Welcome to our pages of Functional Body Armor Cuirass and Breastplates section. Our armour has been designed to suit the needs of medieval and Renaissance period re-enactors as well as other re-enactment societies.
We provide a great selection of Historical Body Armor - Cuirasses and Breastplates from the Medieval and Renaissance periods, which are Fully Functional and Battle Ready. Our Functional Body Armor can be used for SCA combat as well as theatrical stage fighting. For this type of use we recommend using either 16 gauge steel or 14 ga steel Armor Breastplates. Most of our Armors are sold as a Cuirass which consists of both the Chest Armor (Breastplate) and the Back Armor (Back Plate).
Our Medieval Breastplates and Renaissance Breastplates are hand forged and many are available in different steel thicknesses of 14 gauge, 16 gauge or 18 gauge. Many Breastplates are available for custom sizing and finishes. We recommend wearing our functional armor Breastplates over our gambesons or arming jacks.
