the quick reply. Tabard was the word I was looking for.
