Guy Golan

Is it possible to order a light weight version of this armor? From lighter material perhaps? As I only weight 60 kg myself

ArmStreet Team

Hi Guy, we can make it of hardened spring steel without brass edges. It will be ligher for about 20% in this case, but won't look so beautiful without brass accents. If it works for you, please contact our support team for the price. 

Justin
10 of July 2019

Would it be possible to get black and white for the skirt and gambeson?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Justin, yes we can make the skirt in black color instead of blue. However, the gambeson cannot be made in white or black velvet, sorry. 

Mark

Where would I go to remove the leather covering from the hourglass gauntlets when ordering the entire kit?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Mark, please simply leave this request in the comment to your order at the checkout. 

Jamie

How heavy is this armor set?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Jamie, it is about 38-40 kg with helmet. 

David
22 of April 2019

Could the bascinet be substituted with a salet?

ArmStreet Team

Hi David, yes of course! Please contact our support team with the link to the sallet in question so we could re-calculate the price for you. 

Mark
29 of March 2019

Would it be possible to substitute the greaves in this kit for the gothic knight full wrap greaves? I would like coverage down to sabatons

ArmStreet Team

Hi Mark, yes it should be possible. Do you need the etching and brass on the full rounded greaves? 

Mark
14 of March 2019

Would the Kingmaker sabatons be a good addition to this armor in terms of match and fit?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Mark, yes The Kingmaker sabatons will match this armor set. 

Garth
03 of September 2018

Is it possible to pay the armor off several months or a year?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Garth, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for details. 

Michael
18 of August 2018

Is there a reason that the suit does not come with Sabaton's? Is the suit not supposed to? I am pretty new to plate armour so please educate me :)

ArmStreet

Hi, Michael! Sabatons can be purchased separately here

Darryl
29 of July 2018

Hi guys and gals, could you explain how the leg armor is attached? and do I need to purchase a vest our belt with arming points.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Darryl, it is attached with the help of the arming points to the gambeson. We can simply add leather strings to the armor so you could attach it to your belt, for example. 

Joe
14 of March 2018

Hi. I want to buy the compete kings guard kit but I want to know if you sell the under garments and boots? Also when measuring— do you measure with the undergarments on? Thanks.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Joe, yes of course, we sell gambesons and chausses and boots. If you purchase the padding along with the armor suit in our store, please send us your measurements without undergarment and we will take into account that our padding will be worn. 

Tristan B. Kristan

I have a question, is it possible to "buy" the Armour and pay it off over time or to be mailed the parts of the set of Armour as I pay for them. 

ArmStreet Team

Hi Tristan, yes we can create a payment plan for you. Please contact our support team for details. 

Berry

What thickness is the brass? Im worried it gets dented and damaged fairly quickly.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Berry!

The Brass borders are 1mm thick but they are quite resistant. You
can check a short review of the King`s Guard`s gauntlets right here -

Lachlan
25 of October 2017

Hello! I was just leaving a comment to ask about the chainmail on the helmet, is it riveted or has another method been used? Thank you!

ArmStreet Team

Hi Lachlan, the aventail is butted by default but it can be riveted for $70 extra. 

Geralt
17 of September 2017

Can matching sabatons be made to go with this kit? If so, how much extra would they be?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Geralt! You are most welcome to select any sabatons you like here

Mark Randolph
07 of September 2017

Hello I am wondering if this set could be made in 18g only as I would not be doing hard contact fighting.SCA steel C&T combat only and I would not need a helmet as I already have a perf plate basinet. thank you for your time marcus

ArmStreet Team

Hi Mark, yes we can make it in 18ga steel and without helmet. 

Rose
23 of July 2017

Wondering if its possible to order this set with out the words etched, and without the helm?.. Also is all this SCA approved?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Rose, yes it is possible to order this set with out the words etched, and without the helm. Yes, it is SCA legal. 

Brandon feeg
14 of February 2017

Hi I was wondering if this armour can be made to IMCF regulations and if so how much extra would it cost, thanks!

ArmStreet team

The kit should work for the IMCF except for the cuirass as it doesn`t cover the upper part of the back.

Brandon feeg
09 of January 2017

Hello, I have a follow up question I asked a bit ago if you made custom armour and was wondering when you do dose it have to all be ordered at once? or do you let people order it in two parts as in have the legs and arms made then once they can afford the rest place a second order? Thanks! PS. You customer service is the best out of all similar business I have delt with keep up the great work.

ArmStreet team

Sure, you can order the armour pieces separately. Just let us know which one you need and which custom modifications are requested and we`ll be happy to make everything possible for you. :)

Zachary

I am interested in this set but was wondering if the Kings Guard armour set is rated for the Armored Combat League and if it is combatible with the medieval gambeson.

ArmStreet team

This armour meets SCA and Battle of the Nations standards. We recommend checking if it is legal for ACL, you can find the rules here. We`re ready to give you any info about the armour which is needed.
The model in the photos is wearing our Knight's Gambeson Pourpoint “The King's Guard”, but is should be okay to wear the armour with other gambesons as well.

