Displaying excellent craftsmanship, the Blackened Markward Cuirass consists of a breastplate and backplate connected with leather straps. Rivets add detail to the front and back, matching the dark metal finish of the plate armour. The steel cuirass is designed to go well with other medieval armour, especially our Markward-style pieces. We recommend wearing a gambeson or other padded arming wear with this torso armour to maximize comfort. The metal cuirass works well for LARP events, re-enactments, and Renaissance fairs, making it a great choice for warriors and collectors.

    You might find it a little short if you have a very long torso, but it was just about right for me at the last few strap holes. Looks great when matched with the markward tasset belt. Pretty light and comfortable. Wear it with a gambeson for maximum comfort.

    i am so happy with this armor . the fit is great and to get a front and back set at this price is amazing ! very comfortable and allows almost unrestricted movement for me.

    The armor fits nice and sits very well so as not to weigh on you. Combined with the matching gorget and shoulders it felt amazing. No restriction on movement and there’s no weird rubbing anywhere.

    pretty good, i have room to move and it feels light and goes well with the gorget. bunch of rust when i got it, though it was all on the inside of the chest piece and came off fairly easy so not any big deal

    For the price point, this is a perfect starter armor piece. I am tall and broad, and this fits me very well, after putting on my gambeson. The black finish can look a bit messy on the inside, but once it’s on it looks uniformly black.

    Pretty good, mine was a riveted a little off but not enough to be noticeable or bothersome. Short enough that you can wear it the proper way (above your navel). the backplate is actually articulated a little bit which is nice. Really doesn’t restrict your movements at all.

    While it looks great with the rest of the set, it is versatile enough to blend with other looks as well. Swiss pikeman, conquistador, Landsknecht, you are good. Adjustable to most body frames and rigid enough to take a solid hit.
