An intimidating leather cuirass designed to protect the whole torso. Secure this armour tight over the chest and abdomen using two sturdy leather straps and brass buckles along each side. This cuirass is crafted to be especially hardy by stitching together overlapping full-grain leather and secured with brass studs. At the neck, an additional leather plate serves as a gorget. For additional protection, matching upper leg guards are attached to the cuirass with hardy leather straps. Along the rims of the armour, the edges are indented and painted white to unify the entire set. The effect is a dangerous looking piece of armour.
Constructed to match the entire set, these shoulder plates are made from overlapping full-grain leather secured together by brass studs. The pauldron attaches to the cuirass over the shoulder by securing leather ties through the breastplate, protecting the head and neck with the additional leather-molded guard. Additional attached leather lames protect the upper arm and are secured with a hardy leather strap just above the elbows. Along the rims of the armour, the edges are indented and painted white to unify the entire set.

The gauntlet secures to the arm over a suede glove for comfort. Along the rims of the armour, the edges are indented and painted white to unify the entire set.

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.
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.
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.
