The Steel 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 on the chest and back display a bright metal finish with corrugated details, making this LARP armour ideal for knights and champions of all sorts. Be sure to check out all of our Fafnir-style armour when planning your ensemble for your next LARP battle or re-enactment.
