Practical yet handsome Roman inspired designs made from only the best materials, that any legionary would be proud to wear.
Cassius was a straight forward man: he enlisted to dedicate his life to the emperor and spent every waking moment serving to the best of his ability. It was difficult to pinpoint exactly when his shift in attitude occurred, and what led to the decision to plot the emperor’s downfall- but when you deal with tyranny day in, day out, the romance of fighting for such a man begins to fade. On the day of the emperor’s assassination, one thing was clear: that day, Cassius was no longer serving the emperor. That day, he was fighting for Rome.
Our “Cassius” collection embodies everything we love about Roman armor and clothing - it is basic, functional, but still beautiful. The sheer amount of technology that the Romans developed is awe-inspiring, which makes it easy to fall in love with such an amazing time period and the artifacts that go with it. Roman clothing and armor is handsome, practical, and also amazingly well documented, which makes our job easier! The Romans had an astute commitment to recording their military tactics, regalia, and life.
Roman legionary armor was easy to construct and provided the most vital amount of protection without weighing down the wearer too much. It was designed to be easily transported and standardized to almost any size so that it could be used again by future soldiers. This same concept applied to a lot of Roman clothing. This approach didn’t by any means make any of their fashion or armor ill-fitting or less attractive, though - the Romans were still undeniably stylish!
As our first collection of ancient era kit, we couldn’t be more proud of “Cassius”. It is the perfect combination of Roman weapons and armor, as well as clothing and accessories. Every single item is crafted with care and designed to look flattering on anyone, with quality materials and attention to detail. So, go on! Embrace the call of war, build your empire. Become “Cassius” and prepare to conquer.

So what was real roman armor?
Real roman armor was usually made out of iron and bronze. Given that we live in the modern world, making armor out of these materials it’s not really practical anymore, which is why we decided to make it from stainless steel with brass accents. These materials are more durable, more readily available, and still, look just as good!

How much did roman armor weigh?
This is a pretty common question, really. The reason it is asked so often is that Roman soldiers often had to carry their kit with them, and people are curious to know exactly how much weight the average soldier would be carrying along with their roman legionary helmet. The answers are between 30-45kg, which is quite a lot! It all adds up when you’re wearing steel, and don’t forget of the crazy weight of the Roman shield as well.
