Soldiers who weren't part of the nobility weren't affluent enough to afford armor, so they wore the next best thing: the brigandine. As thrusting swords were developed to be more effective against mail, plate armor was a necessity. Steel plates were riveted into a coat, creating a highly flexible garment that could be worn over a gambeson or mail. Sometimes well-heeled knights and noblemen wore very elaborate brigandines with the plate rivets affixed in complex patterns.

The brigandine appeared in the closing years of the 14th century. It reached its apex of popularity in the 15th century and remained in common use into the next century. It is similar in concept to modern-day ballistic vests - which are cloth vests containing metal or ceramic plates.

This Brigandine is crafted from free-breathing cotton with plates riveted in between its layers. The plates and rivets are crafted from 16 gauge steel with individual plates measuring 5" x 3-/4". The short sleeves have an open armpit design for mobility and ventilation. Adjustable leather straps with unique brass buckles secure the sides. Made by Noble Armoury.
