Whether a novice or a veteran you rely on solid armour to protect you. Epic Armoury’s RFB Veteran Armour is an elegant leather cuirass designed to protect your torso from harm. The armour is constructed from chrome-tanned split leather and carefully stitched around the edges to create a simple yet aesthetic design with lines suggesting a slim waist and broad shoulders. Secure it tightly over the chest and abdomen using the four sturdy leather straps – each riveted with decorative brass studs – and brass buckles. The strong leather lacing at the flanks allows you to further adjust the fit if needed
Hemmed with additional soft split leather to keep it from deforming with excessive wear, this armour will withstand any LARP abuse, you might force on it. The cuirass matches our Veteran Greaves and Bracers, but has a distinct, neutral style that will fit with almost any combination of costuming in the medieval and renaissance eras. Wear it over chainmail or a padded gambeson, or - for a more casual look - over a tunic or doublet, when you embark on your next adventure.
Inspired by “brigandine” armour from the Middle Ages, but lighter without the usual metal plates riveted into the armour
Inspired style came into wide use during the 15th century
