Armor Kit “Prince of the East”

Cuirass, pauldrons, bazubands and legs

Tales of Arabian Knights, Persian Princes, and of Jinns freed from bottles have forever held the rapt attention of audiences while talented storytellers and bards brought myth to life through their words. To honor these tales and the larger than life heroes about whom they were spun, ArmStreet presents our “Prince of the East” armour set.

Based upon historic pieces of armour residing in both the famed Tower of London and Kremlin Armoury collections, our “Prince of the East” harkens back to a time when mounted Mamluk Warriors roamed the desert and Ottoman Turks stormed the walls of Constantinople. The armour worn by these warriors was deeply etched and often inlaid with pure gold. Our ArmStreet artisans have recreated the style and beauty of the original etchings, creating an armour that will be a treasure to own for years to come.

This armour is fast, light, flexible and yet very protective. Though based on more than a single set of period armour, we are confident that this armour would be right at home during any era of the Late Middle Ages.

Wearing the “Prince of the East” puts all other fighters on the field on notice that you have come bringing your “A Game” looking to do something extraordinary so that bards will telling stories about you!

Are you “tale worthy”? Dare to live your dream.

This kit does not include a helmet; however, we offer multiple helmets that would match perfectly with this armour, for both reenactment and combat purposes. The maille shown is not included.

ArmStreet realizes that some reenactment organizations forbid the use of stainless steel for period armour. We therefore offer a Mild, Cold-Rolled Steel version as well as our stainless kit. However, we do recommend stainless steel for the foundation for our etched armour, as there is increase maintenance involved with the mild steel version.

IMPORTANT: To fit correctly and prevent injury, a suit of armour must be accurately built to the measurements of the person wearing it. PLEASE take all measurements over either the gambeson or under-padding you are planning to wear with this armour. The sole exception is for persons buying armour and padding together, ArmStreet will then make the proper size adjustments for the armour based on the measurements provided for the padding. For size measurements for sabatons, please send the actual measurements of the footwear you plan to wear under them.

Medieval Martial Arts are, by their very nature, dangerous and ArmStreet is not responsible for any injuries sustained by persons wearing their armour during the course of such activities. We cannot stress enough the importance of proper training, armour, weapons and knowledgeable supervision during these activities. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the wearer and their opponent for the safety of the participants.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions.

    Hey I was curious how many armor points this would give to amtgard/dagorhir.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The one would need about ten arming points for this kit. If you order the gambeson and the padded choses from our shop we`ll make the arming point for you for $30.00 extra only.

  • Ben Mackie 13 of September 2016:

    I am probably going to buy this armour sometime this year, I really love the look of it, is there any chainmail that you can recommend? Would you recommend a long sleeve gambeson or a short sleeve, I can't see what he is using in the picture. Thanks!!!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    We do not produce any chainmail, sorry. As for the gambeson, taking into account that the armour is East style, we'd recommend you one of these gambesons:

    1. Armor Padding Asian Type Long Gambeson (https://armstreet.com/store/armor/armor-padding-asian-type-long-gambeson)
    2. Asian Type Long Mongol Gambeson (https://armstreet.com/store/armor/asian-type-long-mongol-gambeson-with-flax-linen-exterior-sca)

  • Roman Feher 16 of August 2016:

    Do you possibly know where I could purchase chainmail?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    We can not provide you any info unfortunately, we don`t produce chainmail for sale, sorry.

  • Tom 28 of June 2016:

    Can you do a custom etching??

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Custom etching is possible, please send the illustration or the pattern you like to contact@armstreet.com. Price depends on the complexity of the ornament and its size. We'll consult with our designer to estimate the price and processing time.

  • Forrest 20 of November 2015:

    I suppose the chainamil is not included?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The chainmail is not included, we do not produce chainmail for sale.

  • Jack Caudle 07 of July 2015:

    Would I be able to order this without the etching designs? Just blank and un-decorated?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    You'll save 15% of initial price. To get the discount, please email us at contact@armstreet.com.

  • Ian Wise 09 of June 2015:

    I am planning on putting in an armor/gambeson order and I was wondering if I could get some extra string for tying up the knight of the west tunics I have. Also, how would you recommend taking care of the prince of the east armor and the knight of the west tunics? Thank you

    ArmStreet team answered 12 of June 2015:

    Do you mean the trim or the string for the arming points? Please email us at contact@armstreet.com after purchasing.

    The tunic is machine washable, use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle mode. Use color safe laundry detergent. Extraction (spinning) in delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak.

    You can clean and polish the armor with a dry soft cloth and some sort of oil (for example, waste engine oil). Do not polish the surface with the abrasive materials. Water ingress is permissible, but not desirable (do not wipe the product with a damp cloth, do not immerse in water, do not wash in the washing machine). After each use, the armor should be cleaned and wiped dry. Keep the armor in dry ventilated area, sudden temperature changes must be excluded. Before the long-term storage, make sure that all parts of the armor are clean, dry and completely covered with oil.

  • Bryan 06 of February 2015:

    Hi there, I was just wondering if you had a gorget in this style suitable for SCA, or is the Aventail on your helmets are SCA legal?

    ArmStreet team answered 06 of February 2015:

    There is no matching gorget in this set, the neck is covered with the aventail of the Turban Helmet “Prince of the East”. For SCA the helmet can be equipped with SCA-grade hidden protection upon request.

  • Rebecca Bassett 27 of December 2013:

    What would be the approximate weight for the stainless full set (without helmet) - someone 6ft tall with medium build (180 pounds)

    ArmStreet team answered :

    About 15-18 kg (33-40 lbs).

  • Humod 30 of October 2013:

    Ottoman ?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Rather, Persian.

  • josh beckham 31 of August 2013:

    Is this armor sca approved?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Bazubands should be SCA-adjusted (this option is free if you order the full set).
    Other pieces are SCA-legal according to the Marshal's Handbook.
    We recommend to consult with your local marshal previously.

  • Adrian Cabassa 02 of May 2013:

    My suit arrived exactly two months after I ordered it. I it beautiful! I can't wait to armor up and hit the field in it. Everyone is impressed with it too! Great work! I love it. And i own the matching helm too!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Great, thanks for the review!

  • Mitchell 19 of April 2013:

    Hey i was just wondering if this came with the chain mail because it isn't listed in the contents.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The chainmail is not included, we do not produce it for sale.

  • Miss Michele Walter 08 of April 2013:

    I have recently bought this and I love it. The etching detail is so beautiful, the individual pieces are well made and fit to perfection. All the leather straps are firm and solid. It is a joy to look at! Thank you Armstreet.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Thanks for your feedback, Michele!

  • Alexander Taran 16 of September 2012:

    Steppin' it up! Always have had excellent gear for fantastic prices, but your last few new sets have been a cut above your usual.
