This is a rugged reproduction of the Medieval Roman Armor Muscled Cuirass from the late 5th Century.
This armor breastplate is made of hand-forged 18 gauge steel that has been painted black and adorned with brass accents. Leather tassels with brass accents are attached to the bottom of the breastplate.
The straps are made of sturdy Leather and the buckles are 18 gauge steel and adjustable for a comfortable fit. The entire strap is riveted to the plate metal of the cuirass. This is a solid piece of medieval armor that won't come apart while you're wearing it. This item is shipped to you pre-oiled for protection. Helmet sold separately.
I've been ordering from BUDK for a while now so I took the plunge and ordered a membership then bought a few higher priced pieces. I'm normally pleased with the quality vs price point on edged weapons but have found some of the more unique items to have quality control issues. This piece is one of the latter. Although heavy and well oiled I found that the fitment was uncomfortable and just... strange. Even without a gambeson. GOOD: Heavy, oiled, and sculpted steel provides coverage. CONS: Doesn't fit an average 34" waist and 42" chest. No measurements on BUDK site, so no way to consider this. And although the 'abs' look good why the hell are the nipples so far up? I mean, they're literally at my collar bone. The effect is really weird. Thankfully BUDK service was accommodating and a return was initiated without much trouble.
