Description

Armor on a budget hardly means that you have to sacrifice protection or looks. This RFB Fighter Leather Armor is a fine choice of protection for any LARP warrior to wear, one that offers plenty of protection, as well as a rather distinctive look, too. Based loosely around the classic design of the medieval brigandine, this leather harness combines the modular look of a coat of plates with the lightness and versatility of leather. The harness consists of a duo of pieces, a front and a back, which are connected together via leather straps that loop over the shoulders and wrap around the midriff, leaving the arms free to move, while offering a superior level of protection. Because of this, the armor fits most chests easily and is sized about the midriff. The armor appears as several squares of leather, all riveted together to create all the protection that a warrior would need. The armor features plenty of buckles, making it rather adjustable, both around the shoulders and around the waist. It is crafted in 7-8 oz. leather, offered in black or brown. If you are a warrior on a budget, you need not despair if you find yourself lacking armor for your next LARP, because this RFB Fighter Leather Armour is offered to you so that you can have the protection you need and the medieval style you desire all without having to break the bank!

    This armor is really nicely made, and with good care, should stand up to a lot of abuse. It is, however, VERY small. Even with all the possible adjustments, the largest you can make it is still very small. Lucky for me, the teenager playing Macbeth that I bought it for is a pretty skinny kid, but my dreams of stealing it later to wear for myself have been dashed. This will not fit you if you have boobs, period. Great buy for someone small and skinny, though.

    The previous review was not lying when they noted that it was VERY small. Ney, this is definitely a CHILD sized armour. I am a smaller guy, so I thought I could make it work. Definitely wrong on that one. In the description they make it out to be for anyone. I wish they would have just advertised this as a child’s and included a picture of a model wearing it. In the catalog I ordered with my last shipment, it has this item listed with a very young child modelling it. No reason they couldn’t have included that picture on the item’s page. Size aside, it is definitely well made and goes great with a variety of looks and styles. Would recommend for anyone under the age of 13.

    A bit late of a review, but I ordered this as part of a Halloween costume. For the price, I’m pretty satisfied with what I got, but did go into it hoping the leather would be a bit stiffer then it turned out to be. Over all, I was impressed with how durable it proved to be, and became rather thankful that it was not made of stiff leather, as that allowed it to stretch over my brother’s gut.

    Nice, seems well made. But they do run small! Go bigger than you think and you will be happy! My mom needed one too so this will be hers now.

  5. Joe R.

    Absolutely love it: functional, does not reduce movement, very light, and yet very durable. Highly recommend!

  6. Matt M.

    Awesome….functional, does not reduce movement, light, and durable

  7. Evan R.

    Nice Armor for the price. Only issue is the buckles are a little hard to do by yourself. also some belt loops would have helped manage the straps a little better. so I added belt loops easily found online and wear it with the buckles in front since the front and back are roughly same size

  8. Brenden M.

    It’s alright. You’ll need help with the straps, but for the price it’s a good piece
