Churburg Style Brigandine
Many notable knights who followed the medieval armour’ fashion of that time were using reinforced chainmails. But such armor was weak against the halberds and bows. Because it had connective lines it could be pricked, moved apart, poked by the cutting edge of sword or lance. Moreover, reinforced chainmail armor had a couple layers. This caused discomfort and therefore became out of use. A new type of armor was developed to fulfill both requirements: high protective and flexible qualities . Tightly fit coat of plates and brigandines became really popular and were commonly used in Europe up to the last quarter of the XV century.
Our Churburg Style Brigndne consist of large chest plate, back plates and rectangular hip plates. Upper back plate overlaps the right and left back elements. If you would like it can be fastened in another way: under these elements.
Brigandine has fastenings on the front, sides and back. Considering your padding or/and arm harness specialities you can choose the more comfortable way to put it on. All straps are made from qualitative and durable leather. Thanks to them you can easily adjust brigandine according to your bodybuilt. The shell covering material can be: fabric+canvas or leather+canvas by your choice. Churburg Style Brigandine can be done in the same custom 1/2 or 1/4 color design as you can see it on our Corazzina type-2 multicolor or Corazzina type-3 multicolor.
