When it comes to armor, the Vikings preferred something functional and light. After all, if you fell overboard while traveling, plate armor made it hard to swim. This RFB Viking Leather Armour is affordable LARP armor with a definite Viking style. And that is good, because it means not only will you look fearsome (on a budget, no less, which is always nice), but you will also retain your mobility and agility, which will make you a fearsome force to be reckoned with, on the field of battle. This armor has a rough appearance, which makes it all the more suited for Viking or barbarian looks, while the chest plate consists of woven diagonal bands of 7/8 oz. leather. The pattern is a striking one, as well as an effective one, and it serves well when it comes to keeping the wearer safe and secure. The harness features a back plate for added defense, as well as two buckled shoulder straps, which are highly adjustable and fitted with sliding leather accents, for added comfort. The armor is relatively free and open around the arms, which gives you full use of your sword and your shield arm (and consequently, makes this armor predominantly sized around the abdomen and waist, instead of the chest). It also features two pair of long leather straps that buckle about the waist and abdomen, which help to make this leather breastplate far more accommodating in size then it first appears. Effective in battle, great to look at, and offered at a low price? This RFB Viking Leather Armour is a LARP warriors dream, and there is no denying that point.
