Medieval Armor ᐉ Medieval Armoury Armour Shop

Armor is a garment dedicated to protecting various parts of the body from an opponent's attacks. It is part of the so-called "defensive weapons" and although it can be made of many materials, including leather, wood, shell beads, bone and even cotton and natural fibers; the word is commonly related to Asian-European metal armor.




At MedievalArmoury you will find replicas of vintage weapons and armor. Swords, shields, daggers, crossbows, foils, axes, halberds, pistols, rifles, bows, chain mail, breastplates, pikes, katanas.

Roman and medieval functional armor


A functional armor, unlike the ornamental ones, allows you to equip yourself with it with freedom of movement and protection similar to the reference models. Available as pieces or complete, MedievalArmoury's armors are versatile and visually appealing items, ideal for historical reenactment, performance, or cosplay.
The most complex armor pieces to make are those that protect joints. Gauntlets, shoulder pads, elbow pads or tassels must allow mobility, and are made from different sections. The gauntlet was the one with the most pieces.

Learn about functional Roman armor


Medieval armors were expensive protections, made to measure and with a cutting-edge design for their time. When you try on full armor for the first time, you will be surprised by its comfort, as the weight of the protections is distributed over the body.
The segmented lorica is the ancestor of medieval armor and consists of adjustable horizontal metal bands. As legionnaires fought with a full body shield, the lorica leaves the arms exposed and only protects the torso.
Roman segmented lorica was not standardized and, with multiple variants, was the common armor of the legionaries of the High Empire and of the Praetorian Guard. Auxiliary troops wore other types of armor, such as chain mail (lorica hamata), or armor with overlapping metallic scale pattern (lorica scamata).
In MedievalArmoury you also have the muscled lorica model, a model of the high-ranking legionary officers that mimicked the musculature of the body.




Armor pieces from different eras


The pectorals and backs are the pieces that protect the upper part of the body. From the Middle Ages to modern ceramic bulletproof vests, a balance between weight, protection and mobility is always sought. According to the use and the time, its sophistication increases.
The scarf is a set of elements that hang from the bib and protect the groin. They present subtle differentiating the models for riding on horseback and for fighting on foot, such as the protection of the coccyx. The rest of the leg is protected with leg pads for the thighs, knee pads and greaves for the shins.
Another factor that influences the configuration of the breastplates and backs is the geographical origin of the armor. The protections of warriors such as Vikings or those of a European knight are different from oriental armor such as those of samurai, who fought with different weapons and techniques.
