Brigandine “Knight of Fortune”
Leather-covered combat body armor
This brigandine is a part of our “Knight of Fortune” armor kit. As well as other elements of this new ArmStreet creation built to tempt all of those who fight with a sword in a hand, this brigandine provides reasonable balance between full body protection, durability and flexibility.
One picture is worth a thousand words so just take a look at pictures to understand construction and key features. We decided to go with leather covering - it makes armor a bit more expensive but it's more durable and, what is even more important, better repairable. Its overall design is very common, with parallel steel plates, shoulder clasps and back slit fastening. It's also completed with handmade brass clasps, assembled with solid brass rivets and decorated with weapon mounts, which is pretty historically accurate. Optionally available weapon chains can be easily unmounted when you don't need them for appearance as SCA and live-steel fighters mostly don't need a set of spike-hammers to leave them in heads of their fallen enemies.
Important note about brigandine size: for technical reasons this brigandine can be made in regular (S, M, L, XL) sizes only. Technically it can be modified for the different body measurements but only if your waist circumference isn't larger than the chest circumference, othervise we can't guaranree proper flexibility and fit of the armour. Please contact our support if you need this brigandine in custom size.
The handmade brass weapon chains are not included by default due to safety requirements but can be added as an option for $125 extra.

Important note: Brown, Natural and Cream leather shades may vary, as unfortunately we can't control color of leather which comes from our suppliers. Sometimes it may be darker or lighter, so if tone of the leather is important factor for you, please contact us before purchase to ascertain which color exactly we have in stock at the moment. Thank you for understanding.
