You are a citizen of the Roman Empire, and a professional heavy infantryman of the Roman Army. You enlisted in your legion for twenty-five years of service, and you are both relieved and anxious to know you have only a few years left.

As you double-check that your military-issued Roman Belt and other armour is secure, you feel prepared alongside your fellow soldiers to go into battle. You just hope that your training will continue to serve you well. At the very least, you have confidence in the sharpness of your weapon.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Roman Belt is a belt inspired by the military belt worn by ranking Roman soldiers. The Roman Belt’s five hanging leather plates and metal fittings protect the groin, but ultimately this is more for a show of rank than for armour.

Made from heavy canvas and rimmed with soft leather, this belt is constructed to prevent tearing or deforming in order to provide a durable solution to your Roman-inspired costume. With a sturdy cotton cord tied at the back, adjust this belt to a large range of sizes to fit your unique body.

    This product is handmade and hand-painted and therefore unique. As a result, when compared with similar item numbers, this product can have natural deviations in pattern, colour and shape, which are not considered defects or faults.
    We produce our image material in a natural environment, where lighting and surroundings can affect colors and contrast. The displayed images may therefore appear different from the product you receive from us.

    Measurements are all in cm if not stated otherwise.

  • Maintenance

    Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.

    Cleaning

    Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

    Conditioning

    You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.

    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.
