Leather or fabric wear with riveted and sewed metal plates was popular armor defense among warriors of XIV century. Brigandine type armor went in front of plate armor or so called “white armour”. Reinforced by small steel plates brigandine elements were accessible to medieval knights of Western Europe.
Our Brigandine greaves consist of vertical plates. Five narrow plates, two wide plates on the end of each side and two small plate to protect the ankle bones. Wide steel plates formed to meet anatomical shape of shin. This construction makes wearing of Brigandine greaves well comfortable. Armor is completed with two leather straps and steel buckles. We use suede leather + canvas, or fabric + canvas as the covering base material. Brigandine greaves can be made from mild steel, tempered steel or titanium. Variety of colors of covering materials allows you to express your identity. Brigandine greaves make a good set with Brigandine cuisses and Brigandine arms.
This armor is suitable to be used for HMB/IMCF/WMFC buhurt full contact medieval combat.
Please notice, that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
