The classic Brigandine – hardened plated armor overlayed by a textile outer shell. A symbol of chivalry, the Brigandine was a fashion statement in addition to a warrior’s garb. It was often covered with velvet with matching arms, and was constructed with functional, yet decorative rivets. During the XIII-XIV centuries the brigandine was a typical knight’s armor, and in the XV century it became standard for non-noble infantry.
Our Brigandine is constructed from canvas and durable wool to which steel plates are riveted. The plates in our base model are made of 1.5mm thick cold-rolled steel with dimensions of 50 x 100mm. You are also welcome to upgrade the appearance of your brigandine with high-quality suede leather and to increase its durability by having the plates made from tempered steel, stainless steel, or ultra-lightweight titanium.
Please note that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
