This model of shoulder protection was inspired by Milanese spaulders – espalderium.
Our Segmented Spaulders are smaller than their historical XV century Milanese counterparts. This makes them more comfortable to use. The so-called “wings” of Milanese spaulders were quite big, such that they sometimes overlapped each other at the shoulder blades. This was done with the intention of reinforcing the back plate. Our Segmented Spaulders are articulated and movable and are equipped with leather points with holes. You can easily affix them to your padded gambeson and the ensure they remain in place, we use a leather strap for proper fastening to your biceps.
Our Segmented Spaulders are battle ready and can be used for full contact medieval combat in both HMB and IMCF.
Please note, that measurements should be with padding/gambeson.
