“Olegg the Mercenary” Fantasy Viking Leather Armor

Embossed leather vest with buckles

This handsome vest is made from two layers of thick, strong leather. The base layer is plain, and the second layer consists of panels or “scales”, each scale measuring 6.5cm x 9cm (2 4/7" x 3 4/7"). They are arranged in a vertical pattern and are secured with both glue and strong leather thonging to make sure they’ll stand up to light combat. Though this vest does not have a historic prototype and is very much fantasy, we imagine it to be inspired by Rus lamellar. This is a great piece of armor for lighter forms of combat such as LARP or light sparring. The leather is strong but still very flexible, allows a decent range of movement.

This chest piece is adorned with a beautiful viking knot work embossing pattern on some of the panels. The knotwork is neutral and not meant to represent any particular animal, and was created by our talented designers after much research into historic viking ornaments. The embossing runs along most of the perimeter of the vest, including under some of the buckles and along the bottom edge. This vest is open at the front and is closed up by five straps and buckles. The straps are embossed with knot work and attached to the vest via strong leather thonging. They are finished with beautiful hand-cast brass buckles with a viking motif, matching all of the other knot work. On the sides of the vest there are laces that allow you to pull it closed.

You will find a strap and buckle on each shoulder to make sure you get the best possible fit. They are similar to the buckles on the front: each strap is expertly embossed and finishing, and the nice buckles tie the whole thing together.

Important note: Brown, Natural and Cream leather shades may vary, as unfortunately we can't control the color of leather which comes from our suppliers. Sometimes it may be darker or lighter, so if the tone of the leather is an 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.

    Is the tunic under the armour for sale, if not do you know where to get it?

  • Stephen Blok 20 of September 2018:

    Is this armour available with silver or nickel colored hardware (buckles) instead of brass? Even if it’s not as ornate?

    Hi Stephen! Buckles can be made in brass only, unfortunately.
