It was a brigandine, smaller pllates and the triple studs are a give away.
Its a simple form one - no shoulders or arms.
very light and comfortable to wear.

Evidently I have much to learn about armour :D

Looked like it offered great mobility as well as protection,too.

I'd forgotten that they did padding as well! Cheers, Brendan! :D

Their 13th century gambesons look about perfect for what we're doing, plus very encouraging to see a section of the Maciejowski bible as its inspiration... And not too bad on the budget either...

I had a very long and longing look, I can assure you! Our own Alex Lee has ordered one from them.... Torn between them and Cap-A-Pie at the moment..
Matuls are more expensive, the quality looks fantastic.

I have one from Matuls and it is quite good, too heavy for the purpose I intended it - under maille - but good nonetheless
