The Sigrun Leather Body Kit designed by Alex Agricola, is a tough leather armour with an attractive centrepiece and scaled sides, it is one of our most unique designs.
The Sigrun body is a combination of formed breast sections that create a practical shape suitable for combat comfort. Over 100 individual front and rear scales are combined to create a fully functional armour which also allows the wearer good freedom of movement. The scales are all made using overlapping suede-backed 3.2mm veg.

You will also need a dye/stain to add the colour of your choice and resolene or similar to seal the leather against bad weather.
