You admire the Viking Armour that belonged to your father. The great warrior sailed his last voyage, but your brethren still managed to bring back his armour specially for you. For that, at least, you are grateful.

Looking down upon the sturdy, freshly polished steel, you wonder what this armour has seen. Carried on countless travels, this armour may have been covered in blood raiding the English coast, tarnished under the sun of Spain, and used in defense of Miklagard.

One day you will add to its story.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Viking Armour is a breastplate and backplate inspired by lamellar worn by the Vikings, protecting the front and back of the torso. Made from layers of mild steel plates connected with durable leather cording, this armour is flexible and impressive in detail. Strong leather lines the armour around the edges to add comfort, while adjustable leather straps along the sides and on the shoulders attach the front to a solid leather backplate. This steel piece has been treated with Epic Armoury's Epic Dark Metal coat to give the armour a rugged, antique finish.

The Viking Armour is fully usable with other Epic Armoury metal products, giving you the freedom to customize your character's costume. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in size Medium/Large.
