Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Viking Leather 2nd Quality is our adorned leather cuirass that has experienced some rust damage while being shipped to our warehouse (see photos). The rust is minimal and does not affect the safety of this armour, and can be improved with a little “elbow grease” and special care. Instead of throwing these away and wasting material, we are offering them at a discounted price to fit your more rustic character’s needs.
The armour is constructed from leather cut from chrome-tanned, plated leather, set in a diagonal weave on the front. Attach the front to the separate back plate with split-leather straps fitted at the top and sides and secured with iron buckles on the back. These straps make this cuirass highly adjustable, allowing it to fit closely to the individual wearer. Along the edges of the front and back plate the armour is rimmed with soft split-leather, making it harder to deform with excessive use.
This Viking Leather is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armour pieces. While designed to fit a Viking setting, the style will also match a broad range of worlds and characters, allowing you the freedom to create your own unique style.
