You have travelled a long way to get here, and even though this battle does not hold any greater personal cause for you, the payment more than makes up for your lack of conviction.

“It does not pay to have principles.” Casual pocket philosophy delivered to you by an over-the-hill mercenary, with drunken certainty many miles up the road on the journey, that led you to this livelode. As it turns out, it has become a rule of life for you.

You decide to camp for the night and after tending to your horse, you take off your armour and carefully place it beside your impromptu bed. You will be wearing it at the following day’s engagement and it will protect you just as always ...

DETAILS

Very few things offer greater protective qualities than steel, when it comes to historical armour. But with steel also comes disadvantages like weight, inflexibility and the need for constant maintenance to protect against rust. Nevertheless, in this day and age, unless you are on the re-enactment or SCA battlefield, you simply don’t need the level of protection that steel affords.

We here at Epic Armoury would like to present our Light Kit Edition Armours. Light Kit Armours are armours made out of Polyurethane, meant to resemble authentic metallic armours. Created with weight, comfort and utility in mind, Light Kit edition armours are for those people, who want to look like they are wearing authentic metallic armours while being comfortable.

To the untrained eye, these polyurethane armours are difficult to distinguish from their metallic counterparts.They are, however, more comfortable to wear and can be worn for long periods of time without discomfort. Indeed, the flexible nature of this armour means that it can bend to the contours of your body in a way that rigid steel will not. Each part is typically a quarter of the weight of their steel equivalent, allowing for faster movement with less fatigue. Each piece is hand painted with a durable acrylic finish and is detailed to look as realistic as possible. The maintenance free finish will not rust like steel does and can be worn in all kinds of weather. Adjustable leather straps and the flexible nature of the armour allows it to be comfortably worn.The Mercenary Light Kit Helmet is inspired by Medieval mercenaries and era typical armour.

This armour is perfect for a variety of uses such as LARP, Cosplay, Costume Parties or Theatre.

Available in size L-XL

  • Maintenance

    With proper care and attention, your purchase should last for many years.

    Your armour is made from a polyurethane material that is very strong and will maintain its shape and form if looked after correctly.

    Please be aware that although the armour is strong, it is designed to be used for costume purposes only and should not be used or relied upon for protection!

    Do not leave out in the sun for long periods of time, as heat can make the polyurethane malleable to the touch.

    CLEANING

    Your item has been professionally finished with durable paint and polish. Inevitably, as with any painted surface, you will get scratches and wear and tear over time.

    For surface soiling we recommend washing with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, avoiding leather straps.

    Do NOT use any solvent-based cleaners or insect sprays on or near the armour.

    Leather straps can be polished with normal shoe polish but avoid getting polish onto the armour surface.

    STORAGE

    Breastplates and backplates should be strapped together and ideally hung on a coat hanger or similar hanging system. Shoulders also are best stored on hangers.

    Helmets should ideally be placed on a stand so that any protruding features such as nasals and ear flaps are hanging free. We have helmet stands available in our online shop if needed.

    We recommend that leg armour and braces are strapped around something cylindrical when not in use; drainpipes and drinks bottles could be used for example.

    Do NOT store armour on or near to a heat source as this can cause warping.
