Additional information

A coat of plates was a heavy cloth, or leather coat (often sleeveless) that had armor plates riveted into it. By this method, a flexible, plated protection could be had without the great cost of plate armors – Making it a popular choice for non-noble men-at-arms of European late medieval and renaissance warriors. It was often worn over a gambeson or sometimes chainmail. Sometimes the well-heeled knights and noblemen could have very elaborate brigandines with the plate rivets affixed in complex patterns.

This coat of plates is crafted from brown cotton with 18 gauge steel plates riveted in between its layers. Its interior is lined with cotton felt. As this gambeson is crafted from organic material, it will breathe better than poly-fill gambesons on the market. The plates and rivets are of steel and the individual plates measure 5 x 3 1/4. Its short sleeves have an open arm pit design for mobility and ventilation. The brigandine can be adjusted to size with the leather straps and brass buckles on its sides. Shoulder width measured from where the arm seam begins.

    Good In Appearance The cloth jacket is well made and the plates are well riveted. There is another layer of cloth covering the plates on the inside, meaning that the plates are sandwiched between two pieces of cloth. They say that the metal is 18 gauge, but it’s extremely easy to bend. When you bend one of the plates, it stays in that position and its very easy to bend back. I’m not entirely sure if this is supposed to happen, but it was somewhat odd that I was able to do that. Regardless, you get what you pay for, and I would definitely recommend it because it looks really cool.

    Awesome I got a prototype with 16 g plates. Never bent, a bit heavier. Love it. I boil in a fencing jacket/gambeson. No prblem with brigadine. Couple with padded collar for shoulders + gorget.
