Similar suits of armour were used in the transition period between the 16th and 17th century. Around this period the cavalrymen were more often equipped with firearms instead of a lance. This kind of armour was used for warfare and protected the complete body.

The tassets are made of one piece and the suit of armour can be expanded with sabatons. The straight standing edges on the pauldrons give the neck extra protection. The cuirass is slightly goose bellied.

The armour is made of cold rolled plate steel. It is available with a steel thickness of 1,3 or 1,5 mm and with an unpolished, polished or bronzed finish.
