One of the most significant conflicts of history, the Crusades still have an impact on the way we imagine medieval warriors. We carry an excellent selection of Crusader apparel for re-enactors and history buffs. Crusader clothing often included medieval apparel like tunics, surcoats, and capes. The Crusaders wore surcoats to insulate their body from the heavy armour, because the heat of the sun would heat the armour and literally burn them. Crusader surcoats and tunics also circulated air around armour, as they were open at the bottom. Most of our Crusader knight clothing displays common symbols of the Templars, Hospitalers, and Teutonic Knights. Be sure to check out our Crusader belts, boots, and other period garments, as well, as you round out your medieval wardrobe.
