Designed by Black Raven Armoury founder Alex Agricola the Sigrun leather Body Chest Piece Breast plate is the core of the Sigrun range. It comes with striking original Norse Art by the talented artist Vitor Gonzalez and was conceived to tackle the eons old question ‘what does a lady wear to battle?”
The Sigrun leather armour is hand built by Black Raven Armoury’s master armour smiths from the very best quality
When designing the Sigrun Leather Armoury Alex wanted to offer shield maidens and warrior queens something a little more practical than a chain mail bikini.
Too often words like impractical, overtly sexual and uncomfortable are used to describe female armour.
The Sigrun female Leather body/breast plate/ chest-piece is an ideal leather armour for women and offers both elegance and protection.
The Sigrun, body is ideal as a standalone armour or can be combined with the matching greaves and vambraces for a regal look, or with any of our our other leg and arm guards to create a more unique style.
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.
This strong feminine armour is adjustable at the front, sides & rear shoulders.
“I fist saw her at court in Baron Heinrich von Lauffer’s estate. She wore the armour of a warrior queen. I’d never seen a lady so regal who wasn’t a queen… well, she wasn’t a queen then…”
Size options vary from 36” bust up to a 54” bust and C cup to an F cup.
This armour is designed to be worn and used and is suitable for LARPING and re-enactment and is detailed enough to be used on screen, it will stand up to close scrutiny and the sternest critique.LARP Armours : All of our LARP Armours are a minimum of 3.2 to mm - 1/8 to 9/64 Inch - 8 to 10 oz Thickness, this is perfect for LARP and Cosplay events where any "combat" that occurs is non lethal and typically involves rubber covered foam weapons with plastic, or fiberglass cores. SCA Armours : All of our SCA armours are laminated to a minimum 6.5 mm- 1/4 Inch - 16 oz Thickness, many also have a degree of water hardening, this combination of hardened laminated leather is ideally suited to SCA and HEMA combat
Please be aware that all of the Armours Black Raven produces are hand made and finished to order, so please allow sufficient time ahead of your event when ordering.
