This arm harness is made in the style of the famous mid 14th century suit of armor of Churburg castle in the north of Italy. It covers the lower arms, elbows and upper arms. The Churburg suit of armor is representative of the plate armor style of northern Italy in the middle to late 14th century. It was not a full plate design like the styles of the 15th century, instead the plate armor pieces were intended to be worn over a full hauberk and provide additional protection for the chest and the arms. The arm harness has a steel thickness of 1,6 mm, making it suitable for reenactment battles.

Maintenance & care

Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.
