Medieval Knight Body Armor Breastplate
Medieval Knight Body Armor Breastplate. The sections are suspended by comfortable leather straps that can adjust to fit any size shoulder. The straps at the side adjust to fit any width. Each cuirass side is sectioned into two protective layers, linked together. The sectional portions hang below the cuirass, and are also known as the skirt. They measure 11 1/2 inches long and protect the thighs and groin. Each is fixed with a tough leather strap. The skirt has contours that absorb and deflect impact. This quality set a fine historical piece for reenactment, costuming, and swordplay.
