G’day guys,

I’m interesting in some quality medieval armor in particular steel breastplates and leather coat of plates, I’ve found a few sites but im hoping to get a good cross section.

I would be grateful for any links you can share for quality makers / sources of armor from any era.

Cheers
Paul

Hey Pual,

If it interests you, I have a Wintertree Crafts Coat of Plates arriving soon. I plan on posting about it once I have it.

I went with the red leather.

I purchased a linen gambeson from steel-mastery a few years back, in the short term I will be wearing that. I intend to eventually get a hauberk (one similar to this). So on my torso I will have on (moving from closest to the body outwards):

1. Light linen shirt
2. 14th Century Linen Pourpoint
3. Gambeson
4. Hauberk
5. Coat of plates (could be a breat plate here as well)

My understanding is this accurate for the mid-late 14th century. I imagine I shall be quite warm---
