DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Viking Greaves are fancy leather greaves designed to protect the calves. The armour is constructed from leather straps cut from chrome-tanned, split leather, and weaved together to create a beautiful design. The armour is secured to the leg by sturdy leather straps and brass buckles.

 

The Viking Greaves are hemmed with additional soft split leather to keep the armour from deforming with excessive wear. This armour matches our Viking Armour and Bracers, but has a distinct, neutral style that will fit with almost any combination of costuming for your first adventure.

Available in Black and Brown, and size Medium.

HISTORY

  • Inspired by lamellar armour worn by the Vikings, which would have included small iron plates
  • Historically, using only leather as armour is factually inconclusive--most Viking wore ordinary clothing and used a shield as protection