Patrick
04 of January 2017

How much monies will you take off if the armor set doesn't have etching or brasswork added to the armor?

ArmStreet team

Ordering the set w/o brass and etching, you`ll save 15%, so the total now will be $2812.00 + $325.00 shipping. If that works for you, we`re ready to place the order and send you a
PayPal invoice (PayPal account is not necessary needed, you can pay with your credit card).

Patrick S Gray
02 of January 2017

Hello, I have a couple of questions about this set of armor. 1. Is it strong enough for the SCA fighting? 2. Would you decrease the price for the set if the brass work & armor etching was not included? If so by how much? 3. How long would it take to build this set of armor?

ArmStreet team

1. The armour kit meets SCA armor standards. All of our armor pieces are made of 16 ga cold forged, stainless steel (with some non-critical, small pieces from 18 ga). The bascinet is forged from 2 mm (14 ga) stainless and we offer an option to upgrade to 2.5 mm (12 ga) stainless for $200 extra.
2. If you order the kit w/o brass and etching decorations, you`ll save 15% of the price.
3. Manufacturing time for this armour set is 37-47 days. Shipping normally takes 16-21 days.

Hey, do you guys custom make armour by chance I love your guys work! but am looking for something a bit different then what you offer on your site? Thanks.

ArmStreet team

Thank you! Yes, sometimes we accept custom orders if we have technical ability and a project is interesting. Please, send us more information about what you`d like to get (description, pictures would be great) and we'll check if we can make it.

Sven Kirby

How easy is it to put this on without assistance? Thanks!

ArmStreet team

It may be hard to put on the arms, pauldrons and also the cuirass w/o any assistance, we definitely recommend you to use some help with that.

Jernagen Vuldrick
05 of September 2016

Hey armstreet! I was just wondering what colour leather you guys personally personally think suits the set more in as I'm struggling to decide. I also noticed that your gambeson sells out quickly in the red and, as I want the leather and gambeson to match, I might have to go with the blue. Cheers!

ArmStreet team

We like the original color combination, but as we also like to experiment, we`re sure that all of the colors look great. Depends on what you like more :)

We'd recommend such combinations as Blue&Red, Green&Red, Black&Red.

Justin McCaul
12 of August 2016

Can this be made with a full back piece as well?

ArmStreet team

The cuirass can not be made with a full back plate, sorry.

Connor

What is the sword shown in the gallery and was it custom made or purchasable elsewhere?

ArmStreet team

The sword in the gallery is made by us, but we don't produce swords for sale to date, sorry.

Blake
21 of January 2016

Is the chain mail for the helmet comes with it or is it separately?

ArmStreet team

Yes, the chain mail (aventail) is included.Welcome!

Blake
21 of January 2016

Were can I get the frog in "The kings guard" armor set and sheath?

ArmStreet team

To date the sheath and frog are not available on the site, sorry.

Greetings from Hungary - I am interested in several of your products, including Medieval armor “The King's Guard”. I would like to know if you have a EU representative to make a purchase simple, especially Custom bureaucracy. Best Regards, AvR

ArmStreet team

Bas Smit

Do you also make curved visors for the bascinet?

ArmStreet team

Yes, the bascinet with curved visor will cost +20% extra.

Bas Smit
03 of September 2015

Dear Sir/Madam, I have a couple of questions, I am thinking of ordering the kings guard set but since I am a student I cant pay in one installment. What kinds of payment plans do you offer? Is it possible to replace the houndskull visor with curved bascinet visor? What kinds of material can you choose for the armor? Thank you for your time! My kind regards, Bas Smit

ArmStreet team

We can split the total value of your order into two payments.
Yes, the bascinet with curved visor will cost +20% extra.
Cold-rolled (mild) and stainless steel of 18 ga (1 mm) and 16 ga (1.5 mm) for the armor and 14 ga (2 mm) for the helmets.

Jason
11 of August 2015

Should buffer my measurements if I plan on wearing a chainmaille shirt under this kit?

ArmStreet team

Please measure yourself over your chainmaille shirt. To get the best fit, you can also provide your actual body measurements (without the chainmaille/padding clothes, just over your usual underwear) in a comment to your order.

Tina
10 of August 2015

is it possible to model the cuirass to give it a more elegant female look for woman who wants to purchase this product?

ArmStreet team

The shape of the breastplate cannot be changed, it cannot be made slim-waisted or emphasize the breasts. Otherwise it will lose its protective properties.

Conrad von Zollern
28 of July 2015

Very interested in ordering this harness, but want the pourpoint "The King's Guard" which appears to be out of stock in several sizes. Will the pourpoint be available again in larger sizes?

ArmStreet team

Restocking time frames vary, while we cannot provide any accurate information when the larger sizes will be back in stock, sorry. Please note, the pourpoint can always be made to order in regular sizes.

