The vast wastelands are dangerous, and so you are armed to the teeth. Guns, knives, and even a chainsaw are kept handy should the specific need arise to use them. Your favourite, however, is your Riot Shield.
The large piece of metal is practically indestructible. It’s a tried and true way of protecting yourself from your enemies, and the reason you will survive while others might not.
Dark Moon’s Riot Sheild is a realistic looking latex shield used by riot police, designed to be used against raider bullets and zombie claws alike. The Riot Shield is sculpted and handpainted to look like metal, heavily damaged in combat. A white stenciled ‘375 DM’ decorates the front of this matte-coloured shield, just below the covered slit that allows you to orient yourself on the battlefield while remaining protected.
Wear this Riot Shield left- or right-handed with the use of four versatile leather arm straps on the back. Feel confident that this hard EVA foam and latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.

All latex-coated products need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex shield in a cool, dry environment. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your shield from adhering to other products.
