The fastest way to a warriors heart is through their chest, and that is why armor is important! At Dark Knight Armoury, we endeavor to provide you with the best protection possible, and that is why we offer such a large selection of leather body armor. Here, you will find all sorts of leather protections that will keep you safe on the battlefield. And of course, we also offer a huge assortment of different designs, ensuring that not only does your leather body armor keep you safe and protected, but it also suits your personal taste and style! We offer, primarily, three different varieties of leather body armor, ranging from breastplates, cuirasses and harnesses, and brigandines. Each one is different and bears a simple explanation. In a cuirass or harness, you get total leather protection not only in front but also in back. A breastplate, by comparison, is lighter than a cuirass but only provides protection for the front and partially on the sides. A brigandine, on the other hand, differs radically from both, being similar to a leather vest or hauberk that features additional plating. Any of these three, though, are sure to combine with lightness, mobility, and protection into one amazing whole that perfectly suits all manner of different warriors. Much of our leather body armor is offered in different weights of leather, with 13-15 oz leather being suited for SCA use, reenactments, and more, while lower weights, like 9-10 oz leather and 7-8 oz leather are lighter and more suited for use as costume pieces and LARP armor. Whether for live action roleplay, an SCA event, or for just reenactment among family and friends, you almost could not ask for better protection then some of the leather body armor that you will find right here at Dark Knight Armoury.

Leather Gorgets

A leather gorget is a great piece of authentic medieval armor, as well as a fantastic protection that will help ward off blows that might slip through to your neck or collar. But more importantly then that, the gorgets at Dark Knight Armoury are also a great piece to include in any armor set, for reasons of both protection and versatility. Now, if that word strikes a chord in you, you might be wondering how a gorget can be versatile. Well, we will tell you. Above and beyond providing additional protection, a gorget can also act as a harness, as many feature added buckles and bands that are perfect for providing support to a variety of different armor pieces. This means that some gorgets give you the option of wearing pauldrons. Others possess unique features, like full neck protection or bevors that work wonders for keeping you, your neck, and your shoulder even safer from harm than before. Many of our gorgets are crafted from 13-15 oz leather, which meets SCA standards for leather armor, making it a solid and sturdy piece that is every bit as protective as it sounds. To put on a gorget, you typically put it on backwards, with the lacing or buckles in the front, and turn it around once it is secure. Pair one of our simple leather gorgets with any suit of leather armor to provide that added bit of protection that every warrior should have, or wear one of Dark Knight Armourys more visually complex and stylized fantasy gorgets to help create a style and a look that is both highly protective and totally impressive.
