This pretty armour vest is a very special eyecatcher. It is made of hemmed and braided leather strips, that are riveted at each single crosspoint. Through this, its surface is getting very stabile and almost like a brigantine. It is very flexible and hardly hinders your movements, but it gives good protection for your body.
It is suitable for light soldiers and especially for bow- or crossbow-men, as you can move around freely and a your arms are uncovered.
As seen in our costume proposal, the vest can be well combined with chainmail or a chainmail collar. It also fits over a gambeson. Additionally it can be extended into a suit of heavy armour by adding some pieces of plate armour.
There are two different sizes of this vest, but it can be easily adjusted with the three lateral buckles.
You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.
If no one will come to you, it’s time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your RFB Fighter Greaves, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your axe down upon him.
You are Raynor Ironshood. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.
