Multilayered 15 Century Front Slit Brigandine July 17, 2008 This is great quality 15 century type brigandine - great classic combat medieval armor. Our brig is made of 3 layers of fabric with leather covering (external leather layer, then 2 layers of cotton and flax linen lining) with 1 mm hand-dished cold-rolled plates inside. This is great, light and very comfortable combat armour. Actually, 1mm is enough, but for your choice it can be made with 1.5 (16 ga) cold-rolled plates inside. Brig is bordered with leather trimming. Plates are hand-dished and brig is joined with solid metal rivets. Great flexibility, reasonable weight and authentic medieval looking.
