Brigandine type armor – it’s an armor composed of the steel plates riveted to the cloth or leather. Such design was really popular and common not only in medieval Europe. Obviously it was much easier (and cheaper as well) to find the pieces of iron or steel than craft the flat sheet of metal. The images of brigandine type spaulders can be find on numerous paintings and manuscripts of the XV century. For example, we see the army equipped with brigandine spaulders on a medieval art masterpiece: “The Adoration of the Magi” c. 1450, by Jean Fouquet (1420-1480).
Our Brigandine Spaulders consist of a round dished plate that covers the shoulder joint and three curved lames. Metal elements are riveted to the base material. It can be fabric + canvas or suede leather + canvas for your choice. We use canvas as the lining for the best durability and long lasting of the shell covering material. The wide range of colors gives you the possibility to create your unique style. If you would like the Brigandine spaulders to be made in different colors (as seen on the photos) – just send us an email with your order.
This shoulder protection is suitable for use in HMB, IMCF, SCA medieval combat. See options below to choose the preferred material for the metal elements and shell covering.
Please notice, that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
