Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.

Your squire straps your RFB Mantle around your neck before adding the gorget and helmet. With the helmet placed firmly over your head, you say a prayer to your god and your small unit strikes out onto the road.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Mantle is a quilted cotton pad designed to add comfort and protection beneath your neck and shoulder armour. Made from quilted cotton canvas lined with a soft polyester interior and a medium cotton outer layer, this mantle can be worn on its own or as padding beneath heavy steel or leather armour.

The RFB Mantle is stitched to ensure the padding will remain evenly spaced. Secure it around your neck by tying the cotton strings at the shoulders, allowing for some adjustments. Quilted armours were common through many cultures and used across a broad expanse of time. With its neutral style, the RFB Mantle will work on a wide variety of characters.

Available in X-Small/Small, Medium/Large, and X-Large/XX-Large.

HISTORY

  • Used as padding under chainmail or plate armour
  • Historically, a high-medieval European gambeson was recorded as being capable of stopping sword blows from penetrating the skin
  • Could stop heavy arrows and mace and axe impacts with the addition of overlaying chainmail

  • Maintenance

    This medium cotton product is soft to the touch, but heavier than light cotton. This material wrinkles easily, but can be ironed on a medium heat level.

    Cleaning

    Machine wash at 40°C / 104°F. Please make sure to wash it once before use in order to make sure that remaining dye will be removed from the product. It is advised to wash with similar coloured clothes to reduce the risk of dye imprint. Tumble dry on low heat, but be aware that it might shrink up to 5%. For general stains or discoloration, treat with a commercial fabric cleaner, or blot with tepid water and a soft cloth.

    Tents: Shipping tents are more costly than the average product from www.epicarmoury.com, which is why they do not apply for our bulk discount. Unfortunately, we do not currently ship tents to countries outside the European Union without a beforehand agreed upon shipping cost. If you live outside the European Union and wish to purchase a tent, please contact us at info@epicarmoury.com for a shipping quote. We are working towards a solution that will allow everyone to order tents, including shipping directly from our webshop. Before purchasing a tent, we highly recommend that you scrutinise local rules and regulations for the usage of recreational tents.
