As a squire, you must wake with the sun to prepare for your training. You are responsible for your master as well as your extra chores, and it’s only after the morning’s water is boiled and you’ve set out your master’s clothing and polished armour that you are allowed to begin your drills.

What armour you own, a RFB Neck & Shoulders set, is easy enough for you to wear as you practice your sword swings. One day you will be a fearsome knight. For now, you must continue to train hard and build your skills.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Ready for Battle Neck and Shoulders is a simplified version of our neck plate armour, designed to protect the upper body while remaining comfortable and lightweight. A quilted cotton gorget sits comfortably around the neck and over the shoulders, providing padding beneath other metal armours or worn on its own. Each shoulder is then protected with the addition of a steel shoulderguard, coated to prevent rust.

Secure the RFB Neck & Shoulders armour by tightening the cotton tie-strings across the shoulders, adjusting so that the armour sits comfortably around the neck. Made of 1 mm galvanized steel and strong cotton, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular cotton and metal armour care.

 

Available in sizes X-Small/Small, Medium/Large and X-Large/XX-Large.

HISTORY

  • Also referred to as a gorget, which means throat
  • Early versions were typically worn under the breastplate and backplate to support the weight of the heavier plate armour
