Functional Steel Backplates

It is good policy, as a warrior on the field of battle, to never show your back to your enemy, at least, not if you can help it. Yet no matter how a warrior might try, it is bound to happen sometime, and the best way to ensure that your enemies do not capitalize on that moment of weakness is to wear a functional steel backplate from Dark Knight Armoury. Our functional back plates are designed to be fully compatible with our functional steel breastplates. They feature leather straps that match up easily with the straps and buckles on many of our corresponding breastplates. Many of our backplates are crafted from high quality 18 gauge steel, which gives it the strength necessary to hold up under the duress of combat, ensuring that you can use it for something as non-threatening as LARP or as harrowing as SCA reenactments! Others are crafted from 8-9 oz leather, which offers a good balance of protection and lightness that some of the more mobile warriors might prefer. Our metal backplates also come in a variety of finishes, many of which offer their own distinct examples. We do not recommend that you voluntarily turn your back to an enemy, either real or simulated, for any period of time, but when it does happen, you can do so with confidence knowing that Dark Knight Armoury has your back protected, thanks to the great functional steel backplate that you are wearing.
