Medieval Body Armor For Sale
Providing staminal protection to internal organs and bones, cushioning blows and reducing impacts, medieval body armor has become a staple piece of knight harness for any reenactor and medieval fighting enthusiast. It’s vital to match properly, so we make custom size upper body armor to ensure a perfect fit. Take a look at these armours from ArmStreet:
- breastplate and backplate
- Viking body armor
- women’s body armor
- knight’s cuirass
ArmStreet body armors primarily are made of steel and leather, making them easy to clean down after a hard combat. Designed to protect the core against blows, they cover most of a fighter’s torso. Middle ages body armor also include padding gambesons, which work by absorbing the intense energy created by being kicked. Combination of period design and modern technologies makes them essential for fighters.
Going into SCA heavy combat opt for plate cuirasses and brigandines which cover the whole torso, spine and tailbone. Consisting of multiple metal plates attached to the wool or leather base, brigandines are much stronger than chainmail and were widespread among both knights and common soldiers.
There are a lot of options for Battle of the Nations participants as well: take a note of heavy leather Viking armor, steel European breastplates, and Eastern lamellars that cover the kidney area and the floating ribs. Composed of a plurality of small scales, lamellar provides great mobility and can be easily repaired during a break between contests. If you've already tried a plate armor, you’ll probably find them more comfortable. Dented plates can be replaced, so you might not have to replace the whole thing.
Experienced warriors know the value of good body armour, which can mean the difference between comfort and pain. Go edgy with medieval Gothic cuirass or utterly masculine with luxurious Eastern styles, but stay safe no matter what your prefer.
