Leather Armour

There's no denying that when it comes to protection and mobility, leather armour is definitely the way to go. A suit of leather armour allows for a warrior to protect their vitals while retaining their agility, and at Medieval Armour, we understand that mobility is sometimes every bit as important as plated protection. And that's why we offer such a wide selection of different pieces of leather armour. Virtually all of our leather armour is crafted from high quality leather, and many pieces are even crafted from armor-grade leather to ensure its strength and its durability. And because of that strength, much of our leather armour works wonderfully as leather SCA armour or leather LARP armour, providing a more than adequate level of protection for any fighter or warrior interested in reenactment or battle. Much of our leather armour is modeled after traditional medieval armour, although there are plenty of pieces of fantasy leather armour for those out there who want a distinctive and unique style fitting their fantasy theme. And of course, we offer various pieces of protection so that they can be mixed and matched, creating a wide assortment of different looks. We have leather arm armour to keep your wrists and arms safe from harm, as well as leather leg armour for keeping others from inflicting damage upon your legs. There's leather neck armour and leather helmets for protecting your vital regions, i.e. your head and your neck, and of course, there's leather body armour to keep core safe from enemy blows. When it comes to leather armour, at Medieval Armour, we don't kid around, offering the widest selection of leather armour and all its pieces possible, all so that you can peruse, purchase and put together your ideal suit of authentic medieval or fantasy leather armour.

When you're looking to protect yourself with a combination of fancy footwork and armour, then you should definitely consider wearing leather body armour. Leather armour is lighter and more flexible than metal, giving the wearer that much more room to work with. And when you decide to wear leather armour, you can find the leather cuirass you need here at Medieval Armour. We offer a number of different styles of leather armour, all to suit a wide assortment of different tastes. For the traditional warrior, we offer leather medieval armour that is simple, straight-forward, and to the point. And for the discerning warrior who wants something a bit more unique, we also offer leather fantasy armour that will create the costume look. We even offer Roman lorica segmenta in all leather, as well as classic Roman muscle armour in leather, ensuring that if you want a Grecian or a Roman look in leather, you can have that, too! Several pieces of our leather body armour works quite well as SCA armour, as it is made from armor-grade leather that's designed to take punishment quite well. And even if you're not fighting, a good leather cuirass or leather harness is just the way to create a number of impressive looks, ranging from historical warriors like centurions and roman legionaries to fantasy fighters like rangers and elves. And if you're looking for even more protection, nothing complements a leather medieval cuirass quite like a chainmail hauberk. And you can find both and much more in the way of great leather armour, here at Medieval Armour.

Leather Brigandines

Read More
The leather brigandine first surfaced during the 14th century, before coming into widespread use during the following 15th and 16th centuries, were it survived the transition between mail and plate armour. This is because a leather brigandine perfectly combines the lightness and the maneuverability of leather with the strength of layered plate armour. And this is something that Medieval Armour has carried over into our own selection of medieval brigandines, too. Each and every piece of leather body armour found here is a classic example of a leather coat of plates, with some featuring small metal plates while others feature small leather plates. And they're all equally effective as far as medieval armour goes, creating a leather coat of plates that offers great protection without forcing a warrior to sacrifice speed and mobility. This style of leather armour would make for a great choice when it comes to LARP armour or SCA armour, as a brigandine is not only highly effective, but many are also easy to maintain, too! As a testament to how effective and wide-spread the leather brigandine was, it was apparently the favored armour of William Wallace, having been featured in the movie Braveheart. Warriors of all types, ranging from knights to archers to bandits favored the leather brigandine as their armour of choice, and now, thanks to Medieval Armour, now you can pick the medieval brigandine as your armour of choice, too!

Leather Gorgets

Like its metal cousins, a leather gorget is more than just a piece of armour. Of course, leather gorgets do provide an added level of defense to the collar, neck, shoulders, and chest, and that alone is a valuable feature. But a leather gorget can also act as a harness, allowing even more defenses to be added to a warrior's defense. Modeled after the traditional medieval gorget, these pieces of neck protection are worn in a fashion similar to a leather cowl, wrapping around the shoulders and sometimes the neck, providing an additional layer of leather protection. Virtually all of our leather gorgets are solid examples of neck armour and shoulder armour, having been made from quality, armour-grade leather that gives each one the weight and durability necessary to stand up against impact. Because of their strength, they make great SCA gorgets, especially for the warrior whose looking to wear medieval armour that's light in weight. And since they hold up so well under duress, they are fantastic LARP gorgets, too, adding a sense of realism and style to any LARP or LRP warrior's attire. If you're going for absolute realism or if you're just seeking absolute leather protection, you'll want to invest in one of Medieval Armour's leather gorgets, for both the protection it will provide as well as the look.
