Description

Any color on your choice.

We create this model to solve the problem of protecting the neck and collarbone in medieval combat. Neck is usually a weak point in the armor, because there is no protection between the body and the helmet. Getting hit there is painful and dangerous. Therefore, we offer you an option that completely cover your neck from different sides attacks.

The model consists of plates and a cloth base. Lightweight and durable plates made of titanium are perfect to protect you in medieval combat. Their weight is minimal, but at the same time they are durable as steel and will be able to withstand hit into such a dangerous place. The plates in a circle lie on each other with an overlap and form a solid collar. Such design will weaken the blow to the neck area and close gap between helmet and body. At the same time, due to the arrangement of the plates, the model remains mobile and will not prevent you from turning your head in fight. The cloth base of the collar consists of two layers, fastened together – a lasting tarpaulin on the inside and wool on the outside. This makes it wear resistant and more durable.

The total weight of the model is minimal. With the help of lacing, you can fix the protection on the neck, for convenient use.

Order and feel confident.

General Recommendations for Measurements for Legs Armor:

Clothing: Measurements should be taken wearing the padded chausses you intend to wear with the armor. Sweatpants or jeans will not accurately reflect the thickness of the padded chausses and could lead to ill-fitting armor.

Bare Legs If you are ordering both legs and padding together, measuring your bare legs is acceptable. However, please clearly indicate on the measurement sheet that the measurements are for bare legs.

Measurements: Take all measurements with a flexible measuring tape, snug but not tight.

Additional Notes:

  • Take all measurements with padded chausses or similar under-the-legs armor and shoes on.
  • Ensure you or the person being measured is standing straight and relaxed with feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Use a flexible measuring tape for accurate circumference measurements.
  • Consider additional measurements if specific armor requires them (e.g., knee joint width, foot length).
  • This table provides a basic guide and adjustments might be necessary based on individual body shape and specific armor design.

Required measurements:

A. Weight: Measure your weight in kilograms or pounds without wearing any armor.

Before we begin, ensure you have your actual padded under-armor kit ready: gambeson, chausses, and c-belt. Using anything else like modern jackets, sweatpants, or layered sweaters won’t provide the accurate measurements needed for fitting your brigantine. If you’re planning to order both your padded kit and brigantine from our shop simultaneously, sending your bare body measurements is acceptable. However, please inform us of this so we can properly adjust the sizing based on your true dimensions.

Additional Tips:

  • When taking measurements, stand relaxed with good posture.
  • Make sure the measuring tape is snug but not tight.
  • If you’re unsure about any measurements, it’s always best to err on the side of being slightly larger.
  • Consider having someone else take your measurements for greater accuracy.
