Prepare for the customary stab-in-the-back at your next LARP event with the Backplate for King or Templar - Size Large. Enter the battleground in armour suitable for a noble or royal warrior, and protect your spine while doing so. This backplate fits perfectly with our King or Templar breastplates. It is craft from 18-gauge steel and features an Acid Grey matted finish. The breastplate follows a simple medieval inspired design. The shaped shoulder blades, raised edging, and a small flange at the lower rim assist in the deflection of blows. Secure this backplate to its matching breastplate via the leather straps found at the shoulder and waist.
Please be aware that these items are handmade. Slight deviations in pattern, color, and shape may occur.
To properly maintain your steel armour, always keep the metal pieces away from water and lightly oiled to prevent rusting. Occasionally clean the armour with metal polish and re-oil them. Leather care products must be used to maintain the leather fittings as well.
