Dawn is still an hour away, the sky still a deep blue as you don your Female Leather Armour and head out to the training grounds. You are a warrior and a loyal soldier, and you take your role seriously. Before the sun rises you will have practiced your sword strikes one thousand times.
Your muscles are perfected with the ingrained memory of those strikes. Your dedicated training makes combat as easy as breathing, and you look forward to testing your skills once more on the battlefield.
Epic Armoury’s Female Leather Armour is a leather cuirass designed to protect the female torso while also providing great flexibility. The upper chestplate, shaped to the female body, is made from sturdy full-grain leather and covers the shoulder, chest, and under the arms. Soft split-leather covers the abdomen and back to allow great mobility, embellished with a squared stitching pattern and a scalloped edge along the top. A stiff full-grain leather flange is stitched to the lower edge to help turn blows away from the hips.
Wear the Female Leather Armour by adjusting the leather cords along the flanks and front opening, and the leather straps along the shoulders. This armour is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armour pieces. While designed to fit an Imperial setting, the style will also match a broad range of worlds and characters, allowing you the freedom to create your own unique style.
Available in colours Black, Brown/Red and Dark Brown/Red; and sizes Small, Medium and Large.
Historically looked down upon as a form of armour, as metal was preferred Finely crafted leather cuirasses were often worn by high-ranking officers and officials, including several Roman Emperors
Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
