  • The Eagle - Roman Vambraces

    The young Roman centurion, Flavius Aquila, who has been afflicted his entire life with the loss of his father 20 years before – with him the eagle standard of the ninth legion disappeared. When he hears rumours that the standard has been seen in the enemy territory of the Picts, Flavius and his slave, Esca, set off on a dangerous journey to restore his family's honour.

    The official vambraces from the period movie are handcrafted of solid steel, coated in brass and decorated with a sculptural ornament. Light marks and scratches lend the battle gear an authentically antiqued look. With a weight of 350 g each, the vambraces have excellent wearing comfort, as they are padded with a layer of suede on the inside. You can pull the sturdy leather straps with a thickness of over 4 mm through brass rings to fasten them to your body.

    Width (top): 12 cm
    Width (bottom): 9 cm
    Length: 17.5 cm
    Weight: 350 g

  • Leather Vambraces

    Vambraces were used in various forms throughout history and offered some protection and support for the wrists and lower forearm. They are similar to the leather Bracers used by archers, but vambraces were usually worn on both arms.

    The outer is constructed from stiff black leather hide with a padded natural coloured suede lining.  Attachment to the arms is by leather laces which allows them to be adjusted to fit most arm girths.

    Length: 25 cm

    This is a handmade product, and there may be variations in colour and dimensions from piece to piece.

  • Spartacus Crixus Leather Manica

    At the center of the hit TV series, "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," is the historical portrayal of the legendary slave revolt in the Roman Republic. Alongside the protagonist, the Gallic gladiator, Crixus, plays a prominent role – he was, after all, the best gladiator far and wide before Spartacus showed up on the scene.

    Part of Crixus' armor and that of gladiators more generally was a manica, Latin for "long sleeve." It goes without saying that our Crixus Leather Manica was made of genuine leather and is a detailed recreation of the TV prototype. This spectacular arm guard is easy to put on your arm and fastens around the opposite shoulder. Its particular construction hardly reduces your range of movement – 17 individual leather panels are connected by leather straps along the shoulder and arm. You can adjust the manica for a more individualized fit with three metal buckles and adjustable leather straps. Although the Crixus Leather Manica is intended for the right arm, it can also be worn on the left arm. Does not include any other costume pieces or accessories shown.

    Manica length: 82 cm (without fastening straps).

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

  • Spartacus Leather Shoulder Guard

    They didn't mince words or swords in ancient Rome – we knew this even before top quality TV series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" started airing in 2010. But our shoulder guard is based on the one in the TV series that deals with the life of the gladiator Spartacus. You wear this segmented shoulder guard made of genuine leather on your right side. It protects your upper arm and your armpit, which is normally exposed when a gladiator raises his arm to make a cut.

    A narrow leather strap with a small metal buckle fastens our Spartacus Shoulder Guard to your biceps and the wider strap with the large metal buckle makes sure it is seated properly on your shoulder. A fabulous piece of armour – for LARP characters as well as ancient Romans!
