This cuirass is made in the 15th century gothic (German) style. It protects the torso and the upper thighs while still providing excellent upper body movement due to the articulated faulds under the breastplate. Gothic armor was very popular with knights in central europe and can be recognised by its acute shapes and intricate fluted decorations, giving it a very elegant, almost fantasy-like appearance. The cuirass has a steel thickness of 1,2 mm, making it suitable for costume and display. It is easily adjustable to your size with the belts and buckles it comes with.
