From wealthy men-at-arms to humble archers, most XV century warrior appreciated the good protection offered by a light and comfortable mail gorget. In fact, in the Burgundian army, this piece of equipment was compulsory for men-at-arms and coutiliers (lightly armoured cavalry similar to English “demi-lance”) but also for mounted archers, crossbowmen and handgunners.
Our mail gorget are made of properly riveted mail like all real medieval originals. Their strong 9mm 17G rings and thick leather lining make them ideal for heavy fighting and “Pas d’Armes” competition.
Finish : blackened, in accordance with several sources of this era.
