Hey! I'm trying to go for more of a plain wandering knight look. Is there any way I could have this made without the etchings in the leather? Thanks!!

ArmStreet Team

Hi Kendra, yes of course, we can make it without embossing for you. Please simply leave this request in the comment to your order at the checkout.

Can this be ordered without the embossed Celtic knot designs? Also, could it be fitted for a man?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Henry! yes, it can be made without the embossed Celtic knot designs, but it cannot be made for a man, unfortunately.

How functional is it? I do HEMA longsword. I need something functional and wonderful

ArmStreet team

Yes, basically all leather armor pieces are functional and have been used throughout Early Middle ages as inexpensive type of armor. But as the leather we use isn't hardened (boiled or waxed), metal armor is still preferable for HEMA, you can look through our body armor here -
https://armstreet.com/store/body-armour/. Some of the steel cuirasses can be adjusted for a woman, just let us know which one do you like.

Hello, I was hoping you could clarify the thickness of the armor in millimeters. I understand that the leather is around 8-9 oz thick (3,4-5 mm's). Does this thickness vary based on the different pieces/areas of the set? Would it be possible to create all the pieces of the set at 5mm's in thickness and still retain its functionality? The only reason I am being so pedantic is that I plan to use this in Swordcraft LARP events. The rule book of Swordcraft states armor can only be classed as 'medium' if it is "thick rigid leather plate (at least 5mm thick)". On a side note the leather Shieldmaiden design is absolutely magnificent and your team should be commended for their efforts! :) Regards, Kira.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Kira! Our leather is about 3-4 mm thick and we do not have a thicker one, sorry. The thickness is amost the same on the whole set.

Medieval armor — Leather Women's Armor “Shieldmaiden” I am wondering if this comes in sizes larger than XL as my chest size is about 2" larger than the XL and waist is about 1" larger Thanks Delaney

ArmStreet Team

Hi Delaney! Yes, we can make the armor larger for you. Please contact our support team for more details.

I'm still drooling over this armor. :) I would like to have the whole set, but I can't afford it all at once; if I buy the corset first, would it be possible to purchase the pauldrons and tassets separately in the future? Would the leather still match? Also, would you recommend black or brown? Which one would better show the embossed pattern? Thank you for your help, and your beautiful creative pieces!

ArmStreet Team

Hi Stefanie! You may order whole set at once and pay it in parts. This way, the color of the leather parts will match for sure. Brown leather shows the embossing better.

Whan is the soonest I can have the Leather Women's Armor “Shieldmaiden” made and shipped to Colorado in the United States. Ideally if I could have it in early February that would be great. Please let me know as soon as is convenient! Thank you!

ArmStreet Team

Hi Aaron! Any order can be rushed upon request for some extra charge. Please contact our support team for more details.

I just wanted to say what a good choice you have made with the model for this collection - I could really believe that she can use that spear! Can completely see her being part of a shield wall on the Vikings tv show :)

I was wandering if these leather pauldrons could be sold separately. If this can not be done then can there be a new leather pauldron set coming soon?

ArmStreet team

The pauldrons separately cost $199 + $28 shipping. If this works for you, we can send an invoice for the order directly to your PayPal email.

What is the thickness of the leather? Is it possible to purchase the pattern?

ArmStreet team

The leather is 8-9 oz thick (3,5-4 mm).

We do not share or sell our patterns, even for non-commercial use, sorry.

I'm normally the low side of a L, but I'd be wearing it over a gambeson. Should I order a L or a XL?

ArmStreet team

Please provide your chest and waist measurements 1) taken over the gambeson and 2) taken over your usual underwear, so we could assist you with choosing the right size. Thank you!

This Looks Awesome would like to see something similar in a male version with the shoulders/arms and some thighs and greaves. Maybe perhaps with some mail in parts too would look bad ass.

Is this SCA Combat-Legal?

ArmStreet team

Yep, should be legal as a torso armor when worn with a thick padding (according to the official SCA armor requirements, listed in the Marshal's Handbook).
