Soft Armor Cuirass
Soft body protection for SCA, HMB and modern sword fighting
Historical fencing and martial arts in all the wide spectrum of varieties is always a breathtaking activity to spectate not only because of the graceful movements and interesting tactical solutions of the battle itself but also because of the appearance of the participants. Knights in shining armor look gorgeous but that's quite a heavy duty for them! Not only steel armor weights a lot, is a challenge to put on and off and sometimes gives you bruises and rubs, but also it needs special attention in terms of transportation and maintenance. If you take your armor from the storage box just several times a year and have enough young squires to do all the dirty jobs to keep it shining and working like a charm then there is nothing to be worried about. But if your attitude to the medieval passion is sport-like and you have practices on a weekly basis you might like to consider the Soft Armor. While being soft, comfortable to wear and comparatively lightweight it is still rather bulky and restrains your movements in a way similar to the one the metal armor harness does.
This body protection setup has both front and rear parts thoroughly covered. The upper part of the biceps is covered as well with integrated kinda pauldrons. If your medieval character is close to heavy infantry in action – this piece of armor is a perfect choice to significantly increase the efficiency of your training. Finally you can battle against your enemies or opponents rather than your own equipment!
Made of foam covered with reliable nylon outside and comfortable cotton inside, the cuirass can be worn over your regular sports clothing and doesn't require the gambeson or any other padding underneath.
The usage of Soft Armor has proven to be a great choice by many teams that take their historical hobby serious enough to spend time not only at events but in a local practice facility. Such a modern kind of protection allows you to pay more attention to the tactical aspect or to master that particular tricky blow by repeating it a hundred times in a row and not feeling dead tired after. As foam armor is also less traumatic it is the best solution for a rookie or a teenager as well.
