Lord of Battles – Gothic Armor Cuirass – 16 Gauge Steel

Additional information

This Gothic Cuirass features the elegant fluting and ridges of Gothic plate; the armor is crafted from articulated plates of 16 gauge steel. The two-part cuirass which protects the entirety of the torso is fitted and adjusted to the body with a set of shoulder and side buckles and straps. The buckles are steel and the matching straps are robust leather. The plates are internally articulated by riveting them to a backing of thick leather strips.

Gothic armor is notably striking in appearance with its angular edges, and raised fluted ridges – these design elements are actually quite practical for these ridges strengthen the plate against impacts better than completely smooth surfaces of plate.

    Serious Armor! This has to be one of the best deals in REAL protection that I have found anywhere. This is no lightweight, dress-up ren fair costume piece. It’s THREE layers of 16ga. steel across your heart, liver, solar plexus and ribs. A blow to the center of mass will be spread across wide 16ga plates three times, diminishing the effects of the blow very, very well. Add a mail coat and a gambeson beneath this much steel and solid hits barely register. The back plate is also articulated and double-covers the kidneys, lower back and floating ribs making this a uniquely functional system!
    All that protection does tend to put stress on the shoulders, so I really recommend an extra padded gorget or coif with a wide base covering the shoulders.
    I’m 5’9″ / 180lbs and wear a size 42 jacket. A Large size (for a 45 inch chest) fit me well with a little tweaking here and there.
    This is about as much protection as one will ever find without shelling out really big money for a custom, professional piece.

    Nice cuirass Very solid 16G thickness for cuirass! Impressive articulation, however the major problem of this product is the poor angle on the back plate of being too straight, thus this heavy armour creates tremendous stress on the shoulders and cannot be solved unless you bend the back plate top more forward. NOT RECOMANDED FOR SMALL PERSON

    not for the frail I received this piece today and am very impressed with what I got for the price!!!! As far as production armor gos I will have to modify very little to fit my frame. This piece is not light weight … heavy and strong… just what I was hoping for!!! Very comfortable even just over a t-shirt … I would suggest a padded mantle or leather to distribute the weight across the top of the shoulder!!!! Definitely nicer than I expected at this price range!!!!!!!!

    Very Good Piece I purchased this for a harness to wear when training at my HEMA school, and it has performed very well. When using the correct undergarment/padding for myself, this cuirass fits well and does a very good job protecting the torso. The cuirass does not feel heavy or cumbersome at all once it is being worn, and it is very easy to move around in it. All in all, it was a great purchase.
