Spartan Warriors in the era of the Peloponnesian War (and probably would not have worn bronze torso armor, and often no torso armor at all). Hoplites seem to have gone from heavier armor to less over the course of the classical period, increasingly relying on their shield. Even during the Persian Wars they mostly would have been wearing textile armor on their torso.

Viking Raiders would only rarely wear torso armor. It would have been mail armor, but the vast majority wore only regular clothing (though they may have worn textile armor, there just is no surviving evidence of it).
