Description of the Product

Even with the gambeson and a mail shirt, a fighter was not as well protected as a warrior with plate armor. However, plate armor was very expensive. The brigadine filled this gap very well. The suede leather garment has small steel plates riveted between the outer shell and the lining. This kind of construction made it easy enough for a soldier to make and repair his own armor without needing the high skill of an armorer. Weighing only 2.7 kg (6 lbs), it is very flexible and does not restrict movement.

The brigadine was first used at the end of the 14th Century and were still in use well into the 16th Century. Commonly worn over a gambeson and mail shirt, it was not long before this form of protection was in wide use with fighters from knight to archer. This version has three buckles on each side for versatility in fit.

The item was available in black and brown but now only in black with nickel silver rivets.
Approx. 81cm (32") from shoulder to hem, weight 2.7kg (6lbs).
