Bevor Armor “Hound of War”
Sliding plates medieval bevor, 15th c.
Here's a characteristic combination of equipment used during the Hundred Years' War, the predecessors of which date back to the 13th century: a cabasset to cover the head, the limbs were protected with pieces of armour, and the body with breastplates or brigandines made up of riveted steel plates covered with wool or leather. Thus, the soldier's throat is still open? Of course not!
As an open helmet, the cabasset is supposed to be combined with bevor to get the complete protection of the head and neck even for the most severe battles. This bevor features a sleek construction, the sliding plates are smooth and rounded. Possess multiple movable plates, designed to protect the neck, like a gorget. It's all-articulated, with the edges rolled and engrailed. Comes equipped with leather neck strap, adding to its wearability.
Special locking pin keeps the bevor in the up position securely to protect the face, and prevent from falling untimely. Or let it down when clearer view is needed and the eye slits on the top plate are not enough. Can also be worn with sallet, iron hat, kettle hat and burgonet.
Please note, cabasset helmet isn't included and might be ordered separately.
