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.
With its stand-up collar and fleur-de-lis patterns, the Sigfrid Leather Gorget successfully blends a solid defense with style. Create a medieval warrior worthy of the LARP battlefield with this versatile piece as part of your armour.
