£53.12

Be the first to review this product

The Muscle Cuirass first appeared in Archaic Greece and became more widespread during the 4th and 5th centuries BC. It formed part of the standard equipment of the heavily armoured Greek Hoplite and was crafted by casting and hammering bronze plate. This style of armour was available in many forms and in general, the more defined the features, the higher the status of the wearer. In later periods it was adopted by the Roman army and was specifically reserved for officers.

This Breastplate (does not include back plate) is formed from 18 gauge steel with a bronze plated finish. It features adjustable leather straps and will fit most adults. Not recommended for full contact reenactment.
