The "Kaspar" torso armour, consisting of front- and backplate, is the heart of this germans rider armour. To sit in the saddle or on anything else, there is a articulated plate made from 2 pieces in the back. The rims are to attach the fitting "Kaspar" tassets. The neck area of the armour is very wide, because unlike most armours, the "Kaspar" gorget is worn underneath the torso armour. We recommend to always wear a gambeson or at least a padded gorget underneath.
