The 17th Century Buff Coat makes the perfect option for warriors re-enacting the Golden Age, Thirty Years War, or the English Civil War. Often worn beneath armour, historical buff coats were typically donned by cavalry and officers. The leather buff coat helps keep armour from chafing similar to a gambeson, though it can also be worn as an alternative to metal armour. Ties close the front and the ends of the long sleeves. Panels extend from the waist to cover part of the legs for additional protection. Whether you are dressing as a wealthy harquebusier or other English officer, this buff coat works great for LARP events and re-enactments.
