Now I'm pretty sure that this is in fact a cloth covered couter. Rather than a peice of brigandine but just wanted to make sure.

I really like the look of these and plan on making some, along with my brig but I waned to make sure it was ok'd for 1480s Otherwise ill just make some for the sake of learning.

Yes that is a cloth covered couter.


I have researched and made countless brigandines and I dont know of any historical source where a couter is covered in fabric in this context.
If i can be proven wrong i would like to know.

Ash is right, they are yet another re-enactorism. The cloth covered spaulders are a bit weird too for that period. although there are brigandine constructed versions. The Tyrol brig symposium book has some examples if i recall, but most are into the 16th cent.
