You have travelled a long way to get here, and even though this battle does not hold any greater personal cause for you, the payment more than makes up for your lack of conviction.
“It does not pay to have principles.” Casual pocket philosophy delivered to you by an over-the-hill mercenary, with drunken certainty many miles up the road on the journey, that led you to this livelode. As it turns out, it has become a rule of life for you.
You decide to camp for the night and after tending to your horse, you take off your armour and carefully place it beside your impromptu bed. You will be wearing it at the following day’s engagement and it will protect you just as always ...
Very few things offer greater protective qualities than steel, when it comes to historical armour. But with steel also comes disadvantages like weight, inflexibility and the need for constant maintenance to protect against rust. Nevertheless, in this day and age, unless you are on the re-enactment or SCA battlefield, you simply don’t need the level of protection that steel affords.
We here at Epic Armoury would like to present our Light Kit Edition Armours. Light Kit Armours are armours made out of Polyurethane, meant to resemble authentic metallic armours. Created with weight, comfort and utility in mind, Light Kit edition armours are for those people, who want to look like they are wearing authentic metallic armours while being comfortable.
To the untrained eye, these polyurethane armours are difficult to distinguish from their metallic counterparts.They are, however, more comfortable to wear and can be worn for long periods of time without discomfort. Indeed, the flexible nature of this armour means that it can bend to the contours of your body in a way that rigid steel will not. Each part is typically a quarter of the weight of their steel equivalent, allowing for faster movement with less fatigue. Each piece is hand painted with a durable acrylic finish and is detailed to look as realistic as possible. The maintenance free finish will not rust like steel does and can be worn in all kinds of weather. Adjustable leather straps and the flexible nature of the armour allows it to be comfortably worn.
This armour is perfect for a variety of uses such as LARP, Cosplay, Costume Parties or Theatre.
