When wearing a gorget or spaulders, the addition of neck padding is an essential part of your re-enactment gear. The Leopold Padded Collar features a high neck that spreads out over the shoulders for protection and comfort. This padded mantle pairs well with padded coifs that cut off at the neck, ensuring that your protection continues from head to torso. This padded medieval collar laces with a string through eyelets in the front, giving it an excellent period look suitable for LARP or SCA events. The Leopold collar is available in black or brown color options.

    This is a very fine product…does its job well. This fits perfectly under my plate armor, and really keeps my gorget from pinching. It is quite thick, and the collar actually stands up a bit taller than the pictures suggest. I would say about 3-1/2 to 3-3/4” inches in the back. It’s quite warm, but if you live in a cooler environment, no prob. Because of its thickness, it may present a problem with wearing some helmets that come down to neck level. Overall…very good for the price!…….Mark M.

    Effective and menacing when combined with the rest of the Leopold set. I recommend tying each end of the drawstring in a simple knot upon delivery to allow it enough room to open and slide over your head without having to redo the lacing each time (and to limit fraying). It is quite warm, so if you can wear light modern active wear or minimal classic clothing beneath it, do so. Sizing: The shoulder padding is wide enough to extend approximately an inch beyond me narrow, feminine shoulders, and the collar normally brushes the underside of my jaw despite my fairly long neck. The drawstring covers my sternum, and the 4 to 6 inches between there and my neck are covered by the collar, which naturally draws together, leaving less than a square inch of neck exposed.

    As was mentioned before, the collar is a little taller than it looks but it isn’t really a problem. It is very well made and will do it’s job perfectly.

    This is a very good product and great quality. The material is very think and seems a bit still when you wear it and would think it happens movement. The color does stand up rather high and may impeed wearing a low cut helmet. BUt its a great piece and was happy to buy it.
