The Astrid SCA Full Set

I am delighted to announce the release of Astrid Leather Body Armour…. This superb ladies armour was developed along with the Jarl to meet the requirements of the SCA and others for a tough combat ready body armour

I designed this armour to be something that not only performs as any real armour should, but at the same time, a second skin you can rely on to dull those blows… Just like all my designs, never “just for show” I wanted the Astrid, to give its wearers, that sense of sisterhood, of shieldmaidens of an earlier time.

The Full Set consists of  Astrid Body, Belt, Shoulders, Tassets, Greaves and Vambraces and is formed to a practical shape suitable for combat comfort and will fit bust sizes ranging from 36 – 44 inches (91 – 112 cm’s)

This armour is designed to be worn and used and is suitable for SCA and re-enactment and is detailed enough to be used on screen, it will stand up to close scrutiny and the sternest critique.