Ulf der Jaeger
17 of July 2015

What all is included in the full harness kit? I can see a lot of the pictures included but not a listing of specific pieces.

ArmStreet team

The King’s Guard armour comes with: bascinet helmet with two visors, cuirass, fauld skirt, spauldrons, arms, legsgreaves and gauntlets. Thanks for being interested in our production!

Sven
29 of May 2015

If I were interested in this armour would it be possible for me to pay in installments? The full price is a little much in one go.

ArmStreet team

Yes, we can split the total value of your order into smaller parts, please contact us at contact@armstreet.com.

Jarl Jon Makarson of Sweden
11 of April 2015

I was wondering, if I were to purchase this kit in the future at some time, would I be able to substitute the houndskull bascinet for your visored sugarloaf helm for at or around the same price? (Also, while they're from the same approximate time period, do you think it would even suit the rest of the kit well? I'm having trouble envisioning it!)

ArmStreet team

Bascinet can be replaced with the Sugarloaf helm, no extra. Technically Sugarloaf helm should work well with this suit, but please note that in this case your neck left unprotected.

Charles
31 of March 2015

Would it be possible to have a hybrid version of the two options on the gauntlets? I love the aesthetic of both sets but I think the decision to match the gauntlets with the fauld makes sense but I like the etching that you do around the wrist. Would it be possible to get leather up to the wrist then polished and etched etc below?

ArmStreet team

Yes, such combination of etching and leather covering can be made upon request for $35 extra.

Chris
22 of January 2015

Hello! This is a great set. Could it be made out of 18 gauge stainless, with the same helm it currently has and the elbows, knees, and gauntlets made from 16 gauge stainless? If so how much would it cost then?

ArmStreet team

18 ga (1 mm) steel is too thin for this kit, sorry.

Sean Barfoot
26 of November 2014

Hi there, I love this style of harness but was wondering whether it could be done with out any of the etching and, if so, how much it would cost? Thanks!

ArmStreet team

Can be made w/o etching, you'll save about 15% approximately.

fernando
22 of October 2014

hey guys are the legs and greaves included with this suit? if so how do i send the messurements? also is the gambeson included as well?

ArmStreet team

Yes, the legs (cuisses, knees, greaves) are included. Please take the measurements using our guide, then put them in the appropriate size fields in the order form.

The gambeson is not included, it can be purchased separately.

Eli
17 of September 2014

Does the set include the belt, or does the belt need to be purchased separately? Thanks!

ArmStreet team

The belt is not included, but can be purchased separately here.

corey
14 of September 2014

Hey guys and girls, what would it cost to get the kings armor set in cold rolled steel? thanks

ArmStreet team

Yes, but please note that etched mild steel becomes rusty very fast. We can make it in mild steel w/o etching.
Please contact us at contact@armstreet.com for more details.

Tyler Coombes
16 of July 2014

is this armor approved for battle of nations or or other full contact reenactment. are there any matching sabatons for this set? thank you!

ArmStreet team

Yep, according to BN official rules it should be legal.
To date there are no matching sabatons, sorry.

Josh
27 of June 2014

Can a full back plate be ordered with this suit? I like everything but would require a full back plate. Also, can you list the full weight of the suit? Thanks.

ArmStreet team

This cuirass cannot be made with full back plate.
Weigh is about 33.5-35 kg (74-77 lbs), depending on your measurements.

Allison Keeley
09 of May 2014

Hi there! Out of curiosity; Would there be able to have a custom set? If so how much would this set be without a helm or Cuirass but with a Gambesons & armour leg padding?

ArmStreet team

Yes, please specify which gambeson you'd like to order.

John Metzgar
23 of April 2014

Hello, I am interested in the Kings Guard set of armor, however I do not want the extra bar grill visor and I was wondering if you could make the visor more of a German design, more of a klappe visor rather than your current design. If so, what would the cost change to? Thank you,

ArmStreet team

Klappe visor can be made w/o etched brass decorations only, please contact us at contact@armstreet.com.

Albert
01 of April 2014

Would it be possible to have a substitute helmet etched and boardered to match the set instead of the bacinet? Perhaps one that already comes in an etched version?

ArmStreet team

Yes, please specify which kind of helmet you prefer.

Dave
25 of March 2014

I wish you had a spanish coller type of gorget that matched this armor.

Eleanor of Berwyk
16 of January 2014

OMG this is such a beautiful piece of work!

Ratbert
11 of January 2014

The underarmor gabeson padding linked does not seem to match the length and stitching as the pne shown warned by the model for the King's guard armor. If one wanted to get all the parts for the King's guard armor over time, does one simply specify that the gabeson is for the King's guard armor and not the one shown in the "related items" link? Also, can there be a more detailed, complete and accurate breakdown of all the parts with weblinks to assemble the King's guard armor? and if any parts are not available directly from Armstreet where might one get the piece?

ArmStreet team

Gambeson is available in the store - Pourpoint “The King's Guard”.
Here is full The King's Guard collection, welcome!
