Epic Armourys Checkered Shield is a semi-curved, kite-shield inspired by 10th to 12th century Normans. Finished with a beautifully detailed laser-cut heraldry pattern, this shield will fit perfectly in the hands of an infantryman or knight. The rest of the shield is handmade and painted, designed to look like a lacquered shield with a metal rim.
Wear this Checkered Shield left- or right-handed with the use of its adjustable three sets of leather straps on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.
All latex-coated shields need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone which can be purchased separately. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coats flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex shields flat –NEVER on the tip (if applicable). Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your shield in a cool, dry environment.
