Leather Brigandines

For something that is flexible and yet still highly protective, you will want to don a leather brigandine. Brigandines were a popular form of affordable protection during the Middle Ages, one that was favored by all manner of warriors. And now, you can favor it too, as Dark Knight Armoury carries a few great brigandines for you to wear into battle. A leather brigandine was considered to be the evolution of the coat of plates, and the name applies quite well to this armor, as well. Most brigandines, ours included, consist of a flexible leather outer layer and an inner lining, as well as several metal or leather plates that have been fitted between the two layers to enhance its protective abilities. A typical brigandine was worn with a padded gambeson and a chainmail shirt, as well as with plated leg armor and arm armor. Together, all these pieces formed a suit of armor that was quite effective and quite protective. Our brigandines echo the original construction, and we offer both leather plated brigandines and metal plated brigandines, allowing the wearer to pick and choose the level of protection that they wish to feature. Pair any brigandine with chainmail and a gambeson for a truly medieval look, as well as for a protective style that will be hard to beat. Our leather brigandines make for great LARP armour, as well as a good, solid suit of reenactment armour to wear as well. IF you are looking for a coat of plates or a brigandine that is perfect for soldiers, knights, archers, and more, then you are definitely in the right place, because Dark Knight Armoury definitely carries those, making us your number one provider of high quality leather armor.
