As a squire, you must wake with the sun to prepare for your training. You are responsible for your master as well as your extra chores, and it’s only after the morning’s water is boiled and you’ve set out your master’s clothing and polished armour that you are allowed to begin your drills.
What armour you own--RFB Padded Armour--is easy enough for you to wear as you practice your sword swings. One day you will be a fearsome knight. For now, you must continue to train hard and build your skills.
Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Padded Armour is a long padded, sleeveless coat covering the body from the shoulders to the upper thighs. Made from quilted cotton canvas lined with a soft polyester interior and a medium cotton outer layer, this padding can be worn on its own or as padding beneath heavy steel or leather armour. Suede split-leather lining at the neck prevents tearing or splitting with excessive wear against armour, while also adding additional comfort to the neck.
The RFB Padded Armour is stitched to ensure the padding will remain evenly spaced. This coat provides ease of movement thanks to the slitted front, back and sides. Adjust it to your size by tying the cotton straps at the hips. With its neutral style, the RFB Padded Armour will work on a wide variety of characters. Match it with other Epic Armoury armours and clothes to fit your unique style!
