These pauldrons (shoulder armor) are constructed from articulated plates of 20 gauge steel riveted to a backing of durable internal leather straps. The interior of the armor is blackened.
The armor will require a separate gorget or breastplate with integrated straps to fit these pauldrons. The pauldrons have buckles on the top which are meant to buckle into these other armor pieces to support them. These other armor pieces are sold separately. The armor is fitted to the upper arm with an additional steel buckle and strap.
Please Note: These pauldrons were photographed with a gorget for demonstration purposes only. The gorget is not included with the set of pauldrons.
