Brigandine Splint - Leg Armour
A brigandine is a style of armour made from a leather or fabric with metal plates riveted into it. Medieval brigandines were influenced by the design of coat of plates armour, which developed in the late 12th century. The development of leg and arm brigandine protection in this style began during the 14th century in the transitional armour period between mail and plate.
These brig legs are made from 4mm thick dark brown leather with 16 gauge riveted steel plates.
The legs can be adjusted to size for the best fit using the six leather straps and buckles.
The back of the steel plates are blacked to improve corrosion resistance.
