Description

The Blackened Fafnir Brigandine is made with comfort in mind, constructed from metal plates that have been riveted on a backing of padded suede. The body armour can be put on swiftly so you are ready to fight in a matter of minutes. Due to its 8 oz. leather padding, the steel brigandine does not need to be worn with a gambeson or a similar garment. The fit of this medieval armour can be adjusted to three different sizes with leather straps pulled through eyelets. The plate armour can be worn in various combinations, as well, by removing the shoulder plates or thigh protectors as desired. The steel plates featured on the front and back display a dark metal finish with corrugated details, making this LARP armour ideal for dark warriors and mercenaries of all sorts.

    AWESOME. It looks better in person than in the picture. You will not be dissatisfied. The only thing I would change is the leg armour as it is the only piece that can’t be worn as its own piece and it’s basically impossible to get in and out of it without untying the center crotch plate; a minor hassle. I’m thinking of making a belt for it. For the price and the quality you can’t complain though. Truly an amazing suit of armour.

    Absolutely amazing armor, however there are several points on the chest piece that (if fighting) can dig into the arm and cause big bruises, and the bottom skirt adds around 40% of the weight that lays on your shoulders. After those facts though it is probably one of the best things of armor I’ve seen.

    Just got this armor the other day. Looks great, feels great. Don’t let the picture fool you though, this armor is heavy, around 34+ pounds (15.5 + kg) Easy to put on. Gonna need to wear it a lot to get use to the weight. As always, ordering from MC was easy and the product showed up within a week. AWSOME, I love MC

    I am 6’1″ with a 48-50″ chest and out of the box this piece fit like a glove. The shoulder and leg pieces can be easily removed for added customization. I recommend treating the metal with a protective spray as left untreated it will rust. The chest pieces has a few places to adjust the fit so it can swing 2″ either way. When properly snug most of the weight is around your ribs cage like a corset and take a lot of the weight off your shoulders.
