Medieval Leather Gorget

Plain veg-tanned leather neck armour

There is a wild charm in leather gorgets, same as in leather armor largely. You aren't wrapped in metal like a can, still, preserve a degree of protection. However, there is virtually no evidence of the widespread usage of leather armor in the European Middle Ages - just as any organic, leather is susceptible to rot and decay. For those who have a thing for that kind of subtle beauty, we offer a simplified version of the “Bird of Prey” gorget - this time without expensive embossing, which allows saving a couple of hundred bucks. Not bad, huh?

This version has all the functional advantages of its predecessor: a stainless steel base, a welded stand-up collar, and a coating made up of veg-tanned leather all over. Add solid brass rivets, which are not afraid of moisture and dampness, and rust by extention, and a handy fastener - a thin lock pin that is inserted into a dowel, thereby keeping the halves of the gorget closed.

In total, it looks wild enough as if it was a fully-leather but protects the neck, throat and upper chest even better than the metal one, due to the double layer of protection. Works great with cuirass, brigandine, chain mail and even as a separate piece for LARP.
