DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Roman Shoulder Armour are Ancient Roman inspired shoulder guards designed to deflect blows away from the shoulder and head. Made from vegetable-tanned full-grain leather and heavy cotton canvas, this armour is also reinforced with extra leather and stitching around the edges to preserve its shape with long use. Along the outer rim, the Roman Shoulder Armour is decorated with slim leather and heavy canvas straps overhanging the upper arms to offer protection and excellent mobility.

Secure the Roman Shoulder Armour to your existing cuirass or chainmail using strong leather cords at the shoulder. The style is fitting for a Roman infantryman or legionnaire, and is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armours, giving you the freedom to customize your costume.

Available in One Size.
